The Nikon 85mm f1.8 is a fast aperture medium-telephoto prime FX lens. Nikon has re-designed the optical system that meets the requirements of today's DSLR and is capable of taking variety of images with superb clarity and sharpness. The Silent Wave Motor ensures discreet but accurate autofocus. The large aperture allows you to capture images that give a beautifully blurred background. When mounted on a DX-format DSLR, this 85mm prime delivers an apparent focal length of approximately 128mm. More

M/A – Manual/Automatic
Select NIKKOR lenses have a focusing mode which allows switching from automatic to manual focusing with virtually no lag time by simply turning the focusing ring on the lens. This makes it possible to seamlessly switch to fine manual focusing while looking through the viewfinder.
SWM – Silent Wave Motor
AF-s is what Nikon calls their ultra fast Auto-Focusing lenses which utilise Nikons silent wave motor (~SWM). This system works by converting travelling waves into rotational energy to focus the optics the ultrasonic waves move in a spiral pattern inside the barrel with the motor positioned on top of the waves driving it from below.
AS – Aspherical Lens
A lens with a curved, non-spherical surface. Used to reduce aberrations and enable a more compact lens size. Aspherical lenses minimize coma and other types of lens aberrations, even when used at the widest aperture. They are particularly useful in correcting distortion in wide-angle lenses and help contribute to a lighter, more compact design by reducing the number of standard (spherical) elements necessary. Aspherical lens elements correct these distortions by continuously changing the refractive index from the center of the lens.
IF – Internal Focusing
A NIKKOR lens in which only the internal lens group shifts during focusing. Thus, IF NIKKORS do not change in size during AF operation, allowing for compact, lightweight lenses capable of closer focusing distances. These lenses will be designated with the abbreviation IF on the lens barrel.

About Me Getting started
Good product, exactly what I was expecting except the focus was a little slower compared to my other lenses. This being the cheapest lens I own maybe expected after all?

Great value lens
By Cymru hill walker
from North Wales
It's early days and I'm just getting used to this lens but my first impressions are that it produces high quality pictures, is compact and light. Construction wise, it doesn't seem quite as rugged as my other lenses but this might be in part because it feels so light.At this price I would definitely recommend this lens.

About Me Casual user, Hobbyist/Enthusiast
Fantastic image quality with this lense. Brilliant for portrait images with a good aperture range. I was after an 85mm lense for my DF, but gave up trying to get a pre Ai bargain from a certain well known auction site. In desperation I bought this lense and now in hind site glad that I did. Still looking for a pre Ai lense but for now I really like this lense.

Great Lens and super sharp
from West Midlands
Awesome lens for the price. Focus can be a little slow but faster than the Nikon 50mm 1.4. Needed to auto fine tune as apparently there can be issues with back/front focusing which I had with my sample. Once checked and set focus is accurate and the lens is super sharp. My new favourite lens.
