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.

Superb Portrait Lens This lens is a must for all portrait work. I was at a family wedding where I was not the wedding photographer and all the people who saw my images commented that they were superior to the official photographer's work. Crisp, tack sharp results are almost guaranteed. Be careful shooting @ 1.4 however, all the subjects must be on the same focal plane or some softness in some faces may occur. Expensive yes but worth every penny. June 11, 2012
One of the best portrait lens I use it on my D7000. I love the focal length on DX. It becomes approximately 135mm on FX. Sometime, I think this focal length is too long in small space, but then it will be fine if I just do the head shot or switch to my trusty 50mm 1.4D. If you are one of those who love portrait photography, I highly recommend it. February 8, 2012
Absolutely Superb Chunk of Glass I have a fairly large kit of Nikon products and I've been shooting Nikon since I switched from the P brand in 1968. Of all the Nikon glass I've owned, both my older 85 f/1.4 AFD and this new 85 f/1.4 AFS G have been a couple of legendary lenses which deserve that status of legendary. This new one will spend time in the studio but because of its fantastic IQ edge to edge, will also serve as an excellent tight landscape and superb street lens. When you nail a shot with this baby, you really nail it. The only down side is that it's a little slow in focusing. The reason is the focusing accuracy. Remember, this lens was designed typically as a portrait lens where accuracy trumps the speed of a less accurate lens. As this lens focuses, it moves then locks dead on without hunting. I'll take that. It required no fine tuning with my D300 or D700 which I felt was pretty amazing too. With regards to classic portraiture, I prefer the 85 over my 105 most of the time though I tend to shoot a lot of head shots. I'm just comfortable with that range both in the studio and outside. The micro contrast in skin tones is crazy beautiful requiring zero to very little editing of the RAW files from my defaults. The only thing I don't care for is the new two piece plastic hood. If it fits, I'll probably purchase the HN-31 Screw-On Lens Hood which is made of metal. If you want the very best, go ahead and get this model regardless on the hit on your wallet. You just will not regret it later. The 85 f/1.4 G doesn't disappoint ever if you do your part. January 6, 2012
Fantastic! You get what you pay for! This lens is nikon's finest 85mm offering yet. Supreme bokeh - a superior lens for portraits or just plain low light work such as basketball. I've been waiting for the older 1.4 to be updated and this lens was worth the wait! October 17, 2011
85mm 1.4G - Among the greatest lenses ever made. This lens is the most practical 85mm lens every made, taking its uses far beyond that of portrait photography. You get the typically amazing, creamy bokeh at larger apertures that the other wide aperture 85mm lenses from Nikon, Canon, Zeiss, Sigma will provide, but you also get superb corner to corner sharpness when stopped down that no other 85mm lens rivals. Get a look at the MTF charts, rent it, or just buy one. So happy to own this baby. Terrific for general and street photography, and of course GORGEOUS portraits. September 13, 2011
Great Lens I had Sigma 85mm f1.4 for a few days and I didn't like it because it had too much C.A. problems. I returned it and I bought this Nikon Lens. Simply put this lens is smaller, lighter, quieter and shaper without too much C.A. than Sigma. I am a happy owner of this lens. August 2, 2011
Amazing bokeh and perfect focal lenght! I am a wedding photographer and was looking for a lens that would give me that "creme de leche" bokeh effect. The subjects just pop out of the page. Lens is a tad slow on focusing, nothing like the speed of the 70-200 vr II, but it does the job. As far as low light photography it dominates second to none. Canon has the f1.2, but the bokeh is equal and the nikon is much faster. Def buy, every penny will be worth the investments to bring your photography to the next level July 21, 2011
The results are excellent!!! This is one surefooted piece of glass that rarely misses. Every time I use it I feel like I’ve got something special in my hands. The photographs always look sharp and the bokeh is dreamy. It’s not the fastest focusing lens I have, but it’s one of the most accurate I’ve ever used, tested, rented or borrowed. If you’re serious about getting great results, this is a must have. July 10, 2011
Fantastic Lens This lens is very nice. I knew it would be good but I was still blown away at how well it worked in low light. Pictures are crisp and focus is perfect. Has a little problem locking on to focus in dark situations but other than that it is perfect. If you are thinking about it you won't be disappointed when you purchase it. May 18, 2011
Still picking myself up I don't use this lens as often as I use the 24 f/1.4 --but when I put this 85 on my D700 I simply fall over. Then it seems to be the only lens I use for a while, until I go wide again. It's that good. Outstanding clarity. Beautiful mood and bokeh. I say mood because this lens also seems to deliver it! AF is rock solid even in low light and low contrast. I was lucky and got one of the first copies of this lens--and it was perfect--no issues with it at all. I love this lens. I really do--and you will too. It's expensive, sure, but you get what you pay for. And while all my lenses are sharp -- this one is the king of sharpness. May 12, 2011
Stellar Lenses This is a must have product. This lens produces stellar photos especially regarding creating creaming bokeh and no coma. This is the longest focal length f1.4 in the line up. The only lens that produces better sharpness and bokeh is the 200 f2 (love that lens too!). The autofocus is accurate at f1.4 every time and never misses (do some research, that is amazing). It is not lighting fast, but accuracy is more important than speed. Once you use this in field you will never go back. I have this lens on my camera more often than anything else (indoors, outdoors, kids, portraits, & select sports). April 30, 2011
This is a solid winner! My experience with this lens has been most gratifying. It optically out performs all of my other Nikon 85MM f1.4 lenses by a considerable margin. It is a very well constructed lens. April 15, 2011
Great Lens for portraiture The new Nikkor 85mm F1.4G lens is great to work with. I found it to be great in low light situations for short telephoto use as well as in portraiture sessions, with and without the use of flash. Highly recommended. April 14, 2011
