85mm 1.8G - watch out for flares and ghosting!
Mar 7, 2012

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).
