Pros: Great sharpness, contrast, color, build.
Cons:
Price

Although the 1.8G lenses that have recently been introduced have gotten some pretty good reviews, the 85mm F1.4G is one example of why a lens costs over 4X more. I have done some comparison shots with both the 1.8G and 1.4G and just find no comparison between the two. Yes the 1.8 is nice and sharp, but there is more to a lens than just sharpness. The color, contrast, bokeh, overall rendering, and build quality of the 1.4G is just absolutely gorgeous. Not everyone is going to care about the difference, not everyone is really going to see it. But it's there, and to someone who has shot for many years with some of the finest lenses made, the difference is absolutely worth the extra cost.
The 85mm F1.4G has become one of my very favorite lenses.
