    How's the CA on this one?

    I've been enjoying the Canon Fdn 135mm f/2, but I've looked at the Nikon a few times now with temptation.

    This is a Defocus Control lens.
    You can read a review here:

    I really love this lens on my D800.
    This is my first time out with it mounted on the A7s.

    I need a little more practice with the manual focus on this lens.
    In bright daylight, this lens is super sharp with nice bokeh in the background
    You can even see the bokeh in this pic.

    I am not a pixel peeper, and didnt see any noticeable CA.

    Also check out the reviews on B&H on this lens, and its little brother the 105mm DC lens.
    Both received spectacular reviews.

    I know. But the older Nikon 135mm f/2 is pretty terrible. The sharpness is well known. I've just never heard anything one way or the other about CA.
