Our take on the Nikon AF Nikkor 85mm f/1.8D Lens by Crutchfield's Dave Bar
Pair Nikon's superbly built AF 85mm f/1.8 lens with your Nikon SLR, and it may become your go-to lens. This "prime" or fixed-length lens delivers sharp, detailed images, with smooth background blur that makes your subjects pop. Its large maximum aperture of f/1.8 takes in lots of light, letting you "freeze" moving subjects, even when shooting indoors without a flash. If you need a lens that snaps exceptional portraits, yet has enough telephoto power to capture action scenes in the mid-distance, you've found it.
Nice crisp lens. I take care of my lenses, so the plastic is fine with me. Images are crisp. Mounted on my D800 it's a winning combination. Even the most Drab subject evokes interest.
