Nikon AF-S Nikkor 85mm f/1.4G Lens

Featuring an all new re-designed optical system with Nikon’s exclusive Silent Wave Motor and Nano Crystal Coating, the Nikon AF-S Nikkor 85mm f/1.4G Lens borrows from its predecessor’s ultra-fast f/1.4 maximum aperture and rounded nine-blade diaphragm for superior depth-of-field control and background blur (bokeh).

Purposely engineered to inspire, the Nikon AF-S Nikkor 85mm f/1.4G Lens aims to encourage photography hobbyists and professionals alike to achieve new levels of creativity and artistry. Unleash the full potential of your Nikon DSLR or HD-SLR camera whether you're in the studio or in the field with the Nikon AF-S Nikkor 85mm f/1.4G Lens. 

Optimized for DSLR and HDSLR 

The advanced AF-S Nikkor 85mm f/1.4G Lens from Nikon is optimized for use with today’s D-SLR and HD-SLR cameras. Perfect for capturing stunning portraits and general photography in the studio or in the field, this medium-telephoto angle-of-view lens employs an ultra-fast f/1.4 aperture.

Incorporated into its design is a rounded nine-blade diaphragm that creates beautiful, natural background blur (bokeh) and enables shooting in unfavorable low-light environments. 

N - Nano Crystal Coating 

Featuring Nikon's exclusive anti-reflective Nano Crystal coating, the Nikon AF-S Nikkor 85mm f/1.4G Lens virtually eliminates internal lens element reflections across a wide range of wavelengths. The result is sharper image results with superior contrast and true to life color reproduction. 

M/A - Manual to Automatic Switching 

Switching from automatic to manual focusing with virtually no lag time with the Nikon AF-S Nikkor 85mm f/1.4G Lens. Simply turning the focusing ring on the lens to go either fully automated and let the lens do all the work or fully manual to tweak the focusing to your preference. 

IF - Internal Focusing 

When you're recording videos, you can benefit from the internal focus design of the Nikon AF-S Nikkor 85mm f/1.4G Lens. This thoughtful construction minimizes the appearance of focus breathing, a nuisance of non-cinema lenses that can ruin otherwise perfect videos. Eliminates the need of having to use software to try to salvage usable footage during post production. 

SWM - Silent Wave Motor

Unlike other telephoto lenses on the market that employ a gear system for lens focusing, the Nikon AF-S Nikkor 85mm f/1.4G Lens uses a Silent Wave Motor (SWM). Ultrasonic vibrations focus the lens to provide incredibly smooth, silent and precise autofocus operation.

This comes in handy when quietness is a must when shooting such as when you're capturing images during a piano recital. 

SIC - Super Integrated Coating 

The optical elements of the Nikon AF-S Nikkor 85mm f/1.4G Lens features the brand's advanced multi-layer coating. This treatment ensures exceptional optical performance and minimizes the appearance of ghosting and flaring to produce breathtaking image results.
