Nikon Nikkor AF-S 85 mm f/1.8G

 

One of the best lenses around.For DX cameras is a bit too long for general use (~130mm equiv).

Superb shaprness and IQ

A bit plasticyNo stabilizationLots of chromatic aberration

Add 200€ and give me the same lens with a sturdy, metal finishing + some minor optical improvements.

Interesting Bokeh on FF

Wide open on the D800, the lens is a bit soft.The plastic finishing & cheap manufacturing versus what Nikon was capable to do in the past.Chromatic aberration in some circumstances

This is my favorite lens on the D800. (I've never tried the 85/1.4G, though) The handling, weight and "feel" to this combination simply makes shooting a pure pleasure, and it provides fantastic IQ! A great-value nobrainer. Love it!

Awesome lens for flattering portraits and great for landscapes too. Sharpness is excellent, clearly better than the old 1.8D-version in the open end. Pleasant bokeh, contrast and colours. Only 350g and a delight to handle

I'd liked it to have 9 blades of course, but 7 rounded is ok
