Nikon 50 1.4G small review


I am sorry to post no pictures but they will come. I just received the lens and made a few shots and I am really impressed!

I have the 50 1.8 and 55 1.2 and 85 1.4 to compare.

My first suprise was the sharpness at 1.4. It is really great and much better than the lenses above stated.

Also is the Bokeh really really good IMO. The 85 may be a little better but there is really nothing to complain.

Another point which really surprised me with the D700. WB and metering work much better with this lens than with any other lens. Not sure why but it is spot on when I set everything on auto.

The AF is a little slower but much more accurate.

I love this lens and I am happy that I bought it.
