Reviewed! Nikon AF-S Nikkor 85mm f/1.4G

Just published is the first installment of my review of the Nikon AF-S 85mm f/1.4G in DAP.

My review will be expanded, but already includes examples, and discussions of ergonomics, bokeh, MTF, color rendition vs the 85/1.4D, focus shift and color bokeh, a bokeh “movie” from f/1.4–f/16, distortion and vignetting series.

The new Nikon 85mm f/1.4G is surely one of the finest 85mm lenses on the market today, perhaps even the best of all, and I have no hesitation in giving it my highest recommendation. I’ve already committed to purchase my review copy, as I consider it a must-have lens.

Anyone claiming that the 85/1.4G is just an overpriced rehash of the older 85mm f/1.4D is thoroughly clueless. It’s not just one or two things; Nikon has improved everything with this lens. I am thrilled with what I am seeing with the 85/1.4G, though perhaps weaknesses could reveal themselves with further shooting, as no lens is perfect.

The 85/1.4G is an outstanding portrait lens, but it’s also great for wide aperture landscapes too! I’ve always enjoyed an 85mm for landscape work; the 85/1.4G is a great choice.

Get the new Nikon AF-S 85mm f/1.4G for about $1699 at B&H Photo.
