Nikon AF-S Nikkor 58mm f/1.4G Review

Sharpness at 58mm

The sharpness tests for this review were carried out using a real-world subject rather than a test chart. The Nikkor 58mm f1.4 lens was attached to a Nikon Df body, which in turn was mounted on a sturdy tripod. Exposure Delay Mode was activated. Slight tonal changes are due to slight changes in natural light during the session.

The lens is soft wide open at f/1.4, not sharpening up until f/2.8 in the centre and f/4 at the edges. From f/2.8 through f/11 in the centre, sharpness is outstanding, and f/16 is only slightly worse.
