First of all i want to say how much I enjoyed reading your articles.
I guess you are the first reviewer putting the 35mm cameras and midsize sensor cameras well in perspective. That the lenses are usually a weak point (except with Leica) is also interesting. and that Live View is a necessity is obvious for me trying to get 24MP out of my Nikon.
I have a request about the 35mm 1,4 Nikkor test. Could you add a page with 1,4 shots only so it is more obvious what the sharp unsharp combination looks like. I would prefer it with subjects at various distances so you clearly see at what point you still can isolate a subject.
DIGLLOYD: I intend more work on my Nikon 35mm f/1.4G review, especially many more examples. I am waiting for a replacement lens from B&H Photo, having sent mine back due to the asymmetry I show on the comparison page (see right/left crops). I want and in this case need a copy as close to perfect as possible, as a reference lens, since in my view the new Nikon 35/1.4G is the best wide angle yet designed by Nikon, albeit one that could not autofocus properly (still waiting for a response from Nikon on that). My Nikon D3x is also in for a full service check and verification, so that when I resume testing I can state clearly that the D3x meets all Nikon specifications. Also, I do plan on comparing the Nikon 35mm f/1.4G to the Zeiss 35mm f/1.4 Distagon, which should arrive soon.
