Product Details

Nikon AF-S 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

Great lens and very versatile

By SnapDad

from chicago, IL

Comments about Nikon AF-S 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 Ollie

from Manhattan, New York, NY, USA

Comments about Nikon AF-S 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 andreaarellano

from New York, NY, USA

Comments about Nikon AF-S 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 Hindsight2011

from Canonsburg, PA

Comments about Nikon AF-S 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 PhotoGuy1

from Colorado Rocky Mountains

Comments about Nikon AF-S 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.

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

Instant Hit

By Jokerspool

from Charlotte, NC

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

After only only 1 evening of shooting to try it out, and over 200 images later, I can only rave about this lens. The crisp images I was able to capture coupled with the shallow depth of field has left me in awe of the potential. The candid portraits that I tested with, gave a clear subject with enough focus drop to draw attention right where it was needed. I was even able to take a few hand held shots of the night skys, and the lens, coupled to my D800 captured stars that I did not see with my eyes. I highly recommend this lens.

Amazing lens

By dandi

from Seattle, WA

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

I bought it refurbished a few days ago. My first impression-absolutely amazing lens. I own 35mm and 50mm 1.8, but 85mm 1.8g quality blows me away. At 1.8 already is VERY sharp. I took several portraits of my family and it was a huge WOW when I opened the pictures in computer. For portraits I would use 1.8 through 2.8, no need to go further. It's almost too sharp. I can't see how can somebody be disappointed with this lens. I expected it to be a little smaller (I like small, compact primes), but it's not a big deal. Thank you, Nikon.

A pro quality lens at a beginner's price!

By Nikonjim

from Hickory, NC

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

I can only reinforce what has already been said. This would be worth buying at twice the price. Great color, great focus, and super sharp.
