Re: Close focus and normal distance samples

I added several more photos in city-scape situation to my Nikon 58mm f/1.4G album. Images are not post-processed unless the description says so (only the last two photos with leaves are post-processed)

I added a few more photos to my Leica Summicron 50mm f/2 album too for the sake of comparison.

I think Nikon 58mm f/1.4G's is soft at wide-open regardless of the focus distance. But it's not too bad if you can increase the contrast to blow off the halo. On the positive side, bokeh is always great, and the color contrast seems to be good, too. The lens feels very light and is suitable for street shooting in my opinion.
