The sharpness slowly fades off towards the edges, which only helps give that 3D look.
If I want to have more in focus, I can bump my aperture up and then this lens starts to become pretty sharp edge to edge.
It wasn’t sharp wide open, and not knowing the focus distance, I couldn’t focus as close as I wanted to.
Lesson learned, never throw an untested lens into a shoot and expect that it will perform flawlessly.
I swapped lenses briefly on the Nikon Df and then put the 58mm back on. I set it back up to fine tune the AF and now it needed to be at 4.
It has shot flawlessly since, but I need to figure out whether this is an issue with the Nikon Df or the lens.
The barrel is a little thicker than that of the Nikon 50mm f/1.4G, and is just as wide as the Nikon 85mm f/1.4G, but I still wouldn’t say that it’s a large lens by any means.
I will update my blog with the test results when I have the time to test this.The front element is buried deep down in its all plastic shell, much deeper and smaller than I expected it to be.My early frustrations with this lens honestly stemmed from my own mistakes i.e.I got so frustrated with its performance, and its unsharp images, that I switched it out with my trustworthy Sigma 50mm f/1.4. For me, the flaws are what I love so much about it. No, it’s not crazy sharp wide open, but I’m willing to give that up for it’s extremely shallow depth of field, subject separation, and awesome bokeh.The Nikon 58mm 1.4G is sharp, and very sharp, at the point of focus when shot wide open.

Once the shoot was over, I threw it on a tripod and set up my lens calibration kit.
