I've seen enough of the 58mm thread, nothing but wide open shots in every post. I guess Nikon should have made that lens without an iris . Anyway, I think an 85mm thread would be welcome. I did a search but came up with nothing. but I'm sure the replies I'll be getting are that the 85mm will be shot wide open as well, right? I guess "wide open" lens photography and blowing out the sky is what's in these days. Wide open is not for me unless I'm shooting in really low light. So, can we see some 85mm f/1.4G shots at all f/ratios?

Yeah you can! Give it a try, the results are awesome! You just need to read the manual on how to do so... 😎

Wow nextelbuddy those are great pics! I just got my 85mm 1.4 this week and have been looking for a thread like this. Mostly for inspiration because I'm at a level below beginner....

Nextel, your photos are amazing, especially the children's portraits. Great shots.

I had one and loved, but traded it away like an idiot, and I'll have another some day. I also had a 85/1.4D, which is decent, but the 1.4G is amazing. I used to shoot at f2 and 2.8 a lot, just to give myself a little more DOF so I was covered if I accidentally focused on eye lashes instead of eye balls. DXO ranks it very near the top on sharpness just behind the likes of the Otus, etc.

Number #5 is my favorite. I love the composition and how you shot this from so close to the ground. The low perspective really makes this shot for me! Looks like I'm pulling out my 85 today. Thanks for the inspiration.
