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
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
- 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
- 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.
- 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
- 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.
