Nikon 85 F1.4 AFS Hands On

Nikon finally put out an update to one of its most popular lenses the 85 1.4 AFD with the brand NEW 85 1.4 AFS. The new lens is priced at $1699.99 and can be purchased from Allen’s Camera 215.547.2841 tell him the Fro sent you.

I got to unbox, sniff test and take sample images with this lens. It is built extremely well as you would expect from any new PRO piece of glass. When it comes to testing out equipment some people take it way to far, they shoot charts and extreme crops of files to see if they see any defects. I am more into getting the good glass and using it for what I bought it for, to capture great images. These camera companies are not going to put out crap lenses just to put them out. Go shoot, have fun don’t over analyze and just capture some great images.

Let’s take a look at some of the sample images taken with the NEW Nikon 85 1.4 AFS and Nikon D3S.
The only images not shot at f1.4 is the black and white image of the box, that was shot at f2.8
