Lens Follow Up: Nikkor 85mm f/1.8

Posted in All, Gear Reviews

Behind the Lincoln Memorial

My last post was an over view of my prime lenses and I wanted to talk about my current favorite lens. The Nikkor 85mm f/1.8 is simply amazing. The crisp, clear, and colorful images this lens captures makes it my favorite. With the 1.6 crop on the 7D, this is the perfect portrait lens. I do not take pictures often but this lens makes it easy. One disadvantage is it does not have auto focus. In video mode this doesn’t matter but it did take time to get used to focusing with out my z-finder. I would highly recommend looking into this lens for anyone needing a portrait lens. I paired it with a Bower adapter which is working perfectly.
