Sigma 85mm f/1.4 focuses quicker than the Nikkor 85mm f/1.4 G... and even w/ the G on sale, the Sigma still beats it on price at $894.
They were referring to the 1.8G, which is on sale for $396. The Sigma beats the Nikon 1.4G in price, but not the 1.8.
I stand corrected. If best-bang-for-buck is the criteria, well, yeah, I'd have to concede that it'd be harder than an 85mm f/1.8.
But having the extra almost full-stop of f/1.4 vs. f/1.8 is nice. If I didn't make my living from this, though- well, it would depend on how secure my employment was.
