Terrific review. To me, you're gonna upset a lot of 58 1.4G owners but so be it. Looks like a Sigma for me.

If they survived the Lenstip review (it was brutal), they'll survive this too. It has really nice bokeh, but pricing is just off when you factor in everything.

Maybe, but if you read this review to the end, one could deduce that the great bokeh has a lot to do with the lack of sharpness.... and the other lenses score relatively well in bokeh. Regarding the 58 he says:

"...When you compare in a standardized and adjusted setting, as in: compensating for the focal length, the NIkkor 58/1.4G is not overall “creamier” than the rest. It is at f/1.4, but only slightestly. However, from f/2.8 on, it looks just like the other Nikkors."
