Nikon 85mm f1.8 D AF Lens - thoughts?
Nov 9, 2008

Hi

I take a lot of photographs of live bands with my D80. As you can expect the lighting varies quite a bit! I normally use my Nikkor 16-85mm 3.5-5.6VR which I can just get away with. But I really need some "faster glass".

I am on a budget so need to keep costs down. I also have a 50mm 1.8 which I can use ocassionaly - but if I can't get close its a bit to short for me.

So has anybody got/used the 85mm? Just wondering what the thoughts are. It seems a reasonable compromise that would balance out my existing lenses without breaking the bank.

Cheers

John
