Hi John,


Yes and No.


From DxO:

"Its best characteristic is homogenous sharpness with no edge softness even with the aperture wide open at f/1.8."


However, in the same paragraph they also state:


"It holds its own in our other Lens Metric Scores too with the notable exception of vignetting, which is where the Nikon 85mm f/1.8G falls down."


As we all know, the Vignetting will of course be less severe when using the DX "sweet-spot" since the greater part of the outer edge where vignetting resides is not used.

I believe we all agree that the 85mm 1.8G is a great lens when used on either a DX or FX camera.
