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.
