Well, my experience and conclusions certainly differ. D800 body.

$500: 85 f1.8G...stellar. None of the CA some speak of here. Better at f2 than the 85 f1.4G. Light weight, non-intimidating, etc.

Here's why I sent my 85 1.8 back. Not that good a photo. But the focus point roughly on the front edge of the saw horse. Look at the top left side. The LOCA is awful Green edges everywhere. IMO unacceptable. Needs to be an APO style lens to fix this.

That is a bad copy of the lens. Mine does not behave like that. It happens.
