I have been using the Nikkor 85mm f/1.8 for the past few days.Originally posted by longman
But 85 f1.4 is damm good for portrait, super fast.....also super price!!!!
now saving bullet to aim for it....
No doubt the lens is very fast at f/1.8, but many a times I find the DOF too shallow especially for head & shoulder shots or small group shots with 2 or more people at slightly different distance away. Ended up using F3.5 or even 5.6 a lot.
