  7. Nikon - AF-S NIKKOR 85mm f/1.8G Medium Telephoto Lens - Black - Angle_Zoom
    Top comment

    "Great Lens...It draws you into the subject with its shallow depth of field and works great in low light at 1.8. While most zooms cover this length, this prime lens has a lot to offer and the qualitative look of the images it produces just can't be matched with a zoom (not to mention that it's much faster than most zooms at 1.8)....RMcM 85mm Nikon lens...Photos are reasonably good and lens works fairly well under low light conditions but focus of subjects is not as crisp and precise as other higher quality Nikon lenses (for example: 70x200 mm f-2.8 zoom lens)."

    Top comment

    "Don’t even read the rest of this review just get it! This lens is just amazing! For years I waited for a good yet affordable 2.8 mid zoom lens for Nikon. ...This lens!...Not gonna lie, I still usually go for my primes (they're just smaller and so light weight), but when I need something with the flexibility to zoom, this is what I go for. You got me Nikon :) took me years and several cameras in between to find a zoom lens that I can be completely happy with."

    Top comment

    "Lens is good but not worth the price....Better use a FTZ if you have a AF-S zoom lens lying around. I have a 18-105 AF-S lens old lens and I did not find much difference in photo quality unless you zoom and try to locate aberration which most average photographers don't do. ...Nikon Lense...I purchased the Nikon Z9 package deal. This lense produces a sharp image. "
