The Nikon 85mm f1.8G is a favoured by wedding photographers and other serious portrait shooters, thanks to its ability to create head and shoulder crops and its fast maximum aperture. This fast aperture is key to controlling the depth of field of your pictures, and it also allows you to work handheld for much of your shooting. The Silent Wave Motor, which drives the autofocus of this lens, performs swiftly and quietly, so you will not draw too much attention to yourself. As this stealth-like quality is highly sought-after when photographing people, you are going to love the short-telephoto focal length of this lens, and the space it allows between you and your model.

Make no mistake about it, this is a portrait photography lens. With its prime short-telephoto focal length and fast maximum aperture, the Nikon 85mm f1.8 G lens produces tightly-cropped, head and shoulder portraits, with tack sharp foregrounds and blurred-out backgrounds. You’ve seen images like this thousands of times in professional portfolios, and you have wondered how it’s done. Now the secret is out. Every professional has a lens just like this in their kit. The Nikon 85mm f1.8G.

Both FX and DX-compatible, on the smaller format this lens provides an equivalent focal length of 127mm. You will appreciate the longer reach provided on this format, but make sure you have room to step back and recompose, as it is quite long. For maintaining your professionalism, the Nikon 85mm f1.8G works swiftly and quietly, with thanks to the Silent Wave Motor which is driving the AF. Focussing is done internally, which helps the lens to remain as portable as possible when in use. The bright f1.8 aperture, which we have touch on earlier, is not just a selective focus tool, but is also handy when using the lens handheld.
