Nope, my Z85 1.8S makes easily visible better pictures than my 85 1.8D in normal viewing on the normal screen I look at.

Instead of saying it, put up side by side images. Let us decide if the lenses make the image.

I'm of the belief it doesn't. But you have an opportunity here to change my mind.

Happy to leave your mind unchanged.

For very good reason, I suspect. Kind of a lame reply on your part.

I would be really nice to see some images. As a user of the 85 1.8D myself! But if not possible could you clarify what you mean by visibly better pictures? Are you talking about portraits? if so would be great to understand your point of view. Many thanks Toby

Here's the $797 85 1.8S compared to the $427 85 1.8G. The 85 1.8S is already so much visibly better, isn't it? Now just imagine how it would totally destroy the 85 1.8D! It can be done if you have a really vivid imagination. LOL /s
