Nikon 85mm Nikkor f1.8G AF-S Lens
The Nikon AF-S Nikkor 85mm f/1.8G is a fast aperture medium-telephoto portrait lens thats optimised for use with full-frame Nikon digital SLR cameras. It provides an effective focal length of 127.5mm when used with a Nikon DX-format SLR. The Nikon AF-S Nikkor 85mm f/1.8G VR lens features a Silent Wave Motor (SWM) for quiet and accurate auto focusing, two focus modes, M/A (manual-priority auto focus) and M (manual focus), an iris diaphragm with seven rounded blades for a soft rendering of the out-of-focus areas, and a weather-sealed rubber lens mount. The optical formula comprises 9 elements in 9 groups and the Nikon AF-S Nikkor 85mm f/1.8G is fully compatible with entry level D-SLRs that do not have a built in auto focus motor.

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 built-in auto focus motor that allows AF operation on every Nikon DX camera body, including entry-level offerings like the D3100 or D5100. The lens also 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 shooters that favours prime lenses can toss this optic in their gear bag without hesitation - it's small enough and light enough to take along everywhere!
