great optics and strong construction

  • Summary: Nikons modern 85 is much more expensive. Canons excellent 85 is 2k USD. I bought my 1.4d for 800 used in mint condition. Unlike the more expensive G lens this is mostly metal. Nikon might have discontinued it so don't wait on this lens.

  • Summary: This Nikon 85mm f1.4 D, is a real treat, and I am lucky to have located one of the last remaining, new one. Built-solid like all of Nikon’s Ds, it will live and function much longer that I will. Top quality, nothing like it.

There is no way a lens can be this good. Portraits are ticky tack sharp even at 1

  • Summary: Every time I use this lens and see the results I just think to myself no way. There is no way a lens can be this good. Portraits are ticky tack sharp even at 1.4, if you nail focus, and generally my D610 does a fantastic job of doing so. Of course the bokeh is insane. Like so insane.

Mind blowing back/foreground seperation

Ron, Amazon

  • Summary: I walked into my local camera store and tried the 85mm 1.4G version and immediately fell in love. But the hefty price tag, it kept me at bay. The older 85mm 1.4d version was at a fraction of the price and I have to say was just as good as the G version with very little difference that is almost...

  • Summary: First of all, this lens is a home run. Second of all, getting it from Amazon, is a home run as well. I have owned this lens for about a month, and it has been on my camera (Nikon D 7000) for about 90% of the time.

  • Summary: For head and shoulder portraits, this is my go to lens. I'm comparing this lens subjectively with my other Nikon lenses: The 70-200mm f/2.8 VR, 105mm VR Macro, 50mm 1.8, 35mm 1.8, 18-70mm kit, and 10-24mm.

Best is BEST!

  • Excerpt: In my opinion, this is the best portriat lens that Nikon makes. To me, the ability to control DOF down to a sliver coupled with wonderfully pleasing brokah, are the elements of a great portriat lens.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
