Lensrentals published their MTF bench tests for the Nikon AF-S Nikkor 105mm f/1.4E ED lens. Their conclusion:

"The optical bench confirms very nicely what the early reviews have said: this is an exceptionally sharp lens edge-to-edge. Optically, it’s probably the best thing Nikon has put out in several years; it’s a genuinely world-class optic. It’s not inexpensive, but it is less expensive than a lot of other lenses that have optical quality like this."

Here are the charts from the 105mm f/1.4 compared with several different lenses:

Nikkor 85mm f/1.4G ($1,596.95) vs. Nikkor 105mm f/1.4E ED ($2,196.95):
