Extremely soft focus
I have been disappointed from the moment I got it. My 85 1.8 is much sharper and the focus is better. I thought I was upgrading, but now regret it. I could have bought a lens I didn't have at all, in any aperture.
I love this lens, and it is my main portrait lens now. I had been having problems with 3rd party lenses auto focusing not working as accurately as I would like them to on my D850. It's defiantly worth the extra money to get name brand lens with high megapixels cameras! My only drawback on this lens is that it has heavy chromatic aberration. Maybe its just me, or this particular lens?
