  • Nikon 85mm f/1.8D AF Nikkor

    10 out of 10 points and recommended
    Compact, lightweight, bright, quick autofocus, well built.

    This is a great portrait lens. In fact, I think it would be pretty hard to take a bad portrait with this lens. I used the 85mm f/1.4 at a Nikon event and although it was beautiful, it was also much larger and quite heavy, (and twice the cost). This lens is compact and lightweight. I love using the Nikkor 50mm and this lens is not a lot bigger. The out of focus area with this lens is soft and the colors are rich and well saturated. Perfect.

  • Nikon 60mm f/2.8D AF Micro Nikkor

    9 out of 10 points and recommended
    Great product lens. Allows you to get extreemly close

    I bought this lens to do product shots of small to medium items and it has performed perfectly. It is extremely sharp and the colors are well saturated. Also, there is minimal distortion when used properly. I tried the 110mm Macro and found that I had to be too far away from the object I was photographing to get the results I wanted. The build quality on the 60mm Macro is excellent.
