Excerpt: I have read all the reviews and talked with other photographers about this lens being the "money maker" but when it comes time to deliver, it does not. The slow focus in low light situations, common in weddings and during "magic hour" light, it failed to deliver sharp focus images.
Summary: The problem I had with this lens (on my D800E) is softness and CA at wide apertures (there is also a more minor issue of focus being hesitant). Stop it down to F2.8 and the problem is gone and the rendering of the lens is excellent. Unfortunately you don't buy a lens like this to be soft wide open.
Summary: An der D800 von Nikon gab es Probleme hinsichtlich der Schärfe und der AF-Geanuigkeit. Bei offener Blende (1.4) und Einstellung Unendlich ergab sich bei meiner D800 eine Schärfekorrektur von +12.
