Nikon 85mm F1.8 wide open

I covered a friend of a friend's Registry Of Marriage this afternoon, where I took photos of the young couple legally unite to become Husband and Wife. I am not one who have much experience in event photography, but I tried my best anyway and I feel happy for them. Following that, however, I met up with another TFCD model nearby, where I can use my 85mm F1.8 again! I tried shooting at F1.8 and here are some of the images made with this lens wide open. Here are the effects for full length body, half body and head and shoulders portraits. Once the focus is locked on correctly, even at full aperture, the sharpness leaves little more to be desired.

Nice shots, have you shot with the 85mm 1.4? If not, would you consider getting the 1.4 in the future and be worth the money?

Nice shots~ Have you shot with the 1.4? If not, would you consider getting the 1.4 in the future and suggest that it'll be worth the extra money in the long run for an extra 1/3 stop?

Hi thanks for your comments! I have not tried the Nikon 85mm F1.4 so I cannot comment. Anyone kind enough to loan me the lens for some testing? Hehe!
