JUST BUY IT. Then read below...

  • Excerpt: I was a big fan of the look of an 85mm on DX, so after going full frame, I set my sights (and savings plan) on this optical triumph. I've been putting this lens through the paces for the past two weeks since I've got it, and it's done nothing but exceed my expectations.
  • Pros: Beautiful images, Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction

Beautifully well built solid piece of glass

  • Summary: As far as I am concerned, this lens is another marvel of engineering from Nikon. Beautifully well built solid piece of glass. I'm using it with the Nikon vertical battery grip (and an D810) for portrait stuff with its extra shutter button and additional battery capability.

If you shoot portraits, it's a MUST have

Ben Revzin, B&H Photo
14 February 2015
  • Excerpt: I bought this lens to shoot portraits, I already have a 50 1.4 and 85mm 1.8 but I wanted something with some more compression and even smoother bokeh. Paired up with my D800 the photos are spectacular.
  • Pros: Durable, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Heavy, Slower focus

Love the lens

Laney "Deeply Rooted", Amazon
12 February 2015
  • Summary: I love this lens. It has some terrible chromatic aberration, but nothing you can't fix in ACR. I was a little worried with the defocusing and how to work it. I watched some videos and played with it as well. Then I decided to just keep it on it's normal setting and used it entirely for one shoot.

Superb lens - but know why you need it before you buy.

D. Gantt, Amazon
30 January 2015
  • Summary: Outstanding sharpness, focus speed, and the ability to dial bokeh is WOW. That being said, evaluate your focal distance before buying. 135 is a distance you have to be far enough away from your subject or it's too close.

why Nikon is the portrait choice in 35

k75, B&H Photo
4 December 2014
  • Excerpt: This lens is sharp and the DC feature is wonderful. The lens focuses well on my 800. I have always been one to use little to no depth of field in portrait work. this lens goes even further bringing the attention to the subject. This lens is worth every penny and then some.
  • Pros: Awsome Bokeh, Sharp, Strong Construction

A Remarkable Lens

SEAROBIN, B&H Photo
14 November 2014
  • Excerpt: I have owned and used a manual Nikon 135mm f2 lens for more than twenty years and relied on it for many types of my photography. I recently purchased a Nikon Df body and, while the MF lens worked very well with the Df, I wanted to try a AF version .

The DC control takes some experimentation to find the effect you like or desire

fredrick stuart, Amazon

  • Summary: It is a glorious lens to use. The DC control takes some experimentation to find the effect you like or desire. Once established the results are not replicated by other lenses.
