A few more AF-S 85mm f1.4 G samples
Aug 28, 2010

These 5 images by Nikon product manager Lindsay Silverman have been discussed before:

I for one was not impressed (at all) by the quality of the bokeh. But apparently opinions on that differ.

Here are a few more samples by Nikon product manager Lindsay Silverman, taken with the Nikkor AF-S 85mm f1.4 G on a full frame Nikon DSLR:

Awful bokeh in this picture.

Bokeh where you start to see things double... quite dizzying to me.

Can it have something to do with Silverman's conversion/post processing I wonder? Is that possible at all, to this extent?

Other sample images (post processed), that some may not have seen yet:

It looks to me like the new 85mm f1.4 has smooth bokeh in the foreground, and less smooth bokeh in the background, like the Nikon AF-S 24mm f1.4 G shows.
