When I bought my 85/1.4 MF lens, the store also had a second hand 85/1.4 AF, which is surprising since the lens is quite new. When I complained about the flare problem to the Nikon Digest, someone who owned the AF version responded by saying that his lens also flared. Just as well; the AF was going for $1200 (Can) vs $800 for the one I bought. The MF seemed much better construction. Construction wise, the Summilux (see, I mentioned Leica!) is tops. Dan C.
