Cons:

Not to dispute the claims for the 85 1.4G - but you can buy a 1.8G for general usage + a 1.4D for portraits and have $500+ left over

Great lens but is it worth the money to upgrade? Depends upon you needs and the 85 1.4D is still a fine lens

Pros: Sharp, Beautiful Bokeh, Build quality, Size compared to pro zooms
Cons:
Cost

I have found a new favorite lens. It is now my primary lens; when I need something else, then I replace it for a short time. It yields "dreamy" images. Sharp with a nice background. Compared to my 24-70 f2.8 and 70-200 f2.8 it is a notch above. Nicer size than my zooms.

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.
