Nikon AF 85 Review

“What you are looking through”

nikon nikkor 85 f/1.8

The apperature opens about the size of a silver dolar.
This is another lens that I bought to substitute the 18-70mm lens that I had for a year. For about the same price you can ditch the 18-70mm middle of the road lens and pick up the 50mm 1.8/f and this 85mm 1.8/f. It will make you happy.
This lens is ideal for portraiture for two main reasons. Its focal length and its apperature. The focal length not only gets rid of distortion but also allows you to get a nice portrait without being right up in the person’s face. The apperature allows you to get a shallow enough depth of field (how far is in focus) that background distractions are blurred out. It also allows you to shoot in low light conditions.
All around a great lens.
