Nikon 58mm f/1.4G lens tested at DxOMark

DxOMark published their test results for the Nikkor 58mm f/1.4G lens ($1,696.95):

“The original Noct-Nikkor was designed for a different era, and while this new lens shares the same focal length as that model that is the only real similarity. Nikon must be applauded for producing a high-speed standard lens with such low levels of chromatic aberration and vignetting at full aperture. Sharpness is a little low wide open but it is a desirable trait for certain genres, particularly portraiture, where this lens will serve double duty as a short tele on a DX (APS-C) body. Stopped down this lens is very sharp centrally, but at $1,700, it’s a huge premium to pay over the firm’s existing AF-S Nikkor 50mm f1.4 G.”
