    Hi,

    Does somebody has good/bad experiences with the Nikon 85mm f1.4 AIS version? (I'm planning to use it on the E-M10)

    Thanks!

    I haven't put mines back together yet so I'm interested too how it performs on m43s.

    It works good on my friend's D700. Lovely lens and compact vs his other monsters. He'd never let me use it though :(

    Yes, I own one and have shot perhaps millions of frames with it over the past 20 years or so. It's an amazing lens. That said, it's also a MONSTER of a lens -- even more so mounted on a diminutive body such as the E-M10! I've been shooting a lot with the Nikkor 85 f/1.8 AF (which is an internal focusing design) on an EM-1 and am LOVING it. Good luck!

    I have the 85mm f2 ais also which is a lot smaller and more likely getting used with the EM-1 since it is way lighter. It is soft wide open but gets sharp a stop down and smaller.
