Nikon 85mm f1.8G - A compact medium telephoto prime lens

This compact Nikon medium telephoto prime lens is fantastic for producing tightly-cropped portraiture, a desirable feature for professionals, wedding photographers and your casual shooter. Weighing just 350 grams and measuring just over 3 inches in length this Nikon 85mm lens is small and unobtrusive enough to be positioned on the front of your camera for long periods of time, and it will not spook or intimidate your subjects.

Beautiful portraits shot in dim surroundings

Well suited to a wide range of lighting conditions including very dim interiors, this lens features a fast, bright f1.8 max aperture. This lens lets in extra light, allowing you to shoot at faster shutter speeds when the light gets low; sharper, blur-free handheld images are a given.
Another trait of this large aperture is the ability to produce a shallow depth of field in your photographs. Backgrounds are reduced to a dream-like bluer with ease, meaning your sharp and in focus foregrounds are all the more catching. sample image

Accurate autofocus, from a motor that won't turn heads

For focussing on your subjects you are afforded great flexibility in the form of silent and fast autofocus and manual focus override. The Silent Wave Motor included in the Nikon 85mm f1.8G features traits that are desirable for video and still shooting alike; fast, quiet and smooth, all the while achieving extremely accurate focus.
If you wish to take matters into your own hands or are practicing selective focus, the Nikon 85mm allows for full-time manual focus override in M/A mode, allowing you to simply turn the focus ring, without changing any settings on the lens

Sturdy yet slight construction

Maintaining its compact form at all times, the Nikon 85mm f1.8G has internal focusing. This means the lens does not change size during AF operation and is therefore consistently compact. This feature also makes using polarising filters a lot easier and allows for closer focussing distances.
To combat imperfections such as internal reflections and provide extremely accurate colour reproduction, this 85mm lens contains Nikon's Super Integrated coating; sure to offer edge-to-edge, high quality images of a range of subject matter.
