Recently, I made the big switch from Canon to Nikon, and the first lens I had to get was an able replacement for the awesome Canon 85mm f/1.2L prime that I used to use for almost everything on my 5DmkII.
The Nikon 85mm f/1.4G was the one in which every online review I read, was the answer to Canon’s version. I’m not one to usually trust online reviews and really wanted to check it out before I bought it. But with portrait gigs coming up, and with my comfort zone being at the 85mm focal length, it really was a no brainer to get into this lens without renting it first.
Let’s start this off by saying we’re not measurebators, tech geeks, or product specialists for Nikon.
We like cameras a lot. And we want to try to help you get the best possible Camera Body for what you want to shoot. So you can accept or reject some or all of what we’re saying here. We’re only speaking to the application and what we feel would be the best solution for different shooting styles and subjects.
