Samples from the New Nikon 85mm f1.8 on the Nikon D5100

The new Nikon 85mm f1.8 is currently in my hands and undergoing quite a thorough review right now. The other day, I played around with it on my D5100. Here are a couple of quick image samples. The full review and other tests are coming, so stay tuned!

Gear Used

Also used was the OCF Gear TTL cord and the Yongnuo YN-560 II.

All images in this post were subject to minor sharpening and clarity boosts of a couple of levels to simulate real-world use.

Once again, please keep in mind that this is an informal test. With that said, notice the color fringing wide open that doesn’t go away until around f4.
