Product Details

Nikon AF-S Fx NIKKOR 85mm f/1.8G Camera Lens, Model 2201N

Designed for use on Nikon's FX-format D-SLR cameras, this updated medium telephoto f/1.8 lens is great for shooting stills or 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 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.

Features:

  • Get astonishing low light results
    This medium telephoto portrait lens is great for use in the studio, on set or for shooting in available light; producing stills or HD video of people with attractive skin tones and beautiful background blur. With its fast f/1.8 aperture, the AF-S NIKKOR 85mm f/1.8G will capture even low-light situations with stunning brilliance
  • Achieve more natural depth of field
    When you need to isolate the subject from the background, as when shooting portraits—indoors or outdoors—stills or HD video, the AF-S NIKKOR 85mm f/1.8G renders a beautiful, natural background blur (Bokeh) at its wider aperture settings
  • Designed for digital with superior performance
    Nikon's Super Integrated Coating (SIC) enhances light transmission efficiency and offers superior color consistency and reduced flare. Nikon's Silent Wave Motor (SWM) assures fast, accurate and quiet autofocus as well as full compatibility including autofocus with Nikon's complete line up of FX- and DX-format cameras
  • 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
  • Silent Wave Motor
    Nikon's AF-S technology is yet another reason professional photographers like NIKKOR telephoto lenses. AF-S NIKKOR lenses feature Nikon's SWM which converts "traveling waves" into rotational energy to focus the optics. This enables high-speed autofocusing that's extremely accurate and super quiet
  • M/A mode
    AF-S NIKKOR lenses feature Nikon's exclusive M/A mode, that allows switching from autofocus to manual operation with virtually no time lag—even during AF servo operation and regardless of AF mode in use.
    Nikon Super Integrated Coating icon
  • Nikon Super Integrated Coating
    To enhance the performance of its optical lens elements, Nikon employs an exclusive multilayer lens coating that helps reduce ghost and flare to a negligible level. Nikon Super Integrated Coating achieves a number of objectives, including minimized reflection in the wider wavelength range and superior color balance and reproduction

I bought this lens a few weeks ago and it's been incredible to shoot with. It's extremely quick and great in low light. The 1.8 f-stop allows for a creamy bokeh. For a long time, I dreamed about one day purchasing the 85mm 1.4G, but now that I've purchased this one, I am extremely content.

    Amazingly sharp with beautiful bokeh

    By 

    from Irvine, CA, USA

    Comments about Nikon AF-S Fx NIKKOR 85mm f/1.8G Camera Lens:

    I have bought this lens to go with my Nikon D600 for taking portraits and have been using it for the past two years. Ever since I have gotten this, this has become my favorite lens and have not used the other four lenses I have (50mm 1.8D, 35-70mm 2.8D, 24-85mm, and 70-210mm) so much. In the past, I have used the Nikon 85mm f/1.8D, and the Canon 85mm f/1.8 lens on different camera bodies, and they both had to be stopped down a couple of stops or so to get sharp pictures. But, this lens produces super sharp pictures even wide open at f/1.8. Here is my impression: * Very, very sharp even wide open at 1.8; stopped down a couple of stops, the sharpness is superb. * Lovely bokeh - super smooth backgrounds. * The color rendering of this lens is neutral and very pleasing on Nikon D600, especially the skin tones are natural. * Very good price for the quality, especially compared to the Nikon 85mm 1.4G. The only other lens that I have used and liked as much for sharpness and color rendition in this price range is the Olympus Zuiko 50mm f/2.0. * Although the build quality is okay, I wish it had a metal body. * Auto focus is fast enough and the focus seems to be spot on.

    Go-To Lens

    Comments about Nikon AF-S Fx NIKKOR 85mm f/1.8G Camera Lens:

    Even in the worst light, this lens works wonders! Specializing in natural-light photography, I needed a lens that was fast, sharp, and had high shutter speed with low depth of field. I have not been disappointed. It is lightweight and versatile. Can't wait to take it to the next level!

    85MM Review

    By 

    from Columbia, SC, USA

    Comments about Nikon AF-S Fx NIKKOR 85mm f/1.8G Camera Lens:

    I love this lens as much as I love the 50MM. Currently, I get more use out of the 50MM, but the 85MM 1.8G is a beast! You'll love the clarity and the bokeh.

    Great lens and very versatile

    By 

    from chicago, IL

    Comments about Nikon AF-S Fx NIKKOR 85mm f/1.8G Camera Lens:

    Just upgraded to an FX body and so still experimenting, but have found a terrific use for this lens on my old DX body. It works great as a semi-telephoto lens, which I use to snap awesome action pics of kids' hockey games! The arenas are often dimly lit compared to NHL games, but this lens lets me take bright, crisp pics at 1/500 of a second from behind the glass. At larger apertures, the skaters appear so crisp and colorful, and really pop against the soft backgrounds. Lens not long enough to shoot from stands or bench; guess I am going to have to bite the bullet and get the 70-200 mm f2.8 and pop that on my D610.

    DO IT

    By 

    from Manhattan, New York, NY, USA

    Comments about Nikon AF-S Fx NIKKOR 85mm f/1.8G Camera Lens:

    Since purchasing this lens I have found it very difficult to switch lenses throughout the day...this baby works too well! The autofocus is nearly always accurate and moves at a decent speed. The f1.8 creates some beautiful bokeh thanks to a 7 bladed rounded diaphragm. and I always love a little bit of weather sealing. Youll just keep shooting with this lens....

    Perfect lens for portraits

    By 

    from New York, NY, USA

    Comments about Nikon AF-S Fx NIKKOR 85mm f/1.8G Camera Lens:

    This is a great lens for shooting portraits! At the zoom length, there's no noticeable distortion and can do beautiful things at very large apertures making it perfect for portraits. I've had it for a few weeks and done a couple of shoots. The only criticism would be that it's auto-focusing is not always quick or accurate.

    Tack Sharp

    By 

    from Canonsburg, PA

    Comments about Nikon AF-S Fx NIKKOR 85mm f/1.8G Camera Lens:

    Very sharp lens. The price is very reasonable for a tack sharp lens such as this. Auto focus is fast enough in most cases. Color is excellent and coma almost non-existent. Overall you get a lot for your dollar with this lens. On a D800 this lens got a 40 score on the DXO. Not many lenses score higher. A must have if you wish to capture extreme detail or maximize a D800's potential.

    Fine Fast 85mm Lens

    By 

    from Colorado Rocky Mountains

    Comments about Nikon AF-S Fx NIKKOR 85mm f/1.8G Camera Lens:

    Although I have at least three other Nikkor lenses that cover 85mm (classic 85mm manual focus f/2, 24-120mm f/4, and AF-S 80-400mm G) the f/1.8 provides much larger aperture and very fine Bokeh for selective focus work. Very good resolution wide open, even the corners, and excellent resolution corner to corner from f/2.8 until diffraction softening starting about f/11. And virtually no distortion. Although it's not a "gold ring" Nikkor, it's optical performance and mechanical feel are excellent -- manual focusing is precise with no play in the focus ring, and auto-focus is very fast on a D800e. Definitely a 'must' prime lens for any photographer wanting an excellent short-medium telephoto.

    85mm f/1.8G

    Comments about Nikon AF-S Fx NIKKOR 85mm f/1.8G Camera Lens:

    Excellent picture quality. The build is not as good and durable as the D lenses. Every thing else is excellent.
