CA with 85mm

In my use I find the 50mm F1.8g a bit better than the 85mm F1.8g. It doesn't have any noticeable CA whereas the 85mm does. The 85mm though is very sharp.

28 is not wide enough for full frame.

A good Samyang 14mm F2.8, or Nikon 14-24mm would fill that gap. There is also Nikon 15mm F3.5.


yes, i did notice quite a bit of CA with the 85, too much for my liking to be honest. i do like the 15mm fisheye.
