From Ulysses in New York
I am a professional wedding and portrait photographer in New York. I *always* enjoy your articles about both Mac computers, as well as Nikon gear and lenses. Your thorough and logical approach is refreshing and enjoyable to read.
I wanted to comment on your article comparing the latest Nikkor 85mm f/1.4 G to the older 85mm f/1.4 D. You mentioned near the bottom of the comparison page:
Since the 85/1.4D has long been considered one of Nikon's best lenses by many (though not by me), for the 85/1.4G to show unequivocal superiority is saying quite a lot.

Diglloyd DAP is DSLR-oriented, but also contains workflow and other topics. Much of the focus is on Canon and Nikon but also Pentax and Pentax medium format.
Special emphasis is placed on lens evaluation, focusing on Canon and Nikon and Sigma lenses, but with a few others like Rokinon/Samyang.
- Make better images by learning how to get the best results right away.
- Save money by choosing the right lens for your needs the first time, particularly some of the new Sigma Art lenses vs Nikon and Canon.
- Workflow discusses image organization, raw conversion and post processing. Many examples show processing parameters for direct insight into how the image was converted.
- Jaw-dropping image quality found nowhere else utilizing Retina-grade images up to full camera resolution, plus large crops [past 2 years or so].
- Real world examples with insights found nowhere else. Make sharper images just by understanding lens behavior you won’t read about elsewhere.
- Aperture series from wide open through stopped down, showing the full range of lens performance and bokeh.
- Optical quality analysis of field curvature, focus shift, sharpness, flare, distortion, and performance in the field.
