AF-S Nikkor 85mm f/1.4G Lens

 

A fast prime lens that's ideal for portraiture and suits photographers who want to shoot at f/1.4.

Overall this lens isa winner for portrait photographers, particularly on the D800 body. Our Imatesttesting showed it provided superior resolution to the 24-70mm zoom we used forour D800 tests and was well able to match expectations for the D800's...

Nikon AF-S Nikkor 85mm f/1.4G review

 

A wide aperture short-telephoto lens with a silent focusing motor and Nikon's latest Nano Crystal lens coatings.

Good resolution performance; Beautiful out of focus blur; Excellent build quality; Negligible levels of CA; Good resistance to flare and ghosting

Maybe a touch pricey, but you get what you pay for

REVIEW: Nikon AF-S Nikkor 85mm f/1.4G

 

Nikon's flagship wide aperture portrait lens receives a facelift, gaining a silent-wave focusing motor and Nano Crystal Coatings to reduce ghosting and flare. Here, Gary Wolstenholme takes a look at how it performs.

Good resolution performance; Beautiful out of focus blur; Excellent build quality; Negligible levels of CA; Good resistance to flare and ghosting

Maybe a touch pricey, but you get what you pay for

As is often the case, there is much more to how a lens performs than the resolution alone. In this case, Nikon's new 85mm f/1.4 certainly proved itself capable of producing images of very high resolution when stopped down a little.

Great lens...A+ all around

 

I've long been waiting to own this amazing piece of glass and was worried I had built it up to be more than it could deliver. Not so, on the D700 this is a superb setup for portraits, and is a great/fast lens for candids. Amazing bokeh!

LIECA 90 STILL BEATS NIKON

 

If you are a color fine artist, Lieca still is king. The germans& sweden still will surpass the asian lens designers. Also the lieca glass will hold its value much more. My 1954 Lieca 50 macro still better color fidelity,tonality and sharpness

Versatile for D3/FX/DX FORMAT 85.MM +EQUALS 130MM IN DX

HEAVY_some plastic/Lieca compactness is key for long travleing
