Summary: As I am wedding photographer (visit my site: https://www.photoproject.ch) I am using this lens very often! Is it absolutely my favorite lens for couple photoshooting and also at ceremony in church.
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...
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.
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.
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.
Excerpt: I use this for portraits, HS basketball, and landscaping. I can't tell you the number of reviews I've read about a particular lens, and how it stays on someones camera forever, etc... But this lens is just so much fun!
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.
