This review is from: Nikon 85mm f/1.4D AF Nikkor Lens for Nikon Digital SLR Cameras (Electronics)
This lens is highly coveted by anyone that has ever shot with it. The 9-bladed aperture creates beautiful bokeh (the out of focus areas) and the sharpness, color and contrast are amazing. Primarily designed as a portrait lens, it really shines at f/2 to f/5.6 with an amazing 3-D like quality that has to be seen to be believed. The fit and finish are first class, with a nice feel and balance to it. It uses 77mm filters like most other Nikon pro glass and flares quite easily so be sure to use the included metal lens hood.

Do you know how this is different from the Nikkor 85mm f/1.4G AF-S lens?

New one doesn't have aperture ring, is sharper and more contrasty wide open, has plastic reversible hood instead of metal non-reversible hood, has AF-S motor, and is more $$$.
