Who uses the lenses doesn't change their properties, as if by some great marketing magic.
What I say is that Nikon has produced lenses forever with no consideration of their aesthetic properties beyond sharpness and contrast. Maybe they figured out the bokeh thing might sell them a 58mm lens recently, ok. The 50mm 1.4 AF-S was good imo, except for the green sludge in the bokeh. I was referring to the ai-s and af-d 1.8's but 1st pic is exactly what I mean by olive oil colored, second ok. Third the woman's skintone, particularly at her hairline is looking lobster colored. I think both these pics would look better, and have color that was easier to deal with, had you taken them with the 50mm f1.4 AF-S.
