Re: fine tuned

Your opening quote in the OP was "The G model is fine tuned for digital, but the 85/1.4D paints with a vintage brush that delights my Old School sensibilities." I would disagree with the interpretation that the 85 f/1.4G is "fine tuned for digital" - I simply think it's an improved design

It's not my interpretation, Ray. Quoting from the description of the 85/1.4G on the Nikon USA site...

"The AF-S NIKKOR 85mm f/1.4G is an advanced lens, optimized for today’s D-SLR and HD-SLR cameras."

I'm pretty sure that "fine tuned" and "optimized" mean the same thing.

Final word from me. All I said is that I like the vintage renderings of the 85/1.4D, not that it was better than your optimized 85/1.4G. There was no need to be defensive.
