Check out the Sony 85mm F/1.4 Carl Zeiss Planar review.  This is an expensive special use lens aimed at advanced amateurs, as well as professional photographers.  Uses include portraiture work, and available light, hand-held shooting.  This very well built lens is sharp wide open, but exhibits normal veiling haze and axial color fringing at F/1.4-2.  Big deal, when used for its intended purpose, it’s a great lens, shooting test pictures at F/1.4 in broad daylight is not the proper use.  Don’t buy this lens if you want to take pictures of newspapers or test charts, for that, get the Sony 50mm F/2.8 macro lens.
