    Great capture, indeed. I noticed the 50mm f/1.8G in the description. Were you just looking for something lighter than the Art to tote around? What are your impressions of the G?

    • Hi Will, and thanks.

      I’ve owned the 50 1.8G since I’ve had my D810 (it was almost a freebie with my camera when I bought it last year), but I haven’t used it much. Interestingly, it was the only Nikon lens I owned when I was hired shortly thereafter to do a photo shoot, so I used it and it performed admirably. I like the bokeh and colours from this lens (in these respects, I was pleasantly surprised).

      The downside? The lens only reaches the sort of sharpness I find acceptable at about f/4. Any aperture wider than that and I find it a little too soft.

      As a “daylight lens” on the D810, it is brilliant. And of course, it’s very portable.

      Hope that helps,
