My dearest lens, the Nikkor 85mm f/1.8, that I bought for the not insignificant amount of 170 dollars, is causing me some worries. Green CA in high-contrast OOF areas. I mostly shoot at large apertures, so this is a problem that I can't really live with.
So I guess I have to plan for an upgrade. The question is: to what
Both the Nikkor f/1.4 and the Zeiss f/1.4 are excellent lenses, but what about CA? I would also consider the Nikkor 105mm f/2.0 and, in case I feel terribly rich one of these days, the Zeiss 100mm f/2.0, but that would leave me with a large gap down to 50mm. Or should I consider the Micro Nikkor 105mm VR? I have the non-VR version, which is excellent, but too slow for low-light work.
