Nikon 85mm AF-S NIKKOR f/1.8G

nikon85f18
Review Date: Sep 18, 2013 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $500.00 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Price, sharpness, IQ
Cons:
AF-speed not the fastest

One of my favorites! IQ is incredible for a "non-pro" lens and I am consistently amazed at what it outputs. Wide open images are sharp without any PP and colors are flat. Flare control isn't too bad either.

Highly recommended!

Review Date: Jul 1, 2005 Recommend? no | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 2 

 
Pros: Large zoom range
Cons:
Everything else...photo quality, saturation, brightness, must use at relatively high shutter speeds ESPECIALLY at upper zoome end...element extends due to excessive front-end weight

So if you REALLY want a zoom lens...this is not the lens to EVEN consider buying. If you're looking to spend very little money, look for this cheap some place. I sold it for about $100 cheaper than I bought it because I was desperate to get rid of it. I can't afford "L" lenses on my student budget, but I definately can't afford cheap, low-quality garbage. I don't care that it has a Canon logo on it. This lens is absolutely horrible, and to be honest with you, if you're considering buying it, my only advise is, make sure you have the sun as your light source, that you're using minimum ISO 800 film, and that you're taking photos of non-moving objects...

One word sums up my opinion on this lens: POOP.
