Seriously, Nikon; six TIMES the price for AF and a tad better body??!

  2. Some reviewers have claimed it to be sharper than the Nikon from f1.4
    to f4, after which the Nikon sharpens up more. That suggests the Nikon
    may have better lens surface finish but poorer control of the
    spherical aberration which softens wider apertures.

  3. Af is pretty important for me. I converted to Nikon AF in 1994 based
    on tests showing me I got a lot more good photos that way. And
    since then, I've gotten old enough to need reading glasses; I don't
    think my manual focus skills are better today, so I really need AF.

    (Using a Nikkor 85/1.8 AF, not even the AF-D; quite a usable
    compromise for me.)
