50mm f1.4G f2 DSC_2340 nx2 1300x870.jpg

The test of the Nikon AF-S 28-70mm f2.8, Nikon 1 VR 30-110mm,
Nikon AF-S DX 35mm f1.8, Nikon AF-S 50mm f1.4 and the Nikon AF-S DX VR 85mm f3.5 micro
lenses as portrait lenses for the V1 is described at my post on dpreview
Test of some potential portrait lenses

All samples are shot as NEFs processed with Capture NX2, with the Portrait Picture Control with sharpening 1, Auto White Balance, Contrast with a weak S-curve, and a combined selective USM and High Pass sharpening step. Note the pictures' colour space are Adobe RGB so you have to see them in a colour space aware browser or download them and use a colour managed picture viewer. I couldn't hold the details in the strong red using sRGB.

The samples shown are downsized to 1300x870. If you're interested, full size JPGs and NEFs are available packed in a zip file at the following links:

The NEFs contain my PP steps in CNX2, though the original without any PP are available within the NEFs in CNX2. Opening the NEFs with other programs will only show the original NEF.
