Sorry, I must have missed it. You've seen some comparison images where the GM was sharper than the FE85/1.8 at comparable apertures? Since I'm close to buying one of these lenses, please share the link with me. (I'm not questioning that the GM wins on rendering.)
I don't like saying this, but a couple of tests, I think using Imatest show that the GM is slightly sharper wide open at 1.4 than the 1.8/85 is at 1.8, which is really something.
That doesn't mean much on its own, it may not translate to any real world benefits and sharpness is the third of fourth most important characteristic of any lens. The look of the GM is what does it for me, I'd considered selling it and replacing it with the 1.8 as it's lighter and smaller with faster AF, but may just use the 55 for the fast AF instead and crop in.
The sunstars are nice to have, but if I need them I'll be focusing manually anyway, so may as well just go the Loxia route, or Fred's other marriage meddling options.
