Please educate me on my first D600 lens
Oct 1, 2012

Hello guys, I've always wanted a 85mm prime lens and I'm going to be getting the D600 soon.

I've began my research (and I'm very limited in knowledge since I'm coming from m43) and noticed that 85 1.4 is a great lens for Nikon. On Amazon there's two choices... looks like there's the newer AF-S 1.4 w/ the nano-coating and an older 1.4D?

From what I gathered the D stopped production in 2006... and from one review I've read it may be better suited for portriats because of softness at the edges?

Is there anybody who has had experience w/ both? Personally... I would like to save money, but even more so, I want image quality over "technologies"

Plus.. I kind of like the black and white consistency of the lens vs. the gold
