Excerpt: BAD QUALITY CONTROL NIKON, UNPACK THE LENS AND MAKE TESTS AND UNFORTUNATELY THE LENS WAS A SERIOUS PROBLEM FOCUS BACK, BUT WHAT ABOUT NIKON ALSO KNEW THAT HAD THE PROBLEM WITH CAMERAS D600 BUT IS IMPORTANT TO IMPROVE ITS CONTROL SYSTEMS QUALITY I AM VERY SAD AND dISAPPOINTED, RETURN THE LENS A B & H ALL THAT SUCCESSFULLY RESOLVED AS ALWAYS. I HOPE TO HEAR FROM NIKON AS WAS very excited about this lens.
Summary: There are many rave review of this lens out there, and when it does hit its target, the image is beautiful. However, the focus mechanism is somewhat faulty. I'm getting a success rate of about 30-40%. The rest of the images are all out of focus. I tried my copy on 3 D700's and still had the focusing problem. I even locked down my camera on a tripod, thinking that maybe it was user error or shaky hands, but no...the focusing does have problem, images come out of focus.
Excerpt: Yes, this lens could produce stunning results due to its exceptional optical performance. If there were no problems with the autofocus. I tried two copies of this lens (both imported versions at B&H) and could not believe what I saw. I was not able to produce even one sharp image at f1.4 and distances beyond let´s say 100 ft. At infinity the autofocus did not work at all. I am not nitpicking here and talking about some softness. The images were definitely blurred.
Pros: Durable, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
Autofokus-Problem an D90. Fokuspunkt liegt jedesmal zu weit hinten
19 January 2011
Summary: In der Hoffnung, dieses Objektiv würde an meiner Kamera keinen Ärger machen, da ich noch drei andere Objektive völlig ohne Front- und Backfokus-Probleme betreibe, habe ich es mir für meine D90 gekauft. Doch leider ist jedes Foto mit einem Backfokus behaftet, das heisst, der anvisierte Fokuspunkt liegt zuweit hinten.
