  • Excerpt: While I hope to create a full Nikon 85mm f/1.4G AF-S Lens evaluation, my first priority is to include results from this lens in the lens comparison tools. This page currently exists because it is required by the database and content management systems for the posting of those standard test results.

  • Excerpt: Even two years ago the suggestions about refreshing the whole shorter prime lenses’ line-up were among wishes the most often made when it came to the launches of new Nikon instruments. True, Nikon had some problems there. Older classic devices didn’t feature their own autofocus motors and were powered by a device so-called “screwdriver”. The trouble was the simplest reflex cameras on the company’s offer lacked it.
  • Cons: significant vignetting on full frame,, a bit too high coma in full frame corners,, distinct longitudinal chromatic aberration.

  • Summary: Chcąc być jednak nie tylko złośliwym, ale uczciwym, trzeba dodać kilka innych rzeczy. Po lekkim nawet przymknięciu Nikkor jest wyraźnie ostrzejszy od Samyanga, a także Zeissa. Na brzegu kadru prezentuje zaś ostrość niedostępną żadnej testowanej przez nas 85-tce z drogim Canonem 85L włącznie. Słabszy stopień korygowania komy nadrabia z ogromną nawiązką rewelacyjną korektą astygmatyzmu.
  • Pros: wysoka jakość wykonania,, świetna jakość obrazu w centrum kadru,, bardzo dobra jakość obrazu na brzegu kadru i to nawet na pełnej klatce,, niewielka poprzeczna aberracja chromatyczna,, znikoma dystorsja,, koma dobrze korygowana w rogach matrycy APS-C/DX,, rewelacyjnie korygowany astygmatyzm,, niewielkie winietowanie na matrycy APS-C/DX,, dość dobra praca pod ostre światło,, szybki, cichy i celny autofokus.
  • Cons: spore winietowanie na pełnej klatce,, koma w rogach pełnej klatki jest trochę za duża,, wyraźna podłużna aberracja chromatyczna.
