The Nikon 85mm f/1.4 G AF-S lens is a professional fixed focal length short telephoto full frame coverage lens for Nikon digital (and late model film) cameras. An absolute staple for photographers wanting maximum image pop, it's a thoroughly uncompromising optical design that delivers superior images. In addition to a tremendous amount of high quality glass, a key optical features is Nikon's state of the art Nano Crystal Coating , the [N] badge proudly displayed on the exterior. Nano Crystal Coating sets the 85mm f/1.4 G apart from other lenses, it's a next generation optical coating technology that reduces internal reflections far beyond what was previously posible with conventional multicoatings to help maximize contrast and color.
With a maxium aperture of f/1.4 is is possible to get portraits with impressively shallow depth of field and also produce the best images from challenging lighting. Focusing speed is quick thanks to a Silent Wave AF-S motor and full time manual focus overrride provides an alternative without having to fumble for a focus switch
The bokeh does not disappoint. While it's a great portrait lens but with such superb image quality it's happily used for any shot the focal length fits. For the photographer who wants to stand out and set subject matter and their work apart from the background the Nikon 85mm f/1.4 G AF-S is magnificent.
