Great Lens

  • Excerpt: Just added this to my collection (need to stop this bad habit) and found the 85mm to be a great lens for portraits and general photography at a birthday party and family gathering. The bokeh was excellent and lens is quick to focus and gave really nice photos (have a D750 body).
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh

  • Excerpt: I shoot a lot and wanted get this lens as an alternative to my 70-200MM. Its a great focal length and far lighter than 70-200. I did not know that my D610 could be so sharp. I have 50MM but I think that this is sharper.

Taking the plunge for a Prime Lens

  • Summary: This is a sharp, fast, and versatile lens capable of getting great shots when your subject is either very small, very detailed, or sufficiently far away from the lens to capture enough of it in the frame.

Best lens for the price - almost

  • 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...

Needed some fine tuning, but super sharp

davelawler, B&H Photo

  • 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
