Nikon 85mm f/1.4D IF AF Nikkor

1933NAS_180
Review Date: Jul 7, 2005 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $1,100.00 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Outstanding Bokeh, light, fast
Cons:
I wish the lens hood was a pull out type

A beautiful lens, much nicer than the 85 1.8 and takes the most special pictures of all Nikons I have used. This lens combined with the 180 2.8 make a fantastic combo.

I would buy this lens for twice the price. You simply can not get this type of shot with any other lens, except maybe the 200 f2.0.


 
Nikon 28mm f/1.4D AF Nikkor

1921NAS_180
Review Date: Jun 21, 2005 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $1,100.00 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Fantastic Low light performance
Cons:
Cost

This is the best lowlight lens I have ever used. At the price it should be. At f1.4 the center of the frame is very sharp with the edges being a little softer. At f2.0 and beyond it is outstanding. I can handhold this lens at 1/10 second and get great shots.

I just wish Nikon would come out with a full frame digital camera so the lens would become a true 28 again.


 
Nikon 28-70mm f/2.8 ED-IF AF-S

1961NAS_180
Review Date: Jun 21, 2005 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $750.00 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Fast, Build Quality is Great, Great Range on digital
Cons:
Big...Heavy

I have used this lens on film and digital and actualy like it better on digital. Very fast focus and built to last a lifetime. I much prefer this to the 17-55 I tried. The 28-70 was not as sharp wide open, but was the same at f4 and much better beyond that. It is a great event lens.
