We will only care or believe you if you post pictures with it.

What we would like you to do is:

1. Busy background bokeh test
2. Sharpness in center test and a 100% crop of it
3. Sharpness at edge test and 100% crop of it
4. A breakdown of AF speed.

I heard they got them in today but I still bought the 1.4 version from there earlier. I'd get a 1.2 if Nikon had it.

Thanks.

From that article:
There are hard stops at both ends of the range, making it easy to set focus at infinity.

Do AF-S lenses really have hard stops? Do they mean hitting the limiter before the clutch slips? I don't know if I would rely on that for finding infinity.

None AF-S really have a hard stop. This is surprise than Nikon made 85/1.8 G this way. Good news.

Hard stop requires calibration and calibration requires extra costs. It was always a riddle why manufacturers did not apply that fundamental feature to their expensive professional lenses.
