A highly desirable focal length for portraiture, the AF-S NIKKOR 85mm f/1.8G from Nikon is a short-telephoto prime featuring a bright f/1.8 maximum aperture. This design finds balance between a lightweight, compact form factor while also being fast enough to effectively control depth of field and suit working in low light. Individual lens elements feature a Super Integrated Coating, which controls flare and ghosting to produce greater contrast and color fidelity when working in bright and backlit conditions. Additionally, the Silent Wave Motor affords fast and accurate autofocus performance along with full-time manual focus override.

Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 85mm f/1.8G Reviews
Good images at a good price.
This lens didn't quite meet my expectations for a f/1.8 prime, but ultimately the images you can make with it are really nice. My assessments are all done on a focus calibrated D810. Wide open contrast is average and sharpness is good, stopped down the lens improves greatly. I've found that I need to apply a bit more contrast and saturation to the images out of this lens than with my other f/1.8 primes. The focus is accurate and a little slow to move from minimum to maximum but in smaller increments it shows little to no issue. If you value a good price over ultimate performance then you'll like this lens.
Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 85mm f/1.8G Lens is the perfect lens for all around lens...
The lens I've always wanted.......
Great fast Lens.
For Portrait & Fashion photography you can't beat this Lens for the price. At small apertures it produces beautiful background bokeh & razor sharp eyes/facial features with smooth skin complexion. Also excellent short telephoto for general photography.

The Nikon 85mm f1.8 lens as excellent optics. Allows crisp sharp pictures.
Great value and great images
This is one of my all-time favorite primes. It's very light for the focal length and aperture, and makes great images. In fact, when I want to make close-up images, but I don't need 1:1, I often use this lens with extension tubes on my D850.
A whole new world
I've been a photographer for only two whole years. I'm still learning my way around lighting and learning how to pose my models. Even so this lens is a must have for any type of photography. This is my first prime lenses and coming from lenses with aperture of 4-5.6 it's a whole new world. I'm learning how to work this lenses, but the images are astounding. If your indecisive of what lenses you should have next, look no further. The price isn't to bad either.
