This page is a collection of photo samples taken with the Nikon 85mm f/1.4D IF AF Nikkor lens, plus related image galleries, user pictures and other examples that I’ve come across in forums, online communities, blogs and related websites.
This should help in determining if the image quality of the Nikkor 80 1.4 D meets your expectations.
Bear in mind that the majority of these photos are re-sized, and may have gone through post-processing, retouching or other edits. I just thought that it would be interesting to see, at a glance, what Nikon 80mm f1.4D owners and users are shooting with their lens.
Full-sized images, where available, will assist with judging the image quality.

Nikon D3X review samples at PhotographyBlog — Unfortunately, the full-resolution test images (JPEG and RAW / NEF) at PhotographyBlog’s review of the Nikon D3X aren’t labeled with the lens used, but you can make an educated guess by looking at the focal length.
For instance, the image of a section of a battleship was taken with the 85/1.4D.
