Nikon 85mm AF-S f1.8G Nikkor
Got my shiny new Nikon
and tested versus the Nikon 85mm f1.8G . 85mm f1.4D
Even with the AF-S, the focus speed of both lenses seems about the same… Impressive feat for the Bokeh King 85mm 1.4D. Little disappointed the 1.8G didn’t focus a tad faster … at 1/3 the price …
The 85 1.8G does seem to have an edge though, with fewer issues seeking

“ BEYOND THE GLAMOUR PHOTOGRAPH: How to Get Started and Be Successful as a Boudoir, Glamour, and Swimsuit Photographer: With Companion DVD,” by Jack Watson, with Andy McFarland, Foreword by Rolando Gomez,” this book has a long title… Let’s trim that down to “ Beyond the Glamour Photograph,” okay?
