Nikon 85mm f/1.8G AF-S NIKKOR Lens for Nikon Digital SLR Cameras


Nikon 85mm f/1.8G AF-S NIKKOR Lens for Nikon Digital SLR Cameras

Fast aperture, medium telephoto portrait lens for great stills and D-Movie HD videos
Designed for use on Nikon’s FX-format D-SLR cameras, this updated medium telephoto f/1.8 lens is designed for shooting stills or D-Movie HD videos. The AF-S NIKKOR 85mm f/1.8G features Nikon’s Internal Focus (IF) system providing fast and quiet AF and produces sharp and clear images at all apertures. Its fast maximum aperture is ideal for taking stills or D-Movie HD videos under ideal lighting, in low light, head and shoulder portraiture, weddings or concerts. When mounted on a DX-format D-SLR, the AF-S NIKKOR 85mm f/1.8G has an effective field of view of 127mm.

  • Internal Focusing: Imagine being able to focus a lens without it changing in size. Nikon’s IF technology enables just that. All internal optical movement is limited to the interior of the nonextending lens barrel. This allows for a more compact, lightweight construction as well as a closer focusing distance.
  • Nikon Silent Wave Motor: A significant innovation in AF lens technology, Nikon’s Silent Wave Motor uses ultrasonic (inaudible) vibrations—rather than a gear system—to focus the lens, providing incredibly smooth, silent and precise autofocus operation.
  • M/A Focus Mode Switch: When fine manual focusing is needed, simply rotate the lens focus ring—M/A mode allows you to seamlessly override the AF system with virtually no time lag.
  • Super Integrated Coating: Nikon’s Super Integrated Coating enhances light transmission efficiency and offers superior color consistency and reduced lens flare.
  • Fast aperture medium telephoto lens
  • Internal Focus
  • Silent Wave Motor (SWM)
  • M/A focus mode switch

    Great Lens with Beautiful Bokeh, July 4, 2012
    Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
    This review is from: Nikon 85mm f/1.8G AF-S NIKKOR Lens for Nikon Digital SLR Cameras (Electronics)
    I was looking at the 85mm lens. I was torn between the 85mm f/1.8G lens and the 85mm f/3.5G Micro lens. While I enjoy taking macro/micro shots, I wanted a lens that was sharp and had good bokeh. I also wanted to use the lens for general photography. I was spoiled using my 40mm f/2.8G micro lens as it does a great job with both micro and general photography. I decided on the 85mm f/1.8G lens. I haven’t looked back.

    This 85mm f/1.8 is a sharp lens with beautiful bokeh. I use this lens with my Nikon D7000 which equates to a focal length of 127.5mm. It took awhile to get used to the distance or focal length. I usually have to take a step or two back to get the object/subject to focus.

    I currently use the lens for florals and garden pictures. The pictures are sharp from f/1.8 through f/16. The bokeh is beautiful at f/1.8 through f/2.8. Creamy is the word that comes to mind. I’ve been really happy with the results from this lens.

    I’ve posted some pictures in the gallery. There’s a few florals (e.g. daylilies) and I also took some pictures of the packaging for this lens.

    I’ll be back to post any updates and additional pictures.

    ** Update 07/12/12 **

    I’ve had the chance to use this lens over several days taking pictures for a VBS event at my church. This lens does an amazing job with portraits. I set my D7k to Aperture and f/4. The bokeh is beautiful. I like how my focused subject appears to pop out of my pictures. Love this prime lens even at 128mm (DX). I’ve figured out how far (distance) I need to stand away from my subjects. My pictures are very sharp! Great lens!

    ** Update 08/09/12 **

    This has been my “go to” lens for the last several weeks. I’m using this lens for taking candid shots and portraits of people. I mentioned before that I have to take a step or two back when I compose my pictures. I love doing this as I don’t appear to be intrusive with my camera. Sometimes folks don’t even notice I’m taking their pictures.

