Anybody using a D800 and a 85mm 1.4G or 1.8G lens ?
I read a few places on the internet that the 85mm 1.8G is almost just as good as the 1.4G lens.... only main difference is that the one can stop down to 1.4.
They say that on the D800 the 14G is not 3 times, or even 2 times better than the 1.8G but that the price of the 1.4G is 3 times as much.

I need a portrait lens for my D800 for weddings, so far been using the 24-70 and 70-200 but would like something to stop down to 1.8 or maybe even 1.4.

I just do not know if it is worth getting the 1.4G over the 1.8G on the D800 for 3 times the price ???
