First light with my Nikon D7200 (unmoved), curious to see how it would perform with the Nikkor 85mm F/1.8G. I'd done it with my Nikon D700 with great success... Not as good on the D7200.

This particular shot was at F/4 and still shows quite a lot of chrominance and coma. I wasn't able to get any darks so there is some what appears to be FPN in the background that might be cleaned up with darks.. Or maybe not. Unsure.
