A medium telephoto portrait lens, the AF-S NIKKOR 85mm f/1.8G is suited to a wide range of shooting situations from stunning head and shoulder portraits, to weddings, concerts and more. The fast maximum aperture of f/1.8 performs brilliantly under any lighting conditions and delivers beautiful, natural background blur that brings out the best in any subject. When mounted on a DX-format DSLR, it achieves an effective focal length of 127.5mm. Designed for superior performance, this lightweight lens is equally effective for both stills and HD video.



Whether you’re in a studio, on set, or simply making the most of available light, the AF-S NIKKOR 85mm f/1.8G is ready to perform. The Internal Focus (IF) allows for a compact and lightweight lens design, while the maximum f/1.8 aperture delivers impressive depth of field resulting in portraits with crisp details, emphasised by beautiful background blur. At roughly 350g, it’s light enough to take with you, wherever you go.
