Summary: Ive had the lens before and it's one of my favorites, and the one i received is great Except.... the UV filter that was one this lens was a giant pain in the A.. to take off. Couldn't tell if it was the lens ring or the filter grooves that were bad but once off I was glad to find it was the filter...
Summary: Very good lens! Fast focus because of F1.8. You must have nikon with AF built in the body in order to use Autofocus with this lens. Nice picture quality. I recomment this for portraits from distance and night shots. Very good product. A Lens every photographer must have.
Summary: I like the lens and bokeh, but unfortunately the focus is a hit and miss. I've sent the lens back to Nikon and they told me that the lens is as it is supposed, but because "it is older technology might miss focus regularly" Leaving that aside, the lens is really nice with f/1.8 and at least my copy...
Summary: this lens is sooo creamy. not great for inside since you have to be kind of far away which is why i only gave it 4 stars instead of 5. i will be doing portraits in the spring, and im sure it will be my go to lens for that.
Summary: The 85 1.8D was a blast to shoot with. It runs for about $350-425 used and produces nice bokeh. Portraits are its specialty and I was able to get many creamy indoor/outdoor shots with its large aperture. With enough room, I was still able to take group shots on a crop sensor.
Summary: This is a beautiful prime lens! It's rugged, works well in low light conditions, and produces excellent bokeh. My dream lens is the Nikon 85mm f/1.4G, but is still too expensive right now. I also couldn't see paying $1,300 for the Nikon 85mm f/1.4D. This was a good compromise for a portrait lens.
Excerpt: I purchased this product specifically to photograph indoor gymnastics meets and indoor volleyball tournaments for my kids. (No flash allowed) I have been so pleased with the crisp, clear photo's that I have been able to get, as well as amazing shots that caught a completely still moment.
Pros: Consistent Output, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Great for sports, Nice Bokeh
Summary: I recently bought a Nikon D90 with a spendy AF-S Nikkor 18-200mm F3.5-5.6G zoom. My purpose was to take quality hockey pictures of my son. The spendy 18-200mm lens was a disaster for indoor hockey photos. Purchasing a zoom that could handle the light meant big bucks and carrying a lot of weight.
