  • Excerpt: I bought this for low-light long shots for use with my D7100. I have had mixed results with focusing in mixed lighting. When it focuses, over 80% of the time, the images are very impressive. I like the color rendering. Depth of field is very narrow at fast apertures...

Bang for the buck is tough to beat

Nathan B, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: I shoot weddings and portraits almost exclusively. The Nikkor 85mm f/1.8 is sharp corner to corner at all apertures, has held up very well (bouncing around on the end of a sling for 8-10 hours without complaint or reduced function), and the hood stays put nicely. AF is quick and reliable.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh

Sharpest lens I own

Robin, B&H Photo
18 June 2015
  • Excerpt: The 85 1.8 is quickly becoming the lens I find a way to use even if it is not the best focal length. Great for portraits but also use of landscape. Using on older DSLR with smaller sensor but this lens allows be to get the most resolution possible outside of a 5x more expensive Zeiss.
  • Pros: Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh
