    Yes, I saw too. The one in the bridge picture is quite obvious.
    With the premium price tag given, even the AF-S version can't handle the Ca well.


    So, is this lens worthed to break your piggy bank ?

    i called up a few places like SLR and MS.
    the old afd is still around 1.8K, not a huge diff compare to the new one.
    well i dont think the price will go down any sooner.

    - Some people like mute colour.

    - Some people like warm colour.

    Actually my concern is not about the colour (as I shoot in RAW), but the sharpness.
    The sharpness of AF-S is so good.

    A quick review from my perspective.

    This is my first 85mm f1.4. AF-S is not speedy...as this lens is not built for sports. For shooting portraits and street, it is good enough. I tried AF-S on my S5Pro, it is accurate in the AF. Color wise, I like the natural colour rendered on S5Pro, not too warm neither is it 'cool'.

    CA, not totally gone. But it is a significant improvement over AFD (I am doing a comparison based on the 50mm f/1.4D, which I have.)

    Solid build!

    Bokeh, what can I say....

    Last pointer, I think many of you may have miss the point on doing videography on DSLR, the AF-S is important in this aspect. As AF-D would gives out loud zipping sound which would be recorded into the video. So AFS is crucial.

    I was offered S$2,130 at iPhoto. But I think lunas got a better price!

    Tested this lens during nikon kopi session. Seems like the AF is accurate at long distance but only if the AF point is at the center. Anyone experienced this?
