  • 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.

Новинка заменила собой легендарную 85-ку f/1.4D, которая многие годы дарила безупречное качество изображения и море позитивных эмоций как фотографам, так и тем, кто оказывался запечатлённым на снимке.

  • Excerpt: Seria Rainier zawiera najlepsze i najdroższe lornetki w ofercie firmy Alpen Optics. Obejmuje ona modele 8x32, 10x32, 8x42 i 10x42 - wszystkie z pryzmatami dachowymi Schmidta-Pechana ze szkła BaK-4, w których na powierzchnię odbijającą nałożono 60 warstw powłok metalicznych SHR, co ma zminimalizować straty światła do około 1%. Dodatkowo pryzmaty te zawierają powłokę fazową PXA.
  • Pros: bardzo solidna obudowa,, dobra transmisja,, dobre odwzorowanie bieli,, dobre i idealnie zgodne ze specyfikacjami pole widzenia,, rewelacyjnie korygowana dystorsja,, niewielki astygmatyzm,, mała koma,, niewielkie pociemnienie obrazu na brzegu pola,, obraz ostry już od niespełna 1 metra,, wysokiej klasy pryzmaty i powłoki,, wieczysta gwarancja.
  • Cons: wyraźnie pościnane źrenice,, trochę za duża waga jak na klasę 32 mm.
