Reviews and Problems with Nikon 85mm f/1.4G AF-S NIKKOR

OMG Chromatic Aberration.
31 July 2013
Summary: I bought this lens just before a working trip to Italy. I was to do a shoot of a model at a vineyard in Tuscany. There were to be shots both inside the bodega, the facilities and in the countryside. I normally use the Nikon 70-200/f2.8 in this kind of situation, but I wanted this lens because I'm not always happy with the performance of the 70-200 (I'm not in love with the bokeh). I also went with the Nikon 24-70/2.8 and the Sigma 35/1.4 (which performed brilliantly).
Summary: I tried both of Nikon's 85mm lenses -- the 85mm 1.4G (this lens) and the older 85mm 1.4D -- on a D700 (FX). I returned the G, kept the D. In one review of the G, the reviewer mentioned finding a sombrero pattern near the center of the image; I didn't take measurements to confirm this aberration, but there is something odd about the geometry of images taken with the G.
Summary: Just returned my order. It needed +20 focus adjustment to get a reasonable sharpness on my D3S, which is too much for its reputation. Maybe it's a bad copy. I'll order a new one when available.
