Any one has this model? It definitely worth a try but I have a Nikon Z 50 1.8 and 105 2.8 macro.

I have this for 4/3rds. I like it a lot. Not critically sharp wide open, but that makes it desirable for portraits. Only gripe I may have is that the bokeh is a tad swirly, but again, that gives it some character. It's a good lens to have in your arsenal

I tried it for Nikon FX. Loved it with the focus chip. Mine was reasonably sharp wide open but really came to life around f2.5ish. Ended up returning it for a 1.8G for the AF because I need it to keep up with my son. Overall fantastic lens.

Try Amazon if you want to give it a whirl; sometimes free returns will pop up.

I had the Nikon FX version and it's very sharp, but also very heavy. I liked the lens, but didnt keep it. There really isnt anything wrong with it except it's a big heavy lens to carry and I also have a 100mm 2.8 autofocus.

Personally, I wouldnt bother with it since you already have the 105mm.

The 35mm 1.4 Samyang / rokinon is definitely worth trying, but again very big lens. It's a bargain 35mm 1.4. I eventually also sold it and keep the older, less sharp, but still good Nikon 35mm f2 AF in my bag.

I've got it in a different mount. I love it, and I've gotten a lot of use out of it in indoor event photography. I was concerned about the lack of focus but for portrait and talking head kind of things in suspect light (that gave my other lenses problems) it's not an issue. Wide open it creates such a bright viewfinder image even in low light that with focus peaking manual focus is a cinch. Bokeh is quite pleasing if not earth shattering. Sharpness and color accuracy are solid. Built like a tank and heavy, which I personally prefer but it something to consider.

In short if you can live without the autofocus I think it's a gem of a lens at this price (almost exactly what I paid for it).

No but you could get a Nikon F mount version.

You need the Nikon F mount as mentioned but also remember this is manual focus only. If you want auto focus you'll need to look at the 1.8G. The 1.8D will not autofocus on your camera.

Manual focus only, which can be challenging at 85mm, especially wide open. Great price for F/1.4 though.
