    Re: 50 1.8G or 85 1.8G

    I had looked at the 300mm f4 AF-S but rulled it out due to size/weight.
    Thats a pity your 300mm PF is starting to have issues.

    I also looked at older manual Nikon lenses as there seems to be plenty of good bargains about and I don't have an issue using a manual lens. Having said that I decided against it after learning that several contain Thorium. I realise there is a case that you would have to use these an awful lot to even come close to the amount of radiation that would be a similar exposure to an standard xray, but it is the thought that puts me off.
    Another issue is that I have came across is that there lists that are supposed to contain all these Thorium lenses, only to find other ones listed elsewhere that are not included in the original list. If there was a difinitive list then I might take another look at non Thorium manual lenses.

    I decided on the Nikon 85 1.8G and I am delighted with the bokeh and colour this lens produces. Just a couple from my local park as we are currently in a lockdown situation due to covid and unable to travel far.

    Congrats on making your choice. The 85mm f/1.8G offers incredible bokeh plus it is lightweight.

    Stay safe over there in the UK and have fun with your new lens!
