Nikon 85mm f/1.8D AF

Available Today

A small, fast, and sharp near telephoto prime. Often used for head and shoulder portraits, it’s also a nice concert or indoor sports lens.

Please note: This lens does not have a built-in autofocus motor. Therefore, it is not fully compatible with Nikon DSLRs such as the Nikon D40, D50, D3100, D5100, etc.

When NASA first started sending up astronauts, they quickly discovered that ballpoint pens would not work in zero gravity. NASA scientists spent $8 million to develop a pen that writes in zero gravity, upside down, and at temperatures ranging from below freezing to 300 degrees Celsius. The Russians used a pencil. This is the pencil of 85mm lenses. You can spend a lot more and get something cool and fancy. This just does the job efficiently and at a good price.

Small enough to fit in your pocket, its nice to carry around ‘just in case I need a wide aperture’. A very nice lens at a bargain price.
