The AF-S Nikkor 85mm f/1.8G Lens from Nikon is a fast, compact FX-format prime medium telephoto lens. Though optimized for FX-format DSLR cameras, the lens is equally adept at serving any Nikon DX-format DSLR. The combination of its mid-range telephoto design and a fast f/1.8 aperture make it a very good option for shooting both still images and HD video in low light scenarios. To be had light shooters will love the wide-open effect when shooting intimate portraits, in-focus subjects will stay sharp, at the same time as distracting backgrounds will melt into a pleasing soft blur. When mounted on a DX-format DSLR, this 85mm prime delivers an apparent focal length of approximately 127mm.

Flattering portraits in any light.
Beautiful background blur.
The beauty is in the main points.
Imagine having the ability to focus a lens without it changing in size. Nikon’s IF technology enables just that. All internal optical movement is limited to the interior of the nonextending lens barrel. This allows for a more compact, lightweight construction in addition to a closer focusing distance.
Nikon Silent Wave Motor
A significant innovation in AF lens technology, Nikon’s Silent Wave Motor uses ultrasonic (inaudible) vibrations—reasonably than a gear system—to focus the lens, providing incredibly smooth, silent and precise autofocus operation.
M/A Focus Mode Switch
When fine manual focusing is needed, simply rotate the lens focus ring—M/A mode permits you to seamlessly override the AF system with virtually no time lag.
Super Integrated Coating
Nikon’s Super Integrated Coating enhances light transmission efficiency and offers superior color consistency and reduced lens flare.
