85mm 1.8G - watch out for flares and ghosting!

The Polish lens review site optyczne.pl, while generally positive in its assessment of the lens, discovered it was very susceptible to flaring/ghosting, even with the sun tens of degrees to the side, see the samples on this page: http://www.optyczne.pl/257.9-Test_obiektywu-Nikon_Nikkor_AF-S_85_mm_f_1.8G__Odblaski.html and the 11th sample here: http://www.optyczne.pl/257.11-Test_obiektywu-Nikon_Nikkor_AF-S_85_mm_f_1.8G__Podsumowanie.html However, they tested it without the lens hood.

Some other problems they found: vignetting on FF, significant lateral chromatic aberrations, AF not particularly fast (takes almost a second from end to end of the distance scale).