    I’ve been using this lens in low light and haven’t been disappointed. I love the results I’m getting.

    ** Update 09/02/12 **

    This lens is now on my camera full time. It has become my favorite fixed prime lens (over my 50mm, 40mm, and my 35mm). I’m still getting great results whether photographing inside or outside. My images are always coming out sharp with lovely bokeh.

    ** Update 09/23/12 **

    I used this lens for a class photo shoot using my D7000. Set my aperture around f/4 and f/5.6. I was extremely pleased with the end results. Pictures were sharp. I’m having a blast with this lens!

    ** Update 11/10/12 **

    I’m now a proud owner of the Nikon D600 full frame DSLR camera. I mounted this 85mm lens and what a beautiful combination. Now I know what other reviewers mean when they say it’s a fantastic portrait lens. It truly is! I’m getting beautiful results and it’s great to be able to use this lens as a true 85mm.

    ** Update 10/02/13 **

    I had another opportunity to use this lens for another class photo shoot, but this time with my D600 camera. The portraits came out beautifully. Sharp pictures with lovely bokeh at f/4. No surprise that this lens and my D600…a great combination. One of the students peered at the back of my camera to see what the pictures looked like. Her comment: “Wow…the pictures are clear!”

    Review of the Nikkor 85m f/1.8G AF-S versus other Nikkor 85mm AF lenses, May 10, 2012

    DESCRIPTION OF THE LENS FOR THE NOVICE OR BEGINNER

    This lens is light, compact affordable, but produces very impressive results. I highly recommend the use of this lens for portrait, events and for landscape. Despite it being a fixed focal length and not being able to zoom, I highly recommend this lens for beginner Nikon dSLR users who own only the kit zoom lens that came with the camera. This lens allows you to shoot at low light and/or to blur the background of the subject of the photo. This prime lens is a safe, affordable and way to see for yourself how good a prime lens can be as against the kit zoom lens. It also shows what the other Nikon professional prime and professional lenses are capable of should you get serious in this hobby.

    REVIEW OF THE LENS FOR EXPERIENCED USERS

    What follows is a quick review is based on my use of this lens for around 2-weeks. It is intended for those already familiar with Nikkor’s line of 85mm prime lenses but are wondering how this lens compare with the other Nikkor 85mm autofocusing lenses that Nikon makes. This review is based on my own copy of the Nikkor 85mm f/1.4D, 1.8D, 1.4G and 1.8G.

    AGAINST THE NIKKOR 85mm f/1.8D

    The Nikkor 85mm f/1.8G is bigger than the Nikkor 85mm f/1.8D but is a bit lighter. Unlike the 85mm f/1.8D, this lens comes with a reversible hood which does a good job in protecting and shading the lens. With the hood reversed, the 85mm f/1.8G becomes much more compact than the 85mm f/1.8D with the hood installed. But with the hood installed, the wider lens barrel and the wider and longer hood makes the 85mm f/1.8G significantly bulkier than the 85mm f/1.8D.

    Reflecting the bigger-sized lens, the 85mm f/1.8G uses a 67mm filter while the 85mm f/1.8D uses a 62mm filter. As the “G” suffix indicates, the 85mm f/1.8G does not have an aperture ring while the 85mm f/1.8D has an aperture ring (see notes below in the 85mm f/1.4D for the significance of this).

    The older Nikkor 85mm f/1.8D have always been very sharp at the center and at the corners even when used wide-open but the new Nikkor 85mm f/1.8G is stll a bit sharper still. Despite being bigger and wider, the 1.8G has slightly more vignetting wide open than the 1.8D but this quickly reverses in favour of the 1.8G from about f/2.5 onwards. The two areas where the 1.8G has improved significantly over the 1.8D is in having better bokeh and also having less purple fringing when shooting wide-open. The 1.8G focus speed is a bit faster on a D7000 than the 1.8D on the same body. In addition, the 1.8G autofocus is now consistently more precise and significantly quieter.

