Seriously, I love it. I received it on 11/6/2015 and just happened to have a Senior session scheduled for a soccer player. At f/1.6 I was shooting full bodies w/ him about 15 yards from the net and it was REALLY blowing it out. I knew this thing was a bokeh machine, but I seriously didnt realize it was THIS much of a bokeh machine.
Words cant do it justice. Seeing other peoples photos taken with it cant do it justice. You truly need to throw it on your camera and shoot the way you normally would, and see how much this thing transforms your work to appreciate how good this lens is. This thing is worth every penny I paid for it.
This is my go to Lens. I only switch to my 35 mm 1.4 only if I am inside or if I want to try photograph more landscape or urban-scape.
Both lens are tack sharp (If picture was bad I found usually it was my fault). Both lens render beautiful skin colors and 3D like pictures. Being the new design 85g has more contrast & saturation than the 105DC (depends on the scene sometimes I choose 105DC for its subtlety). When shoot against sun 85mm is noticeably better (Nano coating) than 105DC.
85mm is well built and balance well on F5 and D700. It is fatter lens but feels pretty good in hand. After brief use, I noticed large debris appear inside the lens elements and figured that was because the internal lens movement for focusing , which pumps air and thus trapped the debris in (105DC has some debris too). Was a bit of surprise since 85 1.4g has weather seal design while 105DC does not. No big deal. I am very happy about the pictures and capability it provides . Yes compared to 85 1.8g the big brother shows diminished returns (not necessary three times better from what I read). I bought 1.4g before 1.8g rumors surfaced on internet. Nevertheless, this is a keeper and compliment very well with 105DC.
***Update***: I have been using this lens for 2+ years as all around lens. It proved to be very versatile for not just a gold standard portrait lens but also a great lens for street and landscape application. I like the size, weight and confidence provided by this 85g. This lens is on my camera most of time and has produced many satisfactory pictures that received high praises from family and friends. it worked so well for film (Velvia 50, Provia 100, Kodak Gold), digital (D700/D750) and video (D750). On the side note I found my photographic skills have improved gradually with years of experience on prime lens. I still do not own zoom lens (I admit I have always been tempted to grab 14-24 and 70-200 vrii) and found these prime lens (85g, 24g, 105DC and 50g) meet all of my current photographic needs. Highly recommended!
