12 elements apparently need some space...

The DSLR Nikkor 85/1.8 G is 26 mm shorter - and the flange distances differ 30.5 mm, so actually the whole package is a bit shorter. Bokeh balls look very cat-eyeish. Now, just one month of wait or even more, because at this slow pace of introducing new lenses each one gets massive attention - at least amongst Nikon users. Some of them (of us, I have to say) even fantasize how Nikon is up to dominate the market of mirrorless...

*scratchingmyhead* I see this a lot in forums, these fanboy wars, but how can one be this kind of delusional? 3 primes and 3 zooms don't classify for "world leadership". Anyway, I will compare this one (once it's arrived) with the Sigma. I decided to see how far I come with the FL I began some decades a go.
