This is something you read every now and then on the net. I've had mine for nine years now, starting on a D700, now on my D850, with all '8' iterations inbetween.

It's my most used lens, mainly (as all my primes) at f4.0, and I find it perfectly satisfactory, sharpnesswise and of course renderingwise.

Any other feelings? I it "too old, obsolete"? Is my eyesight failing?

Haven't you already answered your question? Since you find it perfectly satisfactory, I would suggest just ignore what anyone says.


Why ignore other opinions? I might actually learn something. Tbh, when first using the 35/1.4G, years ago, I thought it was plagued by hellish field curvature. Turned out it had more to do with accurate AF finetuning.

Anyway, I found some of the comments nuanced and useful, so thanks for that.

I'll play it first, and tell you what it is later