    Priced reasonably, this 85mm f/1.8G lens can auto focus on Nikon bodies that do not have a built-in focusing motors (such as the Nikon D3000, D3100, D3200, D5000, D5100, D40, and D60). For those who use this focal length regularly, upgrading from the 1,8D to the 1.8G is easy to justify. For 1st time buyers of the 85mm lens, I highly recommend choosing the 1.8G over the 1.8D given the minimum price difference between these 2 lenses.

    AGAINST THE NIKKOR 85mm f/1.4D

    The Nikkor 85mm f/1.8G is of the same width as the than the Nikkor 85mm f/1.4D but is shorter and also significantly lighter by 200 grams. Unlike the 85mm f/1.4D, the 85mm 1.8G comes with a reversible hood which does a good job in protecting and shading the lens. Unlike the 85mm f/1.4D which uses a 77mm filter, the 85mm f/1.8G uses a 67mm filter.

    Wide-open at f/1.8 to f/2.5, the new Nikkor 85mm f/1.8G is sharper at the center, borders and at the corners than the 85mm f/1.4D. At f/2.8 and above, the 85mm f/1.4D improves considerably. The bokeh of the 85mm f/1.4D is still better and creamier but the 85mm f/1.8G is no slouch in this regard. There is also less purple fringing on the 1.8G than on the 1.4D used wide-open. Focus on the 85mm f/1.8G is a bit faster than the 85mm f/1.4D on a Nikon DX D7000 but the difference is small and insignificant. Focus precision between these two lenses are about the same but the 85mm f/1.8G focuses much quieter than the 85mm f/1.4D.

    The primary advantage of the 85mm f/1.4D over the 85mm f/1.8G is primarily in it being 2/3 of a stop faster and it having an aperture ring. The 2/3 stop advantage is significant for still and video while the aperture ring is very helpful for use in video. The aperture ring is also particularly helpful in still photography when using this lens with an adapter on m4/3 and NEX bodies as it allows the use of precise, easily set and repeatable aperture settings. This is the reason why I still have the Nikkor 85mm 1.4D and 1.8D lenses even after getting the 2 new Nikkor 85mm 1.4G and 1.8G lenses.

    For portrait photography where the subject is framed at or near the center, I would likely still opt for the 85mm f/1.4D but for anything else where the 2/3 stop advantage is not used,…

    Beautiful, Sharp, and Drop on the Concrete Durable, March 31, 2013
    Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
    This review is from: Nikon 85mm f/1.8G AF-S NIKKOR Lens for Nikon Digital SLR Cameras (Electronics)
    This lens took a 4 foot drop from the back of my SUV and bounced hard on concrete three times. I picked it up, horrified by what I might find. Not only did the lens still work perfectly but there wasn’t a scratch on it. The lens hood has a single small scuff mark but that was all. A lens that can take this type of a beating without so much as a scratch deserves a review.

    Pros:
    - This lens and the 50mm 1.8g are arguably the best value lenses that Nikon makes. The $100 instant rebates Nikon has been having on this lens recently make it a steal!
    - Super, ridiculously sharp from 1.8
    - Focus is silent, fast, and spot on with my D7000
    - Beautiful bokeh
    - 99% of the $1500 85mm 1.4G for 1/3 of the price.
    - Override manual focus with a touch.
    - Includes lens hood
    - Perfect portrait lens for DX or FX.

    Cons:
    - Made from durable, bounce off the concrete proof plastic instead of metal. Not sure if this is really a con.

    I sold my $1000+ Nikon 85mm 1.4D and have never looked back. That lens focused slower, less accurate, and wasn’t quite as sharp at 1.8. The only thing better about the 85 1.4D was that it was a hunk of solid metal and this lens is durable plastic. My pictures with the 1.8G are just as beautiful as the 1.4D. I don’t regret selling the more expensive lens for one second after my experience with amazing lens.
