These are the first images I took with my recently purchased Nikon 85mm f/1.8G lens. This is a great portrait lens, but for my first shots, I just took a short trip outside the city and shot some flowers at f/1.8 with the D800E.
I can say that I real impressed with the performance of this lens. It’s very sharp even wide open, and while it reaches its peak at about f/4, this is a lens I would happily use wide open as much as I can. I also like the bokeh very much.
Given its price difference compared to the f/1.4 version, I can say this is a superb lens at a great price !
There will be more images during the next days.
