Very, very good? Yes! Incredible? No, if you consider its price tag and the fact that the picture was shot at F8. For example my Zeiss 35/2 is at least as sharp by F/5.6... and it costs nearly half.

Yes, but it's 35mm and f2 not 24mm and f1.4.

Ok, then if you are taking picture at f8, what is the point of a f1.4 lens? Its application is not for this type of day light pictures but for low light photography. Nikon is not fool to think that people will use a lens at f1.4 in day time.

So, are you suggesting that Nikon designed the lens to only be used in low-light situations, and that one should buy a different lens for this type of photography? That a ~$2,000 lens is one-dimensional and only to be used for a certain type of photography? That such a lens shouldn't be just as spectacular at f/8 as it is at f/1.4, probably even more so?
