I'm not surprised

When I saw the nighttime aerial sample of Tokyo in Nikon's early marketing of the lens, I thought, "Uh Oh".  For a lens that's supposed to control coma, it was rendering things like street lights in a way that clearly disqualified it for NOCT-style use in things like night or astrophotography.  A lot of coma on those lights.  You'd have been better off with the new 50/1.8.

As a portrait or movie lens, the samples suggest to me that it has a lot of potential and character.  But it isn't a NOCT replacement and shouldn't be presented as such.
