Hi,

I'm thinking about Nikon 85 f1.8 S in the future and I wonder if anyone here is actually using this lens . I'm currently using Tamron SP 85 f1.8 VC and it actually works much better on the Z6 than on the D750. I get a lot more keepers with the Z6 than with the D750 when I shoot wide open.

But a lot of reviewers say that the new 85 S is a sharpshooter and I want to hear your feedback on this lens.

Thank you.

I have the 85 f1.8S and it is a superb lens, sharp wide open, sharp across the frame, lovely bokeh, little to no CA. Whether it is better than your Tamron 85 f1.8 VC I could not say, you would have to look at example photos of both.

There are plenty of good reviews:

Thank you, Lance! It looks like this is the lens I should get.
