The Nikon AF Nikkor 85 mm f/ 1.4 D is a fast portrait lens. The f/1.4 aperture makes the lens ideal for shooting in low-light-level conditions and for shallow depth of field situations.
The lens features internal focusing and a 9-blade aperture, which provides quite good bokeh. Confusion circles of bokeh are round.
Fast autofocusing of the Nikon AF NIKKOR 85 mm f/ 1.4 D makes it possible to shoot dynamic subjects and sports. It is already rather sharp when wide open. From f/ 4 onwards it is extremely sharp.
Within the portrait range of f/1.4 - 2.8, the lens produces rather soft and flexible picture. So, it may be considered a well-deserved portrait lens.
Some users note the Nikon AF NIKKOR 85 mm f/ 1.4 D sensitivity to ambient light and chromatic aberrations when wide open.
