I have been reading a lot of reviews on the Nikon 85mm 1.4G and about the 85mm 1.8G, also articles of 1.4G vs 1.8G but I am still having a very hard time choosing.

I am a full time event photographer, so I do take a lot of portraits of brides inside their house and outside.

Currently my two lenses I use the most is a 27-80mm 2.8 and my 70-200mm 2.8 VR1

I do know that the bokeh on the 1.4G is much nicer than on the 1.8G but I have read a lot of people saying even though the 1.4G is better and nicer than the 1.8G it is not 3 times better since the price is 3 times more.

What is your opinion on this ? would you rather buy the 1.4G or is the 1.8G good enough for 3 times less $ ???
