Give me a wake up call when they start making f/1.4 lenses for MF. In the meantime I'll keep enjoying my D810 with 20/1.8, 35/1.4, 58/1.4 and 105/1.4 lenses.

Photo_AK: What Nikon is basically admiting, is their photography department doesn't know how to produce anything else besides D-SLR cameras and lousy compacts.

Just imagine that ... Nikon doesn't have neither the money, nor the know-how to make and sell cameras, that are even not revolutionary, but based on the products that are present on the market for the last 5 years!

This just shows what a science-fiction product a digital SP rangefinder camera from Nikon is ...

Yeah, I know you know nothing and that's enough for me.

No, don't tell me?
The camera market is shrinking?
W-T-F, where did they hear that? Some news, I tell ya ...
(sarcasm off)

Where were these guys until now, sleeping under a barrel? It sure is too late now, they should've bring those DLs to the market three years ago!

In reply to:

JakeB: There's just a certain 'something' about those shots. An aura. A 'feeling.'

It would be ridiculous to suggest that any other manufacturer's camera/lens combinations costing a tenth of the price could create this 'look.'

It's almost like Leica sprinkled a little, well, let's call it 'pixie dust' into their cameras and lenses and that magic travels along the lens to the sensor and is captured along with the rays of light.

Or perhaps the sensor itself contains this pixie dust and thus imbues the image with the 'aura.'

No matter how it works, one can immediately spot this 'Leica look' that no other camera is capable of creating. It positively glows from each image.

Money well spent, I'd say.

Oh c'mon ... like kristof93 wrote - bullsh*t.

Photo_AK: "Innovation Award" to a 85/1.4 lens ... What's so innovative about it ... I mean there's at least 5 dozens of different 85/1.4 lenses and at least 2 dozens of those with AF ... High sharpness is not innovative, it's a must for today's high-res sensors!

Innovative is Nikon's 105/1.4 because it's the first and only AF lens with focal length above 100 mm and fast f/1.4 aperture. Heck, even Tamron's 85/1.8 is more innovative with it's VC function than this Sigma lens.

I think it's utterly inappropriate to call this lens innovative. It's a high quality lens and nothing more. Like many, many others.

Yes, looks like it.

And one more thing; actually it is exactly that - like many other. Just a bit better.
If it's the sharpest, then why didn't the Zeiss Otus 85/1.4 get the same award a year earlier? And btw, the latter still sports higher image quality than the Sigma!

"Definition of innovation
1: the introduction of something new
2: a new idea, method, or device : novelty"

105/1.4 NIKKOR fits the above description, Canon 11-24/4, Tamron 45/1.8 VC, PC NIKKOR 19/4E, Tokina 14-20/2, Sigma 24-35/2, etc ... not all introduced in 2016, but I hope you get the point.

Sigma 85/1.4 does not fit, it's not a novelty, it's just a high quality product, (supposedly) the best of a large group of similar products.

In reply to:

noflashplease: Just how much cost cutting is acceptable in a $2,200 lens? For this price, I'd expect a ring ultrasonic motor, not a geared micromotor. The rest of the build looks cheap and old fashioned as well. This is what I'd expect from bargain bin 3rd party lens of yesteryear, not a Nikkor at this price level.

"It is slow, noisy, and harsh visually... "

Sounds just like you ...

First comment, yeah :) Don't care 'bout the lens, though ...
