An update to Nikon’s legendary 85mm, f/1.4 portrait lens

Employing a re-designed optical system that includes Nikon’s exclusive Silent Wave Motor (SWM) and Nano Crystal Coat (N), the AF-S NIKKOR 85mm f/1.4G inherits 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). Engineered to inspire new levels of creativity and artistry, the AF-S NIKKOR 85mm f/1.4G will unleash the full potential of your Nikon D-SLR or HD-SLR—in the studio or in the field.

A portrait of perfection

Ultra-fast f/1.4 medium-telephoto lens

The AF-S NIKKOR 85mm f/1.4G is an advanced lens, optimized for today’s D-SLR and HD-SLR cameras. Its medium-telephoto angle-of-view is ideal for portraits and general photography in the studio or in the field. Its ultra-fast f/1.4 aperture with a rounded nine-blade diaphragm creates beautiful, natural background blur and enables shooting in dramatic low-light situations. Take your creativity to new heights.

Unmistakable Nikon quality

Advanced technology for amazing shots

Every detail was considered in the making of the AF-S NIKKOR 85mm f/1.4G, resulting in a remarkable, versatile lens. Nikon’s exclusive Silent Wave Motor (SWM) provides ultra-fast, ultra-quiet autofocus operation with seamless manual focus override. Nikon's Super Integrated Coating (SIC) and Nano Crystal Coat (N) work together to virtually eliminate ghosting and lens flare and to assure uniform color balance and contrast.

Simply The Best! This is simply the best lens I own, hands down. It is a great combination with the D800 for sharp images with incredible bokeh. I use this lens for both portraiture and landscape. September 30, 2012
Just Do It I could write paragraph after paragraph about this lens but everyone before me has said it, so lets keep this simple. There is nothing about this lens that you will be dissatisfied with...absolutely nothing. So if you're thinking about buying it, stop it and just do it. Twenty years from now it will be one of your most favourite and a classic that everyone talks about and wishes they had. September 12, 2012
This lens is great for making bokehlicious images!!! I've had the 85mm f/1.4G now for over a year and have been very satisfied with this lens. It was the second prime lens I purchased for my camera as I upgraded the gear in my bag and transitioned to prime lenses. My decision on the purchase was based on my wanting the focal length and desire for a fast lens. It was extremely useful photographing indoor sports using only available light. The focus is so sweet leaving the background bokehlicious at f/1.4. Stop down a bit to give a hint of the background or all the way to provide a sense of place without drawing attention away from the subject. The autofocus works fast enough as i photograph players on the court and most importantly for me - my dog having fun at the park or wherever we travel to. The 85mm f/1.4G is definitely worth purchasing for creating tasty images with delicious bokeh and crazy sharpness. The weight of all that glass is noticeable with it's impressive real estate of 77mm ring size. I appreciate the balance of glass, metal, and plastic that it doesn't feel burdensome to handle. I've used this lens a lot and it doesn't spend time collecting dust so I find it to be a great purchase for me. October 27, 2014
Great size and supper sharp ! I just received this lens yesterday after a six week wait due to a back order issue, however after using it for just one day it was well worth the wait. This lens so far is the best lens of this focal length that I have ever used. Great Lens! October 1, 2014
Best Portrait Lens This has become my go-to portrait lens. The image quality is amazing even when shooting wide open. Virtually zero distortion and focuses like a champ. One of the best lenses in my stable February 14, 2014
