Shot a little comparison of two Canon 85's.
Top one is my 1.8.
Bottom one is rented 1.4.
Focused on the football and the helmet.
I'm old, I just don't see a great difference in the two. Not for the price difference.;-)a

You'd probably see more of a difference if there was more room between your subject and the background, but I'm still not sure if it's worth the price differential. The bragging rights would be satisfying, but I don't have a big problem with the image quality of the 85mm f/1.8. It has been a very good lens for my purposes.
