This came off Tom Hogan's site from a post he made yesterday. The first number is regular price, the second is the current discount and the third is what B&H is advertising the lens for.
85mm f/1.4G US$1699 US$200 US$1399 Look at the price difference between this and the next lens. Is it worth it for 2/3 of a stop? No.
85mm f/1.8G US$499 US$100 US$396 A huge bargain at the new price. Especially compared to the f/1.4G. Most of the optically for very little of the price. This really should be the 85mm prime choice for most shooters.
