Lens Test: Nikon 85mm f/1.8G AF-S Nikkor

 

When nikon introduced its full-frame D4 for pros in January, it also had something for its amateur fans: the 85mm f/1.8G AF-S Nikkor ($500, street)—the fifth 85mm for FX bodies in its current catalog. This newest 85mm also belongs to another Nikon...

Nikon 85mm f/1.8 D AF Review Round-Up

 

The Nikkor AF 85mm f/1.8 D was a very boring lens during the tests simply because it showed a exceptional performance in all tested categories. Besides the lab results the lens shows a beautiful bokeh (out-of-focus blur). If I had to name a weakness it...

Nikon 85mm f/1.8 D AF

 

Nikon produces three 85mm prime lenses in its Nikkor lens range and the 85mm f/1.8D AF is the most affordable.

Good choice for a portrait lens

 

This is a good choice for a portrait lens if you own a Nikon body and are looking to get the best value for the money. It\'s perfectly capable of beautiful images. If I had to nitpick, I\'d say the focusing speed is noticeably slower than my...

Fast Portrait Lens

 

Great companion portrait lens to the classic 105mm - the slightly wider field makes for nice portraits of couples\/families and small groups. But a fast lens like this puts it in the \'pro\' category where you don\'t expect to find a plastic barrel....

wonderful portrait lens

 

I just upgraded to full frame (D700) and wanted a longer portrait lens for headshots. Besides, my 50mm f\/1.4G was unsatisfactory because it has slow focus. The 85mm is anything like that: extremely sharp even at f\/1.8, even in low light conditions. I...

Great for the money

 

This is a fantastic bargain for a lens with this image quality. Although it is made of plastic, the optic inside is top notch. You can\'t find any better 85mm lens for the money on Nikon. I used to have teh Sigma 85mm f\/1.4 before this and I was very...

Indoor sports with no flash!

 

I wanted to take my own pictures at my 2 daughters gymnastics competitions. Most gyms have very poor lighting and flash is not allowed. My Nikon f\/4.5 zoom lens gave me decent pictures at max ISO with exposure compensated to +5.0 from my D90 but I...

Better than I expected!

 

I use this lens for indoor photography and portraits. The fast f\/1.4 aperture didn\'t let me down when I was in the Museum of Natural History last weekend. Even in the room where the elephants are kept I was able to get bright, razor sharp pictures!
