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
  • Cons: Plastic

Sharpest lens I own

Robin, B&H Photo

  • 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

User Review

  • Excerpt: I love this lens as much as I love the 50MM. Currently, I get more use out of the 50MM, but the 85MM 1.8G is a beast! You'll love the clarity and the bokeh.
