Details from Nikon

    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

    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

    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

    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

    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.

    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

    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.
