  1. I picked up a mint Nikon 85mm f/1.8 yesterday morning, I would have liked the f/1.4 version but the extra £500 was a bit much at the moment. :D

    I took a couple of quick shots of my son before he got bored and I can safely say this is going to be a well used lens, wide open at f/1.8 the DOF is minimal but the points in focus are sharp, stop it down to even f/2 and f/2.8 and it is very impressive.

    D3, 85mm, 1/250th, f/2.8

    I also did a version where I converted to mono and added a slight selenium tone.

  2. wow, that bokeh is nice and smooth. Would love to see more examples as I'm looking at picking up this lens.
