Summary: The only thing not to like about this lens is its high price, even though the added cost does bring genuinely improved performance. A mark has been deducted from the overall Performance figure for the trace of chromatic aberration at f/1.4 and for marginally less ‘bite' than was expected in real-world images, but this is an admittedly harsh judgement on so fine a lens.
Excerpt: Nikon's flagship wide aperture portrait lens receives a facelift, gaining a silent-wave focusing motor and Nano Crystal Coatings to reduce ghosting and flare. Here, Gary Wolstenholme takes a look at how it performs.
Pros: Good resolution performance, Beautiful out of focus blur, Excellent build quality, Negligible levels of CA, Good resistance to flare and ghosting
Cons: Maybe a touch pricey, but you get what you pay for
