Testing IQ for Nikkor 58mm F/1.4

Here are simply a few test shots done at night, with high-ISO, and shot wide-open.  There are a zillion reviews on YouTube, DPReview, MyPhotography, etc., for serious details on this lens.

I was very interested in this “sort-of” Fifty – so I wanted to shoot with it under less than stellar conditions.  After reading myself cross-eyed on this lens, the primary or predominate complaint was how soft it was wide-open, in the center.  Subsequently, the photos I have illustrated here were in poor light, shallow depth-of-field (so looking at center IQ), very grainy, and so on.

My thoughts here are that this lens is actually so, so much sharper than EVERYONE seems to think it is.  To make things worse (better, actually) I have NOT even done any AF-Fine Tune, yet.