New Favorite Lens! This lens has instantly become my new favorite! The bokeh and images it produces are the best I've ever been able to produce, and it exudes confidence in my picture taking. I'm very happy with my 85 f/1.4G, and highly recommend it if you want the best. April 14, 2011
Excellent portrait lens Maybe I have previous version of 85mm/1.4 (I have it more than 1 year) but this lens makes incredibly sharp snaps. It focuses without any troubles on my D3 model. What a pity all lenses are far not as good. I have excellent portraits with this lens on D3 made on really poor light. You can take it to any theatre or rock concert without any flash and you have more than good chance for excellent exciting snaps. If you have lot of money and you do not know what to do with it, buy it! Price use to be a frequent disease of Nikkor lenses... April 14, 2011
Razor Sharp - Edge to Edge Phenomenal prime lens. The bokeh was creamy and great separation from a subject, as if the picture was in 3D. Excellent in low light situation. A must have for taking portrait. Outstanding piece of glass! March 20, 2011
Best of the Best This Lens is one of Nikons Best. I have no complaints about it at all...period.....well it was expensive. I feel that the portraits I get from this lens are better than anything else I have ever shot with. Its sturdy built, great manual focusing, and industry beating optics are a cut above. Most people cant tell the difference between this and the 70-200 portraits unless they are looking....but when they are looking they are impressed. March 2, 2011
Terrific Lens I got rid of my Noct f/1.2 to get this for low light street photography mostly. Slight loss of speed, but I no longer have problems with sensor reflections. I am using this on my D700 and it is easily the sharpest lens I have. Some effort is required to get it to auto-focus wide open, but that is not unexpected. I switch to manual if I have to and it does a good job there. Creamy, creamy bokeh gives images that stand out in the crowd. January 23, 2011
Great lens This new 85mm lens is superb in every way. I purchased this lens to replace the 85 1.4 d. The build quality is solid and I found the focus to be quick and accurate. The sharpness and bokeh are absolutely exquisite, razor sharp-so sharp in fact that you may have to retouch some things you wouldn't normally see. Worth every penny. November 12, 2010
Professional Lens I call it professional lens because you need to know how to handle it. This lens works great when you use it for certain conditions that a seasoned photographer would recognize easily, for example this lens is superb at shooting what i call catalog portarits with good light, i shot some that dropped my jaw. But it won't just shoot anything alone it needs you to take good decisions, the f1.4 will help to achieve small DoF that looks great but it dosen't mean that you will shoot a candle in the dark and it will be perfect, you need a tripod for that. If you are used to vr you will feel it. Here you can find examples of good and bad pictures I took from it. The lens did its job, the quality of the pictures when shoot correctly are simply amazing! October 22, 2010
not the worst lens I use super nice lens, I use it for getting great facebook shoots and the good news is that it has the quality to keep up with the others on Facebook September 26, 2010
State of the art sharpness and color An 85mm f/1.4 lens is about portraiture, or so it is often said. Nikon describes it as a “classic portrait lens”. But in truth it is not really a “classic” portrait lens other than focal length, because its performance is distinctly better than many classic designs, with outstanding sharpness across the frame even wide open at f/1.4. The color, contrast and sharpness even wide open at f/1.4 at least meet, and perhaps exceed, any existing 85mm f/1.4 lens on the market today, including Zeiss and Canon. A truly impressive performer. Although an 85mm is ostensibly for portraiture, this new Nikon 85mm will make an outstanding landscape and general purpose lens. September 25, 2010
The Legend Continues Having used the 85mm f1.4 AF, 105mm f2.5 and 2.8 macro, this latest Nikon offering beats them all with respect to DOF, edge sharpness and focussing speed. Beautiful bokeh that surpasses all previous portrait lenses. Neutral color, little glare. The very best. Highly recommended jewel for amateurs and essential workhorse for pros. Get one now! September 24, 2010
great body and great features love the features and i love the body.. any pro will love this lense.. August 22, 2010
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
A melhor de todas Comprei em janeiro minha 85mm e entre outras que tenho hoje, é incomparável a qualidade, vale muito a pena cada centavo investido. May 27, 2014
Uma das melhores lentes Nikon Possuo 3 lentes rapidas da Nikon entre outras da marca, porem, a 85mm se destaca de longe como a pequena notável de todo o kit. Trabalho com full frame e o prazer no resultado da união das características entre o corpo é a lenta é de excelência. Sua aberração é mínima, quase imperceptível e sua luminosidade da liberdade e segurança para fotos mais desafiadoras. Vale realmente a pena. Para mim é a melhor fixa da Nikon. May 23, 2014
OMG Chromatic Aberration. I bought this lens just before a working trip to Italy. I was to do a shoot of a model at a vineyard in Tuscany. There were to be shots both inside the bodega, the facilities and in the countryside. I normally use the Nikon 70-200/f2.8 in this kind of situation, but I wanted this lens because I'm not always happy with the performance of the 70-200 (I'm not in love with the bokeh). I also went with the Nikon 24-70/2.8 and the Sigma 35/1.4 (which performed brilliantly). The 85/1.4g performed brilliantly closed down, but the shots I took around f2 outside with high speed sync in open shade were riddled with hideous green and magenta chromatic aberration that took tons of work to remove in post. It was absolutely painful and really ugly. I am including a bit of a slightly blurry outtake so that you can see just how bad it was. It's all in the hair, the glass and it follows the line of her jaw. Ugh. The final photos looked really spectacular, but the work involved to get there was unpleasant. So I guess my review is mixed. If you shoot wide open outside, be prepared to deal with the consequences. I guess that I'm disappointed, but that won't keep me from using the lens. July 31, 2013

