You have received good logical questions for you to answer when deciding. Excellent.

I may not be the best advisor, for when I buy, logic has very little to do with it, even when trying hard.

Do you like it? Do you want it? Can you afford it? Get it!

My 85mm f/1.4D AF was bought almost as soon as it came out to market.
Without even using it, just looking at its crinkel finish, feeling its hefty weight and marveling at is robust construction.... it was love at first site.

Below two images made at f/1.4.
The first one was the first image I made with it on an F5 (or F6):
