Fantastic lens

  • Summary: The Nikon 85 1.4G is the best lens I own. Fast focus on my D750 even handheld @ 1.4 in the city at night. And the bokeh is incredible. I had previously owned the Nikon 85 1.8G, which was good, but the Nikon 85 1.4G is superior. It is tack sharp and an excellent lens to use in low light.

  • Summary: Sharpness wide open is more than decent, but I'd typically stop down to f/2.2 for "dreamy" portraits because some DOF must be... but you'll always get sharp eyes. Night shots are very clean (low flare or bleeding) ; there is only some coma in the corners, looking like flies (two distinct small...

Simply Stunning Results

  • Excerpt: Ironically for portraits, I really enjoy shooting with my ten year old Nikon 50mm f1.8D on my D800, wide open, producing rather soft and flattering results. However, after receiving my 85mm f1.4G, I don't think I'll want to use the 50mm nor my 135mm f2.0 DC.

My favorite lens

  • Excerpt: This lens is legendary for the right reasons, and it hasn't come off my camera since I got it several weeks ago. Even knowing ahead of time from many reviews, I am still amazed and sometimes could not believe the extreme sharpness that this lens can produce even at its maximum aperture.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Reliable

  • Summary: This lens will set you images apart from the rest. The DOF is just amazing, and the speed of the lens is even better. I use it with a D810, and continue to be amazed with the quality of the pictures.

Great, couple of improvements needed

Carl, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: There is no debating the sharpness of this lens and the creamy bokeh.However, a lens that costs this much ought to have a much closer focusing distance. Two feet at a minimum. The 85 f/1.8G focuses to 2.6 feet.
  • Pros: Durable, Lightweight, Reliable
  • Cons: Bulky, Long Focusing Distance
