    Apologies in advance for the model but the available talent was limited. Notice that the photographer has skilfully positioned a grey card in the photo (grey card page from one of Kelby's books propped open with an old lens and that the monitor is also tilted to allow a better view in the photo.
    The camera was triggered with a mouse click and is simply connected to the PC via a USB cable, it's that simple.

    thats very cool.

    first shot with the 85G.

    Your little angel is too cute. Already knows what to do when you aim the cam at them.

    lol @ gang signs.

    sharpness wide open:
    This lens is pretty sharp wide open; quite comfortabley sharper than the 1.4D.

    sharpness stopped down:
    up to around f2.8 the G is better. from 2.8 onwards they are the same.

    contrast wide open:
    G smokes the D. similar to the 24G, this lens has pretty impressive contrast from the get go.

    bokeh:
    the D is creamier; theres not much in it, but imho the G isnt quite as smooth. perhaps in time under nicer lighting and more careful usage my opinion will change.

    AF speed:
    G is better by maybe 20%. not as much improvement as i would have liked. speed is somewhere between the 50G and 24-70...closer to the 24-70. for anyone thats shot the canon 85L, its not as fast as the lastest 85L but quicker than the old one. competant while not being oustanding.

    AF tracking speed:
    the difference is profound. tracking speed of the 85G is excellent and smokes the 85D. again, excellent but not outstanding. it passes the "can you keep up with a 3yo boy test". the 85D could not keep up.

    AF noise:
    again, a profound difference. this is whisper quiet. probably the quietest lens i own.

    handling:
    full time MF override...please...not even comparable. nice chunky MF ring that feels nice to use for a nikkor...not zeiss like at all though. i dont like MF so not an issue for me but MF override is a huge bonus for me.

    build:
    the D, like all nikkor classics, feels and seems better built. the G feels solid like the 24-70, not plasticky likt the 50G. still, that modern design doesnt give the overall impression of bulletproof build like the 85D. it also doesnt feel as nice as the 85L

    lens hood:
    cheap tacky plastic POS. works well and love the secure click when engaged but it looks like sh*t imo.

    if i still had the 1.4 D i would upgrade because of 3 things.
    1. critical sharpness and contrast wide open is better
    2. AF speed when tracking and quietness is significantly better
    3. full time MF override is important to me

    hope this helps. if you use nikon and like fast primes, this one is a no brainer.
