Battle of 85/1.4s: Nikon AF-S G vs. Zeiss ZF.2

Dec 29, 2008
Los Angeles
The most comprehensive test was published at diglloyd's site, but he used the 85 1.4D - the G-version did not exist at that time. the 3rd lenshe used was the famous Canon 85 1.2.
other reviews can be found at and on DxO labs there are individual comparisons with different bodies possible.

From my personal pow, I like the Zeiss more than the Nikkors, but not from a ridicolous "point of sharpness view" but because of the colour rendition.
Thank you! I might have to re-subscribe to Lloyd's site if he added data for G, and thank you for reminding me that DXOmark now does lens tests.

Do you happen to have illustration of difference in rendition between Nikon and Zeiss?
