Re: F1.4 primes on FTZ, or F1.8 primes on your Z?

I have the Z 85/1.8 and the F 85/1.4 AIS (+FTZ), manual, and I use the Z lens exclusively.

At this focal length I don't need the shallower DoF of the1.4. In fact I often stop down.

I don't think it is about the manual focusing, the focus peaking is fine for me.And I have hand focused for 40+ years. I would not buy a Z 1.4 version.

Besides, I am waiting for my Z 800mm before buying anything else Nikon
