The AF Nikkor 85mm f/1.8D is a short telephoto autofocus lens for Nikon F-Mount 35mm film SLR cameras and Nikon digital SLR Cameras (DSLRs). The 85mm f/1.8D is a very bright sharp contrasty lens that has been one of Nikon's most popular offerings for years on end. It's 28°30' angle of view works well for taking head and shoulders portraits at a moderate yet flattering distance. The f/1.8 maximum aperture produces very shallow depth of field making significant background blur possible. This bright optic also excels at shooting in available light where it's easier to see through and allows faster movement freezing shutter speeds than most lenses.
