I've been using my trusty 80-200mm AFD lens to take portraits for several years now but find that when inside I don't always have room and at f2.8 it's a little soft. I was considering getting the covited Nikon 85mm f1.4 AFD IF since I've heard such good things about it. I have a 24-85mm f2.8-4 AFD that actually is sharper than a 28-70mm f2.8 AFS lens I tried. I was also considering waiting for the new 24-70 f2.8 AFS G lens that's soon to come out. Also I should mention that I do have a 50mm f1.4 AFD that I can use inside when conditions get tight or outside for group shots even though I tend to use the 80-200 and 24-85 more often. Who has used the Nikon 85mm f1.4 AFD and what is your opinion. I like the 24-70 range for use in getting candids of kids and adults as well as a wedding lens but I don't need to spend $1600 on another lens that's not going to give me much more than my current 24-85. However, the 85 f1.4 in theory should allow me to shoot faster with available light and use less fill flash; right? Another question. Would I expect the depth of field at 2.8 to be the same on the 85mm f1.4 as I would on my 80-200 f2.8 at 80mm? I would expect the 85mm at 2.8 to be sharper then the 80-200. Whats your experience and opinion. Thanks.
