Nikkor AF-D 85 f/1.8 for lanscape and night cityscape
Oct 24, 2013

I just purchased Nikkor AF-D 85 f/1.8 for lanscape and night cityscape purpose. (DX)

Brief search on the Web show that in this range (60-90 mm) most of lenses are subject to flare.
So I discarded:

Micro Nikkor AF-S 85 f/3.5 DX,
Micro Nikkor 60 f/2.8
Tamron 90 and tokina 100 macro;
new Nikkor AF-S 85 f/1.8.
my own AF-S 50 f/1.4 and AF-S 70-300 VR.

Are somebody used AF-D 85 f/1.8 for night cityscape? What problems and troubles?

Post your night cityscape photos from AF-D 85 f/1.8, please.
Maybe You like some other lens in this range (60...90mm)?

P.S. I fully satisfied with night performance of AF-S 28 f/1.8:
