    Cons: Auto focus tends to hunt a little to lock focus but this lens wasn't made for action.

    Pros: Value for money: How many of us wanted that 85 mm 1.4 but the price was ridiculous. Weight: This lens is a joy to use because of its size and weight. Image Quality: I was blown away with the IQ of this lens. My images looks so contrasty and the bokeh is so creamy.

    Summary: I am so happy with this lens for what I'm getting for the price. I don't even want to upgrade this lens albeit f/1.8 aperture. Even if sigma made an "art" 85 f/1.4 I don't think it will blow this affordable luxury lens out the water like the 35 mm and 50 mm from Nikon.

    Cons: A bit plasticy No stabilization Lots of chromatic aberration

    Pros: Superb shaprness and IQ

    Summary: One of the best lenses around. For DX cameras is a bit too long for general use (~130mm equiv).

    Cons: Wide open on the D800, the lens is a bit soft. The plastic finishing & cheap manufacturing versus what Nikon was capable to do in the past. Chromatic aberration in some circumstances

    Pros: Interesting Bokeh on FF.

    Summary: Add 200€ and give me the same lens with a sturdy, metal finishing + some minor optical improvements.

    Cons: I'd liked it to have 9 blades of course, but 7 rounded is ok.

    Pros: Awesome lens for flattering portraits and great for landscapes too. Sharpness is excellent, clearly better than the old 1.8D-version in the open end. Pleasant bokeh, contrast and colours. Only 350g and a delight to handle.

    Summary: This is my favorite lens on the D800. (I've never tried the 85/1.4G, though) The handling, weight and "feel" to this combination simply makes shooting a pure pleasure, and it provides fantastic IQ! A great-value nobrainer. Love it!
