Nikon 85mm f/1.8D AF Nikkor

1931NCP_180
Review Date: Mar 22, 2013 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $469.00 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Sharp as a tack wide open. Not AF-S, but still fast and quiet. Much better IQ than the F1.4 version and for less money.
Cons:

I only bought this lens based on a recommendation from a friend. Glad I did. It is always in my camera bag. Perfect for those pictures where a nice out of focus background is desired.

 
Sigma 35mm f/1.4 DG HSM A1

Review Date: Mar 22, 2013 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $899.00 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Image quality is excellent. Build is solid.
Cons:
AF tends to hunt wide open in low light, but focusing is fast and silent.

Without a doubt, the sharpest lens I own, or have ever owned. The lens set a new bench mark with DxO lens testing with no other lens coming close. Sigma has set a new standard for better quality at a comparatively lower price. I am in awe.
