Longer lenses have always been recommended for capturing people because they don’t distort the faces; they give you nice, flat results. While this lens does produce some moderate barrel distortion, this can be almost entirely corrected in post-processing. Regarding low-light shooting advantages, the larger F1.8 aperture of the Nikon 85mm f1.8G helps to separate the model, by incenting sharp in-focus elements, and creamy cluttered background. This masterpeace is one of the best lenses ever made by Nikon and with your Nikon 85mm f1.8G it produces very sharp photos. It can focus on elements as close as 0.8m throughout the zoom range. The Nikon 85mm f1.8G weighs in at just 350g, making it a really good choice for people whose primary concern is weight. Designed to produce awesome, superb and superb background blur, ideal for stunning portraits and contrasty natural images. It is also a fantastic ceremony lens for those who shoot weddings in larger venues. The remarkable, superb Nikon 85mm f1.8G lens is specifically designed for portrait photography and accurately reproduces the tones, colours and texture of the subject’s skin, clothes and accessories as well as assuring an excellent rendering of highlight and out of focus areas. All in all, the Nikon 85mm f1.8G is a gem of a glass to have in your Nikon camera bag.
