    Nikon AF-S 85mm F1.4G IF Auto Focus Nikkor Lens: The highly expected Nikon 85mm f/1.4G AF-S is a professional-grade lens that is specially designed for portraits, studio and wedding photographers that need an ultra-fast, premium lens with a large aperture of f/1.4 for low-light circumstances and low depth of field to isolate subjects from the background, without compromising image quality and sharpness. The Nikon 85mm f/1.4G is built to work awfully well on both FX and DX sensors, yielding very sharp results in the centre frame. Featuring a totally new optical design and a built-in Silent Wave focus Motor, it also includes Nikon's top-end goodies including a 9-bladed diaphragm, Nano Crystal coating for the reduction of flare, a magnesium alloy body shell and weather sealing. Just like most Nikon professional lenses, the Nikon 85mm f/1.4G has a 77mm filter thread and is also sealed beside dust and tough weather conditions for outdoors field use. Nikon 85mm f/1.4G AF-S features Nikon's exclusive M/A mode, that permits switching from auto-focus to manual operation with almost no time delay — even during AF servo operation and regardless of AF mode in use.

    Imagine being able to focus a lens without it altering in size. Nikon's IF technology enables just that. All internal optical movement is limited to the interior of the non-extending lens barrel. This allows for a more compact, lightweight construction as well as a closer focusing distance. Also, a smaller and lighter focusing lens group is employed to make sure faster focusing. The IF system is featured in most NIKKOR telephoto and selected NIKKOR zoom lenses. The AF-S NIKKOR 85mm f/1.4G features a newly-developed optical system with 10 elements in 9 groups and incorporates Nikon’s exclusive anti-reflection Nano Crystal coat, significantly reducing ghosting and flare to deliver rich, high contrast images even under the most testing lighting conditions.

    As is often the case, there is much more to how a lens performs than the resolution alone. In this case, Nikon's new 85mm f/1.4 certainly confirms itself competent of producing images of very high resolution when stopped down a little.
    Even wide open, the images produced by this optic are more than fit for purpose. In the centre the resolution is still good, and the falloff to out of focus is very smooth and soft, leading to very flattering images. Moreover, on the plus side, the lens is intelligent to focus accurately enough to make the bright maximum aperture useful, even if a little care has to be taken from time to time.
