Nikon AF-S DX Micro Nikkor 85mm f/3.5G ED VR review at photodo

"Although not mind-blowing, this lens puts in a decent performance as far as sharpness is concerned. At maximum aperture sharpness is good in the centre of the frame, and approaching good towards the edges.

As the lens is stopped down, the clarity improves until f/8, where sharpness in the centre of the frame is excellent, and very good towards the edges.

The blue column represents readings from the centre of the picture frame at the various apertures and the green is from the edges. Averaging them out gives the red weighted column.

The scale on the left side is an indication of actual image resolution. The taller the column, the better the lens performance. Simple.

For this review, the lens was tested on a Nikon D300 using Imatest.
Chromatic aberrations are kept within reasonable levels. At their worst they just exceed one pixel width towards the edges of the frame at f/16. This level may start to become visible, but only in very large prints or harsh crops from the edges of the frame."
