Any love out there for the 85mm f/1.8 AF-D ?
Nov 25, 2012

I'm considering the 85mm f/1.8 AF-D over the newer G version and looking for yay/nay feedback. I think I'd prefer the manual aperture ring and what appears to be a sturdier build.

I know he's controversial here, but Ken Rockwell wrote in his review: "The Nikon 85mm f/1.8 AF andAF-D have superb optical and mechanical quality."

Any dissenters or comments either direction, please?

Thank you in advance, I won't litter the thread with a "thank you" afterwards.
