Fast aperture, medium telephoto portrait lens for exceptional stills and HD video

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.

Flattering portraits in any light

Get 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.

Beautiful background blur

Achieve more natural depth of field

When you need to isolate the subject from the background, as when shooting portraits—indoors or outdoors—stills or HD video, the AF-S NIKKOR 85mm f/1.8G renders a beautiful, natural background blur (Bokeh) at its wider aperture settings.

The beauty is in the details

Designed for digital with superior performance

Nikon's Super Integrated Coating (SIC) enhances light transmission efficiency and offers superior color consistency and reduced flare. Nikon's Silent Wave Motor (SWM) assures fast, accurate and quiet autofocus as well as full compatibility including autofocus with Nikon's complete line up of FX- and DX-format cameras.
Internal Focusing icon

Internal Focusing

Imagine being able to focus a lens without it changing in size. Nikon's IF technology enables just that. All internal optical movement is limited to the interior of the nonextending lens barrel. This allows for a more compact, lightweight construction as well as a closer focusing distance.
Silent Wave Motor icon

Silent Wave Motor

Nikon's AF-S technology is yet another reason professional photographers like NIKKOR telephoto lenses. AF-S NIKKOR lenses feature Nikon's SWM which converts "traveling waves" into rotational energy to focus the optics. This enables high-speed autofocusing that's extremely accurate and super quiet.
M/A mode icon

M/A mode

AF-S NIKKOR lenses feature Nikon's exclusive M/A mode, that allows switching from autofocus to manual operation with virtually no time lag—even during AF servo operation and regardless of AF mode in use.
Nikon Super Integrated Coating icon

Nikon Super Integrated Coating

To enhance the performance of its optical lens elements, Nikon employs an exclusive multilayer lens coating that helps reduce ghost and flare to a negligible level. Nikon Super Integrated Coating achieves a number of objectives, including minimized reflection in the wider wavelength range and superior color balance and reproduction.

**As determined by Nikon performance tests.

Great lens and very versatile Just upgraded to an FX body and so still experimenting, but have found a terrific use for this lens on my old DX body. It works great as a semi-telephoto lens, which I use to snap awesome action pics of kids' hockey games! The arenas are often dimly lit compared to NHL games, but this lens lets me take bright, crisp pics at 1/500 of a second from behind the glass. At larger apertures, the skaters appear so crisp and colorful, and really pop against the soft backgrounds. Lens not long enough to shoot from stands or bench; guess I am going to have to bite the bullet and get the 70-200 mm f2.8 and pop that on my D610. August 16, 2014
DO IT Since purchasing this lens I have found it very difficult to switch lenses throughout the day...this baby works too well! The autofocus is nearly always accurate and moves at a decent speed. The f1.8 creates some beautiful bokeh thanks to a 7 bladed rounded diaphragm. and I always love a little bit of weather sealing. Youll just keep shooting with this lens.... April 6, 2014
Perfect lens for portraits This is a great lens for shooting portraits! At the zoom length, there's no noticeable distortion and can do beautiful things at very large apertures making it perfect for portraits. I've had it for a few weeks and done a couple of shoots. The only criticism would be that it's auto-focusing is not always quick or accurate. March 24, 2014
Tack Sharp Very sharp lens. The price is very reasonable for a tack sharp lens such as this. Auto focus is fast enough in most cases. Color is excellent and coma almost non-existent. Overall you get a lot for your dollar with this lens. On a D800 this lens got a 40 score on the DXO. Not many lenses score higher. A must have if you wish to capture extreme detail or maximize a D800's potential. March 11, 2014
Fine Fast 85mm Lens Although I have at least three other Nikkor lenses that cover 85mm (classic 85mm manual focus f/2, 24-120mm f/4, and AF-S 80-400mm G) the f/1.8 provides much larger aperture and very fine Bokeh for selective focus work. Very good resolution wide open, even the corners, and excellent resolution corner to corner from f/2.8 until diffraction softening starting about f/11. And virtually no distortion. Although it's not a "gold ring" Nikkor, it's optical performance and mechanical feel are excellent -- manual focusing is precise with no play in the focus ring, and auto-focus is very fast on a D800e. Definitely a 'must' prime lens for any photographer wanting an excellent short-medium telephoto. January 22, 2014

Answer: 
Fast primes like the 85mm f/1.8G usually do not have VR. VR is used to stabilize a lens during long exposures. A fast lens like the 85mm f/1.8G allows a shorter exposure than a slower lens such as an f/4. The advantage of a fast lens is that unlike a VR lens, a fast lens can stop motion under low light conditions. Adding VR to this lens would increase the cost and size of this lens significantly.
In order to achieve the wide aperture and shallow depth of field in a reasonably priced and sized package, VR is not included. In addition, VR can cause some problems for some photographers when shooting at the shallow depth of field as allowed by this lens. Consequently, many photographers looking to purchase a lens like this would prefer the economy and performance of a non-VR lens.

For photographers who do not need the shallow depth of field or who do not need to stop action under low light conditions, the AF-S DX Micro Nikkor 85mm f/3.5G ED VR offers VR and close-up capability on DX cameras. Similarly the AF-S NIKKOR 24-85mm f/3.5-4.5G ED VR also provides the 85mm focal length in a zoom that is FX compatible.

Answer: 
G — Designation for lenses without an aperture ring, indicated after the f-number in the name. G lenses retain the mechanical diaphragm coupling of other Nikkors, but the aperture setting can only be controlled by the camera body. Only autofocus bodies with command dials are capable of controlling G lenses. Older autofocus bodies will work with G lenses in shutter priority and program modes with full opened aperture.[2][3] Some recent G lenses feature a weatherproofing gasket around the mounting flange. G lenses otherwise have the same characteristics as D lenses.

Answer: 
With proper technique you can do portrait with any of the three lenses you have. The 35mm will give better DOF but you are a little close to the subject.

Answer: 
When the "Existing Account" message pops up there should be a link that says "Get Account Assistance Here". Click on the "Get Account Assistance Here" link and enter your email address in the email field under "Reset Password" and click "Reset My Password". An email will then be sent to you with instructions for resetting your password. After resetting your password you can then log in to Nikonusa.com and register your lens.

You may also call 1-800-NikonUS to speak with a support representative for help registering your lens.

I'm looking to upgrade my Nikon DSRL camera and was looking at Nikon's newest additions. I'm a bit confused by the comments on the Technical Specs- "Compatible Lenses section", where most of the newly released cameras do not support the autofocus feature of the G type lenses. Would you please point out which Nikon DSRL camera supports all the functions offered with this lens?

Answer: 
The AF-S 85mm 1.8g will work fully with all Nikon DSLR's. It has a built in focus motor (the - S means silent wave motor) The G designation means it has no aperture ring, it is not needed as the aperture is adjusted by the camera. The AF 85mm 1.8d is the one that has auto focus compatibility issues due to a lack of a built in focus motor. It can only be used on those DSLR's that have a built in focus drive such as the D90, D300, D7100, D7000 D600 D800 D4 D3 etc. The lower end D3000, D3100,D3200, D5000,D5100,D5200 do no have focus drive motors.
