  • Excerpt: I'm using this lens for shooting people. It's an amazing lens in studio but also outside. The depth of field is just incredible and beautiful. The quality of the picture increase so much. I just got it so I'm still discovering it.

Fantastic lens

Phantom, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: This is a fantastic lens, its very sharp at all apertures. Even wide open there is no light fall off. The only reason I deducted a star is it is slow to focus in very low light.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Lightweight, Reliable

Good lens, but Overpriced and Dated

StevenK, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: I own the manual focus version but longed for the AF-S version for night time street scene shots.<br /><br /> I have to say I was a bit disappointed by this version. First, it has horrendous axial chromatic aberrations. Now I'm not sure if an ED version could ameliorate this, but I though for the huge price upgrade from the manual to the AF-D and now more so to the AF-S version, Nikon could have addressed this.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Fast Focus, Floating Focus, Inner Construction, Lightweight, Very Sharp At 56
  • Cons: Bad Axial Ca, Bulky, Design Appears Outdated, Expensive, No Ed Elements, Poor Outer Construction

Brilliant lens.

  • Excerpt: Best lens I ever used in terms of Bokeh, Contrast and Sharpness. However due to very narrow deapth of field, aperture below 2.8 is almost useless for portrait photographs.
  • Pros: Durable, Easy To Use, Lightweight, Reliable

Very Good!

Jacknthephotobox, B&H Photo
18 February 2013
  • Excerpt: This lens is very good but sometimes it just miss and doesn't Auto focus. I purchased this lens hoping to see some incredible images while using a tripod. <br /><br />Once I noticed that the auto focus stop working and I had to reset the AF/MF switch, I knew something was wrong. So, I asked the rep at B&amp;H to try it out and guest what? It happened again. It just kept firing blurry images one after the other. IT would not focus.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Sharp
  • Cons: Not Functional

Portrait beast

Darren, B&H Photo
15 January 2013
  • Excerpt: If I could give this lens a 4.5 rating I would. Lack of the full 5 because its lack of sharpness when at 1.4 (but this is me being unfair as no lens is perfectly sharp wide open). None the less, this lens is nicknamed &quot;the cream machine&quot; by professionals and this stands for good reason! This quick and quiet AF-killer has the potential to produce some pretty epic portrait images when stopped down to f/2 or f/2.8.

Nice upgrade to the 85 1.4D

Ed, B&H Photo
27 December 2012
  • Excerpt: Upgraded from the 85 1.4D. Faster AF more accurate also I believe. Solid build. Manual focus easier than prior 85.<br />Needs a better case to be supplied for the price.
  • Pros: Durable, Easy To Use, Reliable
