    The HK price is always cheaper.
    Note that it is before 7% GST and cost for shipment to Singapore.
    Of course you could go there and buy, with additional cost for returned air tickets.

    nah. sorry about that. I was being too harsh on that. Coming from owning an Afd 85mm 1.4D, none of the photos really point out to me that there is an improvement.

    Anyone tried Nikon 85mm f1.4 Ais before? It has been reviewed as better than the f1.4d version. Not sure if better than this G version.

    They said at least for weddings, able to track couple walking down the aisle with con't AF much better than the AF-D. So depends on your usage.

    I owned AFD, and have tried AFS.

    The AFS one is focusing slower indeed.

    As mentioned by some review websites, AFS is slower because it takes time to lock on the focusing accuracy at f1.4. Hence, depend you want speed or accuracy. I would prefer accuracy for using it to take portraits.
