D800 & 85mm 1.4G... I am impressed!

Yesterday I shot some charts to confirm that Nikon fixed the AF left issue my camera had. Yep! confirmed! Shot a similar chart I was shown at Nikon and there is no difference, left right, centre and AF vs LV all good!

To celebrate I decided to purchase a 85mm 1.4G. I bet this one will be my favourite in no time!

Went to the streets for about 2 hours to try my hand, shooting @ F1.4 with the D800. I am in love with the lens.

I read Ming's review ( http://blog.mingthein.com/2012/05/07/lens-review-the-nikon-af-s-851-4-g/ )about this lens on the D800 and I don't have a way to compare with other 85's nonetheless, I wanted a 1.4 and a lens to mach the build quality of my other lenses.

Here some pics, comments and advice are always welcome.
