Needed some fine tuning, but super sharp

  • Excerpt: My first outing was a little disappointing, as every image was significantly front focused. I was pixel peeping, admittedly; but who wouldn't? It was off enough that even moderate prints looked 'off'. Anyway, it's perfect after AF fine tuning -- my copy on my body required a +13 adjustment.
  • Pros: Lightweight
  • Cons: Needed Af Tuning

  • Excerpt: After careful study I chose this 85mm f1.8 over the 1.4 as it is sharper. Check out cameralabs 85mm comparsion. I got this lens specifically to shoot action at large apertures where spot on autofocus is mandatory.
  • Pros: Price, Sharp
  • Cons: Quality control

Solid lens

  • Excerpt: Very good lens for the price. Great lens to fill out your collection. I use it primarily for a medium close and close shot for video interviews. Only thing that would take this lens up a star would be if the focus ring were smoother.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Easily Interchangeable, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh

pairs nicely with Nikon D610

  • Excerpt: Prime lens that works nicely as a walk-around due to exceptional image quality. Lightweight but feels solid. Quick accurate focus with D610. A winner for hand-held portraits, if slightly too long for small crowded scenes. Take a few steps back! Have not tried it for video yet.Great value.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight
