Hi!

I've posted this question on another board (Canon and Nikon users ... alot of Canon users!) and didn't get much of a response. Saying that; I know this is such an individual decision but I've been going back and forth and feel like another opinion would be so helpful.

So here's a little background ... I'm a complete beginner; just taking lovely pics of family and every day life. I have the D80 and have used my 50 1.4 all winter and just love it. The decsion between the 50 1.8 and 1.4 wasn't that difficult because there wasn't such a huge price difference.

I'm now moving outdoors (thank goodness!) and have seen great recommendations for the 85 1.8. I have the money for an 85 1.4, but I'm just wondering if I really will see that much of a difference ... given my novice level.

Even though I have the money for the 85 1.4, I'm just not sure that I'm good enough to spend the price difference.

So my question, is there really that much of a picture quality difference to justify the cost difference for this amateur?

Thanks so much!
Kasandra
