Fast aperture, medium telephoto portrait lens
for great stills and D-Movie HD videos Designed for use on Nikons FX-format
D-SLR cameras, this updated medium telephoto f/1.8 lens is designed
for shooting stills or D-Movie HD videos. The AF-S NIKKOR 85mm f/1.8G
features Nikons Internal Focus (IF) system providing fast and quiet AF and
produces sharp and clear images at all apertures. Its fast maximum aperture is
perfect for taking stills or D-Movie HD videos under ideal lighting, in low
light, head and shoulder portraiture, weddings or concerts. When mounted on a
DX-format D-SLR, the AF-S NIKKOR 85mm f/1.8G AF-S has an effective field
of view of 127mm.
Imagine being able 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 non-extending lens barrel. This
allows for a more compact, lightweight construction as well as a closer focusing
distance. A significant innovation in AF lens technology. Nikon's Silent Wave
Motor uses ultrasonic (too quiet) vibrations rather than a gear system to focus
the lens, providing extremely smooth, silent and precise auto focus operation.
When fine manual focusing is needed, simply rotate the lens focus ring M/A mode
allows you to seamlessly override the AF system with virtually no time lag.
Nikon's Super Integrated Coating enhances light transmission efficiency and
offers superior colour consistency and reduced lens flare.
In terms of features, the Nikon AF-S Nikkor
85mm f/1.8G offers almost all that you need from a prime lens. The lens has

a handy distance scale. The AF-S 85mm f/1.8 is lightweight, fast, and
easy to tote around. Weighing in at 0.93 lb less than the venerable 85mm f/1.4

hesitation - it's small enough and light enough to take along everywhere!
