      85mm f1.4 is a wonderful "fast glass" lens

      The Nikkor 85mm f1.4 is a classic portrait lens and short telephoto lens also good for landscapes, travel and street photography. It captures colors beautifully and produces outstanding bokeh for subject isolation. Highly recommended. Best Buy shipped it to my local store for pick-up. I may have a front-focusing issue and will have to deal directly with Nikon for warranty service, since an exchange lens wasn't available.

      I must say this is the best lens I've put on my D7100. The photos are extremely sharp yet elegant and beautiful looking . I would trade this camera just for this lens. So amazing. Only downside is there's no ED elements in there is chromatic abrasions .

      I love this lens. I’m a beginner but this lens takes some amazing shots. You would think I’m on the pro level with the images it captures. Totally can’t wait to see what it captures when I get better.

      This is a rather expensive lens so it's not for everybody but it produces an amazing result. I bought it to do portraits with and have not been disappointed. focuses fast on my D810 and the bokeh is beautiful. There is a lot of glass here so it's a heavy lens as well.

      I have no complaints with this lens! I use it was more than my 50mm. And I love my 50! It's not as good as the 50mm in low light but I haven't found that to be a big problem. I just bump up the ISO a little bit more.

      I use with a D4 body. I waited a year and finally got this lens. I usually have my camera set on manual, but on auto it has extremely fast focus! Depth of field is also excellent. If you can afford it, get it!

      I recently purchased and used this lens on an event- I must say I was blown away! It's butter smooth! Shoots warmer then others to adjust accordingly.

      Even two years ago the suggestions about refreshing the whole shorter prime lenses' line-up were among wishes the most often made when it came to the launches of new Nikon instruments. True, Nikon had some problems there. Older classic devicesFull Review
