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 AF-S DX Micro 85mm f/3.5G ED VR Review

 

Gary Wolstenholme reviews the Nikon AF-s DX Micro 85mm f/3.5G telephoto macro lens.

Good sharpness at optimum apertures; Lightweight; Vibration Reduction; Internal focusing

Although good, clarity isn't as impressive as some other Micro Nikkors

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

REVIEW: Nikon AF-S DX Micro Nikkor 85mm f/3.5G ED VR Lens Review

 

This telephoto macro lens for DX format Nikon cameras costs around £400 and sports Vibration reduction technology, a modest maximum aperture of f/3.5, an internal focusing design and a silent wave focusing motor. The 85mm Micro DX is one of the longer...

Good sharpness at optimum apertures; Lightweight; Vibration Reduction; Internal focusing

No focus limiter switch (although autofocus is fairly swift without it); Although good, clarity isn't as impressive as some other Micro Nikkors

Nikon's latest Micro Nikkor optic strikes a good compromise. It is a lens packed with the latest technology and features, but at a price that is really quite reasonable.

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...
