A legendary portrait lens

This renowned, ultra-fast f/1.4 prime lens opens up a world of artistic potential. Optimized for FX-format D-SLRs, it combines superior NIKKOR optical properties and advanced Nikon lens technologies for truly exceptional performance in the field or in the studio, whether shooting stills or HD videos. Its versatile medium-telephoto 85mm angle-of-view and shallow depth of field deliver razor-sharp detail, high contrast, true color reproduction and beautiful background blur (bokeh) for close-up subjects, portraits, nature images and more.

Exceptional portraits and videos

The ultra-fast AF NIKKOR 85mm f/1.4D IF delivers photos and HD videos with remarkable sharpness and beautiful shallow depth-of-field, even in low-light situations. Its medium-telephoto angle-of-view—a favorite among portrait photographers—will inspire creative new compositions. Manual aperture control lets you make smooth adjustments during Live View shooting, a major advantage for HD video recording. Expect truly exceptional results in every shooting situation.

Flagship NIKKOR lens

Built on a legacy of outstanding optical performance, the AF NIKKOR 85mm f/1.4D IF shines as one of NIKKOR’s flagship lenses. Its A-M switch allows for fast switching between AF and manual focusing modes. Nikon’s Internal Focusing (IF) technology enables precise focusing without the lens size changing, allowing for more compact, lightweight lens construction and closer minimum focusing distances. The Super Integrated Coating (SIC) prevents lens flare and ghosting, even at wide aperture settings. And the lens’ rounded nine-blade diaphragm creates a more attractive, natural background blur effect.