Answer: 
Hey, the 85/1.4 AF-S is a really nice lens, and it has its uses, but pairing it with a TC is not one of the ones that comes to mind. But I know where you're coming from, wanting a fast, long prime for indoor sports and such. Consider instead the 105 or 135/2 DC lenses for your purpose. I've shot a number of cheerleading competitions using the 105/2 DC, and it works very well for the purpose.

Answer: 
According to the Teleconverter compatability chart that can be found on Nikon's Teleconverter page this lens is not compatable. However, both the 100DC and 135DC lenses are f/2 lenses within the range you are looking. Both have incredible optics and might serve you well. The 135 DC f/2 sells for $1395, so it would be significantly cheaper than the 85 f/1.4 with a TC. In fact you could buy both the 135 DC f/2 and the 85mm f/1.8 for less than the 85mm f/1.4G & a TC-14E.

No, B&H, Adorama, and any other major retailers don't carry this lens. I had to search the ends of the earth to find this thing. I recommend calling every camera small store in the U.S till find one (smaller cities like st.louis, milwakee, etc.).

This is important since I had to pay nearly retails to even get one used. If they come out with a VR version that has all the same performance, then I would expect mine to lose a lot of its value. That is if VR can be done and still put out a lens of this quality. Did Nikon find that it could not be done or was it more of a paper work thing?

Answer: 
Nikon's shorter primes do not have VR and I don't think they will come out with a new 85mm 1.4 with it. The new 85mm 1.8 they just recently released doesn't have it . At the shorter focal length you don't need VR unless you on something that is moving.

I am considering purchasing the 85mm 1.8g and a wide angle 28mm 1.8 for less than I would pay for the 85mm 1.4g lens. I am a semi pro portrait shooter and I would really like some insight to decide weither the image quality of this lens will really make a difference in results over the 85 1.8g. I shoot with a D700. Thanks for any responses.

Answer: 
DxOMark, just put out a test on this lens. In a nutshell, this specific lens tests out to be the sharpest lens you can put on ANY Nikon. That includes Zeiss or Sigma! Also, you have a 9-blade rounded diaphragm on the 1.4 and a 7-blade on the 1.8. If you compare the Bokeh on both, the 1.4 will be better. Nano-Crystal coating is another difference. This is a HUGE plus when shooting back-lit portraits outdoors. Someone else mentioned build quality, and part of that quality is the inclusion of the rear dust gasket that better protects against the elements.

Is it worth the difference in price? That depends on the overall quality you want to hand your clients. I think so...however, the 1.8 IS a great bargain because it is VERY capable.

After renting this lens a few times, I sold my 1.4D. However, now the lens is back-ordered. Hopefully, as an NPS member, I can get one in my hands sooner than later. ;)
