This is one of the most anticipated lenses in the last several years. You can rest assured that as soon as it gets into some folks hands, they will start picking it up one side and down the other.

i dunno, the 85D is a good lens, i'd say the 24G was more highly-anticipated.

Re: Where?

in my gallery now , I actually wanted to compare it to my Zeiss but I did want Nikon lady to see I am not using Nikon lenses on my D700 and D3 and so I broght my 24-70 and compared it to the zoom.

in fact , the new G is sahrper than the D , I am pretty positive about it since I had the D in last year.

I was also impressed with the AFS28-300VR.

it was a good lens, I also tried the AFS24-120f4VR2 but I was not so impressed with it , the 24-70 is much better than this one.

Re: Where?

sorry for boring uncntrolled test samples but there was no way I could use my tripod , I actually shot some Nikon people but they asked me not post their faces on line , so I am sorry they are lousy.

Next time , I get better sampels at a big camera shop near my hotel here.

I think this can be a interesting lens for a lot of casual and travel shooting.

I think any other outcome would have caused a lot of surprise

Re: Sounds good

I was very impressed with the 24-120VR and not really with the 85G , the 85G is a great prime but at 1700 it must be a bit better than that at f1.4.

And at f1.4 , my Canon 85L2 is sharper and more predictable, at least the new Nikon 85 is better than old Nikon D or the Zeiss ZF2.

that said , I just ordred the new AFS85f1.4G because of its very relaible AF and small sized barrel with some sealing.

I know it is fatter than the old D but smaller , much smaller and lighter than my Canon L2.

The Nikon 85G is a great small prime ,with fast AF and very good build.

even at the cost of ultimate wide open sharpness , it is so impressively small .........if not shooting at f1.4 -1.6 all the time , the new 85G is a nobrainer, it will blow all other similar lenses.

It is insanely sharp from f1.8.

Now, I am sure I will sell my Zeiss 85f1.4ZF2 and 100f2.
And wait for new Nikon AFS135f2DC.

But I dont know if I ever sell the Canon 85L2 since it is the sharpest ever made lens at f1.4.
