Re: Nikon AF-S 85mm f/1.4 lens not so hot.

I have now posted a couple of images which do show the 1.8 as being sharper and in actual fact (you'll just have to trust me) more colour neutral. I have concentrated on sharpness as this is what Lance has objected to so strongly. It's not the best test subject, but it does illustrate my point, so you're welcome to retract your "zero substance" comment whenever you like.

Each to their own ... I, for one, appreciated MisterHairy's real life comparison and don't see it as an attention seeking (or whatever else you called it) thread.

What did you appreciate about it? As Lance has pointed out, the OP stated a number of things that fly in the face of every review available from a credible source.

His general tone and even thread title seem clearly aimed at getting attention. I personally wouldn't have bothered with this thread if it were yet another "85/1.8G = great value!!!!". However, as the thread title contradicts everything I've read about the 85/1.4G, I felt intrigued. Turns out that I probably should have just ignored it as there's zero substance to the claims being made.
