I used to have the 1.8 but I found a good deal on a used 1.4D. It is just an amazing portrait lens and that is what I use it for most of the time and I wouldn't go back.

In my opinion and experience the advantages of the 1.8 is size, weigth, autofocus speed and it is a better general purpose lens.

I dont think anyone will argue Debbie that the 85 1.8 is a bad lens...it clearly isn't. But for your work the f/1.4 is the lens to get. The AF-D can be had for a steal now go get it!
