Nikon 85mm f/1.8G AF-S NIKKOR Lens

Okay. I received my Nikon 85mm f/1.8G AF-S NIKKOR Lens from Amazon today. I pre-ordered on the day it was released (January 6, 2012). Well, I had to take the thing out of the box and start playing around with it. I shot it wide open at f/1.8 to judge the bokeh results (on my Nikon D90). Okay, these shots were indoors at night. I shot a couple images of our cat Youppi. Oh Montréal Expos, how we miss you so…

I think the bokeh is quite nice. Considering this lens is a third the cost of the cream master (Nikon 85mm f/1.4G AF-S), I am pleased with the results so far. Since it is springtime in Michigan now, I will have to go out and do some daytime shots of the floral displays. That will be another judge of the bokeh quality. I also like the sharpness in Youppi’s features in these images. I’m glad I pre-ordered this glass…

Oh – and I did not do anything with Photoshop on these images (not even crop). Straight out of the camera!
