Thanks a lot! This lens/sensor combo needs way more sharpening than Sigma 18-35 + D7200. I mostly use C1 0.2 radius in a bit lower than in the middle of "amount" slider. It looks like best results with D750 OLPF are in 0.5 radius and a bit higher than middle of "amount" slider. But the bonus is that the picture is smooth with no noise, false colors or moire. I actually thought that edges of the frame will be way sharper.

I downloaded both images from the beach, which were taken with the old 35mm f/2D lens. IMO the recent 35mm f/1.8G is way better than the old 35mm f/2D.

So both images from the garden are taken with 35 1.8? The problem is that only the center 5% part is within DOF and that part is of course pretty sharp. Either way, thanks a lot!

I just now looked at the garden images but no, they were also shot with the 35mm f/2D. My guess is rpps misread your post due to the mention of 'ED' in the title. The common name of the latest f/1.8 primes is 'XXmm f/1.8G'.

Meanwhile, look at this post with equally processed and equivalent images from D750 (with 50mm f/1.4G) and D7200 (with 35mm/1.8G):

While I have two D750 cameras and one D7200 (recently added a second hand D5200 for a dedicated purpose) I'm not sure there's a compelling reason to buy a D750 vs a D7200 as a stopgap solution. Wondering what you're waiting for but pray tell...

There is also a DX version of 35 1.8G, but only one ED version with that F number. But as I've said, I want to compare this lens to my current rig with my current RAW converter. I know how it behaves after 40k photos from the last 8 months.

I think that it's time to move to FF for some more AF accuracy, DR and DOF control with a bigger viewfinder. I would like to go to the mirrorless from DSLR but I can actually move to future mirrorless Z bodies with DSLR lenses via FTZ adapter that works fine. I actually was pretty sure that it will not but NIkon made a good job with it. As it appears though Z6/7 is a first gen product and in 3 years we'll have mkii version that will be more usable. And for the price of Z6 alone I can buy D750 and 35+85 1.8. Looks like a bargain to me. I don't think that it's a good idea to use my D7200 for three more years cause I'm tired a bit with DX small viewfinder and with Sigma 18-35 ART AF quirks. But I don't want to loose the brilliant IQ that it gives.
