Nikon 85mm 1.4G auto focus speed
Dec 1, 2012

I'm interested in this lens but somebody told me that the focus speed is frustratingly slow compared to the HSM in the Sigma counterpart. For those who have used this lens for portraits, do you think AF speed is an issue ?

I have read nothing but good reviews about this lens and it's the fist time I hear somebody say something negative. I'm rooting for the Nikon over the Sigma but I just want to be certain that AF speed will not be an issue before I make up my mind. Thanks.
