Picture Perfect Every Time!

Comments about Nikon 85mm F/1.8 D AF Lens:
I purchased this product specifically to photograph indoor gymnastics meets and indoor volleyball tournaments for my kids. (No flash allowed) I have been so pleased with the crisp, clear photo's that I have been able to get, as well as amazing shots that caught a completely still moment. No blurring so far! The lens is fast. I am using this lens on the Nikon D7000. The only issue I have had is with the lens hood - it screws on, and does not work with the lens cap on, so I have to put it on only when I know I will be taking multiple shots. Honestly, though, for the quality of pictures I am getting, I can deal with the hood!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I'm using this lens for portrait and close ups * flowers/insects/etc..I love the fact that I can control my depth of field, which is one of the reasons I purchased it.I will be using this as one specific lens in taking some senior portraits :)

Sweet piece of glass!

This lens has been a great addition to my arsenal. My portraits have great bokeh and it gives the faces a wonderful, creamy look. I would recommend this to anyone.
85 mm F/1.8 D AF Lens by Nikon
from New York, NY
This is my favorite lens so far. I use this to photograph anything and everything, forces me to use my feet to adjust composition. Great for low-light photography too. The only flaw is obvious - just one focal length, and sometimes you will encounter a shot you just can't get quite right with only one lens.

This lens is tac sharp from edge to edge. I shoot quite a bit on location and find this lens to be perfect for indoor shots in large rooms or outdoors using ambient light. Weather it's weddings or portraits I use this lens for good balance of subject and background. It focuses quickly and delivers. Highly recommended.
from Colorado Springs, CO
I trotted out the 85 mm 1.8 last weekend at a show and with just a small sample to go from I'd have to say that overall the lens performed well and met my expectations.I had been using the 50 mm 1.4 for several shows and was mightily impressed with the performance I got out of it, but I needed a lense with a bit more reach due to where I was forced to stand to take the shots. The 85 mm gives me the perfect distance to nail down headshots and the lens is fast enough to stop just about any action going on. The bokeh produced was fantastic!
