photominion: Can someone tell me how it is that people are willing to spend 3'000-4'000 $ for a camera body that is technically obsolete after 2 years and are NOT ever going to be willing to spend 4 grand on a lens that will last them 10 to 20 years without it being qualitatively surpassed by any other in that time span?
Might be the same thing with ppl spending 4 grand on a flat screen Tv and then buying a 200$ "home theater surround system" even though audio components will last 20 years whereas the Tv value drops 50% per year..
Which combi delivers more resolution?
D700 with Otus 85mm orD800 with Nikkor 85 f 1.8?
The 4000$ body is much better than the 400$ body.
The 4000$ lens ist not significantly better than the 400$ lens
(btw: it has not even AF).
@ the testers of depreview
You should have focused manually with the Nikon 85 f1.8 also.
Then you would have recognized that there ist much less purple fringing with this lens wide open (in the focus plane!!) than your test picture shows.
Your combo (Nikon D810 with Nikkor 85 1.8) seems to have a slight back focus.
No reason to be concerned.
They are only splitting out "Video & Sound" and NOT "Imaging Products & Solutions" !

The rules still say (and everything else is unfair) that the picture must show the full sun.
Therefore every picture that does not show the full sun will only receive 0.5 stars from me.
