The Nikon 85mm f/1.8G AF-S

The Nikon 85mm f/1.8G AF-S is a compact, fast-aperture lens for Nikon DSLRs. Its reduced size and weight make it easy to keep in your bag at all times, yet it still offers fantastic image quality. The f/1.8 aperture allows for smooth background blur and subject isolation, perfect for portraiture. It’s compatible with both FX and DX cameras, including those without AF motors in-camera (D3100, D5100, etc.). This lens has full-time manual focus for easy adjustment and a dedicated AF/MF switch for a quick switch to full manual focus. It’s also great for video as well, offering silent autofocus using Nikon’s Silent Wave AF motor. The Nikon 85mm f/1.8G AF-S is a great low-cost alternative to the 85mm f/1.4G.

Roger's Take

Canon shooters talk about the Canon "Holy Trinity" of prime lenses. Nikon does them one better: Nikon has the Holy Trinity of excellent but inexpensive prime lenses. The 85 f/1.8G is the longest of those. Very reasonably priced but still with superb image quality in a lens small enough for you to put in a jacket pocket just in case you need a fast prime.

Superb as a long portrait lens or a short indoor sports lens, fast enough to use at a wedding reception, and really quite excellent as a long street and walk-around lens. This one I recommend without reservations.
