Flare and ghost are no longer a problem because AF-S NIKKOR 85mm f/1.4G lens has a very special nano crystal coat which was adopted by Nikon especially to solve these problems. As far as the auto focus goes, you won’t even hear it thanks to the SWM or Silent Wave Motor added but you can also select to focus it manually.
