He is a Nikon troll who don't have a clue. Obviousely you test both lens at comparable F stops.

WHAT????? Two different lenses used at the same f-stop will be comparable? You mean at f/5.6 or f/8, a 55-200 zoom, zoomed at 85mm will produce the same quality of image as the premier 85/1.2 at f/5.6-f/8?

To the OP... thank you for the hard work and keeping up with all the critics. As for the Nikon 85/1.8G, its AF speed has been criticized by experienced Nikon users. "Initially the first thing I noticed is that the AF speed on the G is definitely slower than the D. AF accuracy is about the same."

Anyway, you are doing the best you can with the tools you have. From what you have posted, I don't think anyone can distinguish between images by the two cameras in a blind test.

Thank you.
