Nikon AF Nikkor 85mm f/1.8D Lens Review

SLR Lens and Camera Reviews
6 June 2009
  • Summary: Nikon AF Nikkor 85mm f/1.8D is a pretty solid lens, that despite its aging design still manages to show some character. Image resolution is quite decent on both APS-C as well as FF cameras with one notable exception - f/1.8 (and f/2 to some degree) are the weak points. The lens struggles a bit here and while resolution is not everything, other characteristics, such as flare, vignetting, axial CA, also leave room for improvement (quite a bit of room).

Nikkor AF 85mm f/1.8 D - Review / Test Report

photozone.de
31 October 2008
  • Conclusion: The Nikkor AF 85mm f/1.8 D was a very boring lens during the tests simply because it showed a exceptional performance in all tested categories. Besides the lab results the lens shows a beautiful bokeh (out-of-focus blur). If I had to name a weakness it may be flare in contra light but it is a minor issue in the otherwise very harmonic package.

  • Excerpt: 18.01.2010 85mm fast objektiver er ofte kjent for å være godt egnet til portretter . De har en flott evne til å viske ut bakgrunnen og med 9 blender blad som dette har så langer det fantastisk flott bokeh. Objektivet kom på markedet i 1994, og nikon har ikke hatt noe behov for å oppgradere dette til tross for at det i skrivende stund er 16 år gammelt. Kvalitetsobjektiver holder seg ofte lenge!
