Which 85mm for Nikon, NOT the 85mm 1.8G


Recommended Posts

I have tried two copies of that one, and I think the chromatic aberration is terrible. One copy had focus issues I could not resolve through calibration. I am considering the 85mm Sigma Art that was just released, but early reports seem to suggest a lot of focus issues. I have and LOVE the Sigma 50mm Art. I think the Nikon 1.4 is too pricey, people seem to always suggest the 85mm 1.8G instead of that one. And then there is the new Tamron 85mm 1.8, which some people seem to love too. Any recommendations?

I'm a Nikon OEM snob and I was going to tell you the Nikon 85mm f/1.8G. LOL!!  I haven't experienced the same issues that you are having. Have you considered the new Nikon 105mm f/1.4G?

As far as Sigma vs Tamron, I'd choose a Sigma ART. In either case, quality control has gotten better with both brands, but you can still have issues. Test them thoroughly if you go that route.
