I'll take some photos with the 85mm f/1.5 Nikkor in the next few days and you can compare it yourself. My impression is that it is an extremely sharp lens and something special. I'm figuring out what to take to Japan in a couple of weeks. I don't want to go overboard. I'll be taking care of my young kids, the heat is going to be murderous, and I don't want to worry about too much equipment, especially rare lenses. But I'd like to take a few. I want to shoot the Nikon museum with historic Nikkor lenses.
