Nikon 58mm f/1.4G AF-S Nikkor

Screen_Shot_2013-11-14_at_10_59_54_AM
Review Date: Jan 25, 2014 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $1,700.00 | Rating: 8 

 
Pros: Tones, color capture are beautiful in low light and challenging lighting situations.
Cons:
There are some chromatic aberrations when shooting in backlit situations in the daytime. They could have added a couple of ED elements in there. But, then, the lens would be heavier and the light transmission may be reduced and they have to make the lens physically wider.

Pros: Excellent color correction. The Nikkor 70-200mm/2.8VR2 and the 200mm/2VR2 are close but a zoom cannot match the resolution of a prime and the 200mm/2VR2 is very heavy.
Cons:
Lens cap be be improved.
