The out of focus areas of the samples shot at f/4 look really bad - I would call it "smeary". That's in comparison to the Canon lens. The f/4 shots also show poor handling of the color - especially in the slightly OOF areas.

I think a lens in this focal length range might need a fluorite element to fix the color and bokeh. Doesn't Nikon use fluorite?
