Agreed! OP must have a bad copy.

I have had many Nikon lenses including the holy trinity, 85mm 1.4D, 35mm 1.4 50 afs 1.4.

The sharpest lens as I have had and still have is the 85mm 1.8G

Really a remarkable lens! I did like the 85mm 1.4D, but the 85mm 1.8G is sharper and have smooth bokeh as well. Not better than the D version, but close.

A sample, wide open, not full size, but right eye is tack sharp.
