My 58mm f1.4 review (on Df and D4). Shots and experience in the field, not test chart review.

Nice photos in the review!

I don't think much of the Nikon crowd knows how to handle a lens that is very specific in its rendering and application at a given focal length. Every lens gets compared for a certain set of tests and everyone wants a winner. The Leica crowd seems to more readily accept that it may make sense to own multiple lenses at a given focal length.

Your 2-3 lens setup is similar to what I've moved to since getting back into Nikon gear:

D4s with 14-24, 58, 105 Macro
RX1 at 35

I should soon be adding the 200 f2 and I'll be pretty well set.
