Introducing the new NIKKOR 85mm f/1.8G

The AF-S NIKKOR 85mm f/1.8G is the latest addition to the FX-format lens lineup and utilises an all new optical design allowing users to enjoy shooting portraits with pleasing blur characteristics only possible through fixed focal length lenses. Even with a fast maximum aperture of f/1.8, the AF-S NIKKOR 85mm f/1.8G is very lightweight at roughly 350g, allowing users to easily carry their camera around with this lens mounted.

Being equipped with a Silent Wave Motor (SWM) ensures not only quiet autofocus operations, but also makes autofocus shooting possible when the lens is used with entry-level Nikon DX-format digital-SLR cameras such as the D5100 and D3100.
