Great, inexpensive portrait lens with a beautiful bokeh

ginoshay, Ebay

  • Summary: This is a great, inexpensive option if you're looking for an excellent portrait lens. It's 85mm so you'll need a little room between you and your subjects. Adjust your F-stop to the lowest setting and you'll get that fantastic bokeh in your photos (that's when your subject is in-focus and the background blurred.) This is a very fast, autofocus lens. You'll need a Nikon camera with a built-in lens motor drive. there is no manual focus.

Get one you will love it. Nikon is stopping production.

  • Summary: What can I say....... Get one and enjoy taking portraits. Beautiful results. Nikon is stopping production of this beautiful lens and going to promote the G lens. But that would mean no aperture control in case of old manual cameras, also the G lens is more plastic than metal. This one is built like a tank.

Best Basketball lens for me.

  • Summary: I bought this lens for portraits and realized quickly that the lens was also perfect for taking pictures during basketball season. I love a fixed lens, and this one is one of the best. SUPER glad I bought it.

Great lens, go for it. You won't be dissatisfied.

  • Summary: This is an absolutely fantastic lens. For the price, it's unstoppable. From the length and brightness of the lens optics, one could infer how beautiful the photos are that this hunk of glass produces. Its also really solid, although it has a plastic exterior, the build quality is strong, with metal interiors. Keep in mind, when auto-focusing, the focus ring does rotate. Great for portraiture and mini-telephoto, it's a pretty strong addition to my collection.

Fantastic

NikonBrad, Amazon

  • Summary: I am replacing a 70-200 2.8 with this, reluctantly. However, I am pleased with the results and quality. Very sturdy build, which I like. I feel like I could drop it and not damage it. Much lighter than a telephoto lens with a wide aperture. A tad on the noisy side.

Superb Nikkor 85/1.8D lens

Kurus44, B&H Photo
23 July 2013
  • Excerpt: I was "on the fence" about the Nikkor 85/1.8D vs the 85/1.8G and decided on the former. Upon receipt, I fell in love with the build quality, overall feel and workmanship of this piece of glass & metal. The images from this lens are tack sharp. I have no regrets about buying the 1.8D over the 1.8G.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction

Lens lust

Brian Collins, Amazon
16 July 2013
  • Summary: I bought this lens before going to a concert at a very small, intimate club that is known for insanely low light levels. It performed like a champ on my D7000. I was getting great shots while other photogs were grumbling obscenities. Since then, it's become my favorite lens for shooting high school volleyball games. Very fast autofocus, very sharp.
