    A lot of AF 85mm f/1.4 D being dumped recently, aren't those worth considering? Or is it Sigma for faster and better AF?

    Dumped at high prices.

    If really want 85/1.4D, will go HK and get new for around $1300. with international warranty too.

    But really 85/1.4D also quite nice...

    some will swear by that the new 85 1.4D is god send, without worrying for failure to the afs motor, and the new version doesnt differ much, much cant be argue with LoCA and all the technical faults of the lens, as for me im leaning to the sigma as firstly HSM and the layman result that i see from my own test, im happy with... as for the focus speed not bad.... from what we tried that day...
    next test is with FX,

    either way the 85 1.4D is still a gem that u can consider too...

    Might as well go Sigma 85 f/1.4 right? Just top up less than $200 bucks?

    my lenses are more poisonous coz they're quite affordable

    You could actually go out there and buy all three with $1K, and still have some change .... ok based on 2nd hand pricing

    AF 85/1.8D's bokeh looks rather more 'nervous', but it's something I can live with (perhaps for now ) as I'm not really a portrait-shooter.

    Can do already lah... It's a hefty prime lens - more than worth it's value!

    I TC only... Will never know if I'd go f/1.4 for now... say say only...
