What's the worst (F-mount) lens you actually own?
Dec 29, 2013

Since we always talk about which is the best lens... Just to make something a little different let's talk about the worst lenses.

The actual worst lens I own now is the Nikkor 50mm F/1.4 G

Wide open performance sucks: soft, lack of contrast, loads of CA, harsh bokeh. It improves a bit by stopping it to F2 but it becomes good only at 2.8 and after. My personal copy also suffers from a hefty focus shift when stopping down. Without a doubt it's the worst of the 5 prime lenses I currently own (see my gear list)

What's the worst/less loved lens in your arsenal and why?
