Thee legendary portrait lens
from WInter Haven, FL
About Me Semi-pro Photographer
Comments about Nikon 85mm f/1.4D IF AF Telephoto Nikkor Lens w/ Hood:
This is thee portrait lens. It makes you look like a pro if your not. The only thing I wished it had was the smw motor of the newer g version but nevertheless it blows away the competition is used properly. I even prefer this to the zoom lenses like the 80-200 and 70-200 because of its small size. It become my crown jewel of lenses when it comes to portraits. Some day I will own the 1.4g but until then I continue to use this beauty.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Great lens...A+ all around
By Bill GrayD
from Marietta, PA
I've long been waiting to own this amazing piece of glass and was worried I had built it up to be more than it could deliver. Not so, on the D700 this is a superb setup for portraits, and is a great/fast lens for candids. Amazing bokeh!
