best portrait lens from canon or nikon

  • Excerpt: If this lens the most underrated or most uncelebrated portrait lens, out of the big boy primes? Let's say that 50 and 85 are the best two focal length (FL) for portrait work. Of course, that is subjective. But hey, they are probably the most popular, right? Keeping this a Canon/Nikon discussion.
  • Pros: Bokeh, Image Quality, Lightweight, Reliable

Hated -> Loved -> wish I bought Zeiss

  • Excerpt: I bought this lens a long time ago to use on my F100 35mm SLR camera. It sat in the box, I just couldn't get a nice portrait out of it, used my 50mm ... When I went to DSLR I tried again, still could not get a nice photo out if it.
  • Pros: Clean
  • Cons: Bulky, Clumsy, Difficult To Use, Not Functional, Poor Autofocus, Poor Design

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...
  • Pros: Exquisite IQ, good night performer

Nice but not so impressive

  • Excerpt: Ordered one and tested on full frame. It is such a highly rated lens in Nikon lens, so I expected more. Here are the main issues from the copy I got: 1. Front focus at f1.4, gone at f2. I know the depth of field difference. It is disappointing, maybe I got a bad copy.2.

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
