Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 85mm f/1.8G Lens

Designed for use on Nikon's FX-format D-SLR cameras, this updated medium telephoto f/1.8 lens is great for shooting stills or HD videos. The AF-S NIKKOR 85mm f/1.8G features Nikon's Internal Focus (IF) system providing fast and quiet AF and produces sharp and clear images at all apertures. Its fast maximum aperture is ideal for taking stills or 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 has an effective field of view of 127mm.

Astonishing Low Light Results

This medium telephoto portrait lens is great for use in the studio, on set or for shooting in available light; producing stills or HD video of people with attractive skin tones and beautiful background blur. With its fast f/1.8 aperture, the AF-S NIKKOR 85mm f/1.8G will capture even low-light situations with stunning brilliance.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
