I think Nikon has prioritized bokeh rendition in 35mm f1.4, 58mm f1.4 and 85mm f1.4. This may explain why Nikon has chosen to:

1) Avoid close range correction

2) Retain spherical aberration (hence haziness) at close focus distances

3) Not correct longitudinal chromatic aberration

4) Not go for a completely flat field

I think a combination of all these factors gives you nice bokeh, but the price is that at close or medium distances the lens will not be as sharp as others that have prioritized sharpness
