Hey, the 85/1.4 AF-S is a really nice lens, and it has its uses, but pairing it with a TC is not one of the ones that comes to mind. But I know where you're coming from, wanting a fast, long prime for indoor sports and such. Consider instead the 105 or 135/2 DC lenses for your purpose. I've shot a number of cheerleading competitions using the 105/2 DC, and it works very well for the purpose.

According to the Teleconverter compatability chart that can be found on Nikon's Teleconverter page this lens is not compatable. However, both the 100DC and 135DC lenses are f/2 lenses within the range you are looking. Both have incredible optics and might serve you well. The 135 DC f/2 sells for $1395, so it would be significantly cheaper than the 85 f/1.4 with a TC. In fact you could buy both the 135 DC f/2 and the 85mm f/1.8 for less than the 85mm f/1.4G & a TC-14E.

No, B&H, Adorama, and any other major retailers don't carry this lens. I had to search the ends of the earth to find this thing. I recommend calling every camera small store in the U.S till find one (smaller cities like st.louis, milwakee, etc.).

Thanks for your interest in the Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 85mm f/1.4G. We have shipped many thousands of these lenses to our customers. Interest for this lens has been very high. If you have an urgent need I'd strongly suggest ordering one now from an authorized dealer so that you will be on their list as they receive shipments from us.

Question

I just bought this 85 f1.4g used. I have a couple weeks to return it. Why doesn't it have VR? Will there be a version in the future that does?

This is important since I had to pay nearly retails to even get one used. If they come out with a VR version that has all the same performance, then I would expect mine to lose a lot of its value. That is if VR can be done and still put out a lens of this quality. Did Nikon find that it could not be done or was it more of a paper work thing?

Nikon's shorter primes do not have VR and I don't think they will come out with a new 85mm 1.4 with it. The new 85mm 1.8 they just recently released doesn't have it . At the shorter focal length you don't need VR unless you on something that is moving.

Question

How does the 85mm 1.4g compare to the new 85mm 1.8g

I am considering purchasing the 85mm 1.8g and a wide angle 28mm 1.8 for less than I would pay for the 85mm 1.4g lens. I am a semi pro portrait shooter and I would really like some insight to decide weither the image quality of this lens will really make a difference in results over the 85 1.8g. I shoot with a D700. Thanks for any responses.

DxOMark, just put out a test on this lens. In a nutshell, this specific lens tests out to be the sharpest lens you can put on ANY Nikon. That includes Zeiss or Sigma! Also, you have a 9-blade rounded diaphragm on the 1.4 and a 7-blade on the 1.8. If you compare the Bokeh on both, the 1.4 will be better. Nano-Crystal coating is another difference. This is a HUGE plus when shooting back-lit portraits outdoors. Someone else mentioned build quality, and part of that quality is the inclusion of the rear dust gasket that better protects against the elements.

Is it worth the difference in price? That depends on the overall quality you want to hand your clients. I think so...however, the 1.8 IS a great bargain because it is VERY capable.

After renting this lens a few times, I sold my 1.4D. However, now the lens is back-ordered. Hopefully, as an NPS member, I can get one in my hands sooner than later. ;)

Question

I had a D2X. On that camera, if I remember correctly, any give lens "acted" like a lens 1.5 X the actual length. Therefore,

If I am correct, when I wanted a 90 mm lens for portrait photography, I used a 60. I've been waiting for the D4X but when I saw the D3200, I bought it thinking it could hold me over until the D4X release.

I am about to buy the AF-S NIKKOR 85mm f/1.4G which will on the D3200 function as an 85 mm (ideal for portrait) but when I finally get to buy the D4X, will then that lens function as an 85 mm X 1.5 and not ideal for portraits.

I am under the impression that the DX series box makes the lens 1.5 X as long but that the D3200 does not. I don't want a 85 mm at $1700 that will become 1.5 X longer when place on the coming D4X.

I may be just confused and if so, I apologize.

You have it reversed, the 85mm on the d3200 will have a focal length of approx 127mm this is because the d3200 is a DX camera, the D4( or x when produced) are full frame FX lenses.

85mm 1.4 or 50mm 1.4

I am doing weddings and I was wondering if the 85mm 1.4 is too narrow. In that case I guess I would go for the 50mm 1.4. I would take photos of plate settings and just other decorations.

Question

Weather Resistance?

I have been using this lens with my D7000 for about 6 months now and hardly ever take it off because it's so amazing. It is a pro lens (correct?) and with the rubber seal at the mount and seeing several photographs of Nikon equipment in brochures and such with rain drops on it - how much is this lens/camera combo intended to withstand? I understand it's not waterPROOF, that would be insane however I am a nature photographer at heart and frequently freek out when the drops start coming down.

Can anyone give me a generalization as to how much the 85mm f/1.4G can take when mounted to the D7000?

■ AF-S NIKKOR 85mm f/1.4G Lens Care
• Do not pick up or hold the lens or camera using only the lens
hood.
• Keep the CPU contacts clean.
• Should the rubber lens-mount gasket be damaged, cease
use immediately and take the lens to a Nikon-authorized
service center for repair.
• Use a blower to remove dust and lint from the lens surfaces.
To remove smudges and fingerprints, apply a small amount
of ethanol or lens cleaner to a soft, clean cotton cloth or lenscleaning
tissue and clean from the center outwards using a
circular motion, taking care not to leave smears or touch the
glass with your fingers.
• Never use organic solvents such as paint thinner or benzene
to clean the lens.
• The lens hood or NC filters can be used to protect the front
lens element.
• Attach the front and rear caps before placing the lens in its
flexible pouch.
• If the lens will not be used for an extended period, store it in
a cool, dry location to prevent mold and rust. Do not store in
direct sunlight or with naphtha or camphor moth balls.
• Keep the lens dry. Rusting of the internal mechanism can
cause irreparable damage.
• Leaving the lens in extremely hot locations could damage or

Question

Compatible with D300S?

Amazon says "no" to the compatibility with the D300S, but I'm pretty sure this is the lens I borrowed from another student at a photography workshop and loved it. Will it work with my Nikon D300S?

Question

I got a Nikon 85mm F/1.4 G Lens with serial number 242xxx, which was sold to me as a US version.

I was expecting a prefix US in serial number. Is this lens US version or not? Or what is the difference?

Not all NIKKOR lenses intended for the US market will have the US prefix in the serial number. Please contact Nikon Support with your serial number if you would like us to research this for you : https://support.nikonusa.com/app/co....

The serial number should start with 60..... and inside the box should be a USA warranty card.
