Nikon HG 8x42 L DCF

23 February 2012
  • Conclusion: Like the Nikon HG 10x42, which fared very well in our big test of the 10x42 class, the 8x42 model impressed us as well. First of all its perfectly corrected, flat field of view, sharp to the very edge, caught our attention; what’s more, its distortion is low, the coma – moderate and the brightness loss – slight. A bit too high chromatic aberration on the border of that sharp field is the only reservation you can have here.
  • Pros: very solid casing,, good transmission,, perfectly sharp image across the whole field of view,, low chromatic aberration in the centre of the field of view,, very low astigmatism,, quite well corrected coma,, low brightness loss on the edge of the field,, low distortion,, very good whiteness rendering,, very wide gauge of eyepieces,, circular exit pupils,, high quality prism and anti-reflective coatings,, excellent darkening inside the binoculars.
  • Cons: a bit too high chromatic aberration on the edge of the field of view.

Nikkor AF-S 24mm f/1.4 G ED (FX) - Review / Test Report

photozone.de
30 April 2011
  • Conclusion: The Nikkor AF-S 24 f/1.4 is an impressive lens. At large apertures it produces very sharp images in the image center with somewhat soft corners wide open and stopped down it's sharp enough even for landscape work, although it's certainly not meant to be the primary choice for this kind of application. CAs are moderate on a full format DSLR. LoCAs are present at larger apertures but this is typical for such a fast prime.

photozone.de
14 November 2010
  • Conclusion: The Nikkor AF-S 24 f/1.4 is an impressive lens. At large apertures it produces very sharp images in the image center with somewhat soft corners wide open, but stopped down it shows very good to excellent sharpness across the whole (DX) frame. Distortion is very low and CAs are moderate. LoCAs are present at larger apertures but this is typical for such a fast prime. Vignetting is well under control for such a fast lens.
