CA issues with the 85mm are real, but do vary with samples. I think mine does pretty well, but my new 50mm 1.8G has loads of it.


The Nikon 85 f1.8 I had was rabid with LOCA, So much so I couldn't live with it. Appaling, I was super surprised given the A+++++ rating most people gave it. Couldn't wait to see the back end of it.

Does anyone have samples of the CA?  How bad is it?  Does the CA removal tool in Lightroom fix it?

Recent dad here, thinking of getting this lens to put on my D800.  I don't have a 70-200, but I do have a 105VR and 50/1.8, I think adding an 85/1.8 would be great for shots of the kids, especially indoors.
