AF-S NIKKOR 85mm f/1.4G
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

Have used this lens twice, I'm in love with it.
First time using this lens was easy. Put it on my brand new D-800, ( last camera was a D-7000 ). Every picture taken was great. The back ground out of focus but the colors of the fall leaves were just what i was looking for. This is a great portrait lens, I'll be useing this lens a lot.

This is a great lens with fantastic bokeh qualities. I use it with my D4 and am able to achieve desired results with great consistency.

In my opinion the best 85mm I have seen.
I am semi pro in that I earn money to support my Camera addiction and the Nikon 85mm f/1.4G is in my opinion the best glass I have seen even in a medium format equivalent lens this is one of the fastest and cleanest portrait and medium focal length lenses I have owned in a 35mm FX format, Super FAST in low light Sports as in Basketball, and a superb portrait lens with beautiful Bokeh, I couple it to my D3 and D3x and the results are breath taking.
