Pros: Sharpness, bokeh, overall clean and lively images, acceptable MF

Cons: Some longitudinal CA wide open; moderately fast AF; some coma wide open. Expensive.

Opinion: The focal length is somewhat odd (I feel more at ease with either 58 or 105), and is traditionally used for (shoulder) portraits. In this roles, it is an excellent lens, with adequate sharpness wide open already. Widest aperture is however not very useful for shoulder portraits, depth of field being insufficient in most cases. I found this lens particularly useful at f/2.2, where the blur is less pronounced and the bokeh still excellent. Full aperture may be useful in very low light, or for "creative" shots. Another interesting area is night shots, where this lens performs well thanks, inter alia, to its coatings. There is some visible firefly-like coma wide open, which is acceptable because it is not "smeared". Handling is quite good: this lens is biggish but not very heavy, and acceptable as a walk-around lens if you do not mind drawing attention (or if you *seek* attention). On the negative side, this lens costs an arm and a leg. Please note that for portraits, you could as well use an old 105/2.5 wide open and get nice, though not identical, results.

Pros: sharp enough, colors, blurry, precision af.

Cons: It does not seem to me that it has any.

Opinion: a lens that gives pleasure to use and own. Give each image a touch of art. Very beautiful colors and a sharpness appropriate to the use for which it was conceived. The af quite responsive and definitely precise. Weight and bulk quite contained since we are talking about an 85mm f1.4 for ff reflex. price in line with those of the "pro" line of Nikon. The hood is actually "poor". When you insert it into its bayonet I almost have the feeling that it melts in my hand. the blurred that produces, in my opinion is already worth 'alone the money it costs! Definitely recommended!

Pros: Sharpness over the whole frame, contrast, very soft bokeh both behind the subject and in the transition, aberrations completely absent already from f2.

Cons: Color rendering a little too much tending to heat, bokeh fringing sensible, blurred front so so, price of the new out of the market.

Opinion: Given that obviously we are talking about a lens of the highest level, the mix of performance, weight and autofocus accuracy make it the most versatile 85mm f1.4 for Nikon. I bought it because coupled with my D750 I wanted maximum performance while maintaining portability for my travels and in fact does not miss a beat, almost boring for those like me coming from the previous D. Saturated colors like all modern lenses, it gives excellent shots even in sluggish light conditions where the previous D showed a bit 'the side. However, it maintains a good fidelity even with a temperature significantly shifted towards the heat. Chromatic aberrations very well corrected, a nice step forward compared to the D, except for a bit of imperfection at TA in the area close to the fire where I would have expected an improvement compared to the predecessor and instead it is identical. Easier to use and more versatile compared to the D, compared to this it pays the price of a color rendering of the complexion a little less magical but that in my opinion goes very well with everything else, nature in the first place where it gave me magnificent shots in autumn. The only real objective defect is a bokeh in front of the subject who in critical situations is a little nervous. The bokeh behind instead is even softer than the D (the numerous online tests confirm, those who say the opposite are wrong), but in practice it is difficult to see differences. Referring to my specimens, a TA goes strong, the center is slightly lower than the D but the homogeneity on the frame is far superior, it does not split the hair like the 35 1.4 art or the 180 2.8 but it is fine, then already at f2 it is an absolute blade, I would say that considering all aspects it has about 2/3 stop in favor on the D. If for you the weight is not a problem, the 85 art is an even more performing lens, but since this G also has detail to sell I would evaluate more than anything else which color rendering and level of portability are more for you. If you prefer sweet portraits with more neutral and soft complexions in optimal light conditions, taken for passion and you have the desire and ability to manage a lens a little more difficult, then the D could be the best choice given the economic savings, but with the cost of losing the AF on mirrorless. The price of the new is out of the market but at the price of the used (about € 900 for a specimen equal to the new) is valid.

Pros: sharp, blur

Cons: hood, price, flare

Opinion: Professional portrait lens, there is little to say, gives great satisfaction. Used for about 2 years to do a bit of everything, not just portrait, also because it is a lens light enough to carry with you, compared to others I have had. The photos are already sharp at 1.4 (as long as I can focus on the desired point), absurd blurry and the contrast is good for my taste. I happened to photograph scenes where there were spotlights or light bulbs on and I noticed in the photos of the strange flare, so you have to be a little careful on these occasions. Lens that I recommend to portraitists! Of course, the price of the new in my opinion is absurd, obviously it is better to move to the used where it is between 800/900 euros.

Pros: Bokeh, weight, blurry progression, sharpness, backlight yield

Cons: Price from new (?)

Opinion: Finally after years of use I leave this review. Optics that still manages to amaze me every time I use it, unique character. The bokeh is a little less magical than his 1.4D ancestor but only realizes it if one has them both :D For the rest, to say, at 1.4 it is already sharp, even on z7 I find it too engraved to TA, in fact in the portraits slightly lowered the sharpness. I put the weight in the pros because I think it's the lightest 85mm 1.4 in circulation. It's the optics that every portrait painter should have. Vote 10
