Excerpt: I've wanted this lens ever since I played with the same one, but the 1.4 version and LOVE it. I'm not yet rich enough to afford the 1.4, but the 1.8 is lighter and still gives you amazing images! The images are crisp and this is a must have lens for any true portrait or event photographer!
Pros: Consistent Output, Easily Interchangeable, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction
Excerpt: This lens is very quick focus and sharp. I have used this lens for low light events and portraits. I have owned many Nikon lenses over the years and this is the only fixed lens that I use on a regular bases.
Pros: Consistent Output, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh
Excerpt: The 85mm f1.4 is an excellent lens, but about three times the price of the 85mm f1.8. The f1.8 offers very high image quality in a smaller lens. This is a great choice when size, weight and price are issues.
Pros: Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh
Excerpt: Perfect for portraits - love the sharpness and the price. Have also been using out on the street, nice and light, just have to zoom w/ my feet.... Pairs very nicely w/ D810 - sharp and compact.
Pros: Consistent Output, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh
