Hey guys! Thanks for all the feedback!
@Hardcore: that's a great point about comparing the 85mm 1.4. Unfortunately, I don't have any side by side comparison images at the moment, since I use both lenses for very different purposes (85 is my tele during wedding ceremonies and receptions, while the 58 is my closer-in for getting ready photos and model shoots). I'll see if I can make some side by side comparisons during a shoot, and post here.
@myam203: I actually reviewed both the 50mm 1.8G and 85mm 1.4G, but they are in different posts. Here are the links:
You bring up a good point though about those comparisons, so I'll link these reviews within the 58mm post.
@digicV: the price gets you the look and character of the lens. It's just really different from portrait lenses I've used prior, esp. with how it gives an ethereal feel to the images. The nano coating is definitely nice, but it's really just icing on the cake for this piece of glass.
