Good results with the 58 1.4G on a D800???
May 1, 2014

After much resistance, I ordered a 58mm 1.4G. Just could not deny the stunning photographs I have seen posted by users of the lens.

Of course as I wait for the Fedex truck to arrive, I am having buyer anxiety big time. Last night I read over all of the reviews I had originally looked at, and confirmed my decision to buy this lens. I know about its weaknesses and strengths. I have several high resolving, super sharp at wide aperture lenses. What I want with this one is character.

One point that I need clarification on is the lens performance on a D800. There are several reviewers who point out its strengths on a DF. This may partly be because they already have a DF, and are looking for some good things to write about it!

I realize that many D800 owners get the reps as full time pixel peepers, and that this is one lens that does not encourage pixel peeping, but I can't see why the same lovely character one gets using it on a DF, or a D4, won't  also be apparent on a D800. Anyone out there with experience using this lens on a D800?
