Slow lens. :(

Rachel E. Lusky "Photographer & Designer", Amazon

  • Summary: I want to love this lens but it seems slower then my 50mm 1.4G. And it was so MUCH more expensive. I may be returning it if I can't get it to work with my system :( I missed a few key shots at a tough family session because it could not focus in on time.

Huge field curvature

  • Summary: I tested this lens on the Nikon D800. The lens is super sharp, but was designed with a huge amount of field curvature. This means that for landscapes/cityscapes and other far-away subjects, you have to stop down to past f/8.0 to get sharp edges on the D800. This is a lens designed for being used wide open at close range - important to know if you plan to use the lens for another use. I think it's pricey for what you get at current Amazon prices.

Nice but not perfect

Mate Zemljic, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: I use this lens very often, and in real life photos, it's flawless. It is sharp @ f/1,4 But... Slow and noisy AF with huge barrel distortion is huge disappointment! I am not pixel counter, I will rather photograph my kid and make nice memories instead of waste my precious time by counting technical flaws of the lens.
  • Pros: Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Nice OOF rendering
  • Cons: Huge barrel distortion, Slow Focus

  • Excerpt: 35 мм 1.4 на ФФ это очень приятное и удобное фокусное. Его всем рекомендую. Но мой экземпляр не хочет дружить с Д700. Фокус ведет себя непредсказуемо, резкости на 1.4 мало. Очень жалею что купил его за 1800$ а не аналогичную сигму за 900$.
  • Pros: +Конструктив +Микроконтраст +Отлично держит контровый +Пыле-влаго защита +Рабочая 1.4 +Умеренная скорость фокусировки +Размеры\вес
  • Cons: -Непредсказуемый фокус на моем Д700 -Мыльный на открытой на 1.4 на моем Д700 -Много пластика в конструкции -Цена
