Nikon AF-S NIKKOR f/1.8G ED Lens
Special edition of the popular 50mm f/1.8 NIKKOR lens. Boasts a compact and lightweight body with a retro-look and feel.
With a fast maximum aperture of f/1.8, this is a great lens for low-light situations or when shallow depth of field is required. An aspherical lens element reduces aberrations and increases resolution, and Nikon’s exclusive Silent Wave Motor (SWM) delivers whisper-quiet operation.
The retro design pays homage to vintage NIKKOR lenses and perfectly complements the looks of the Nikon Df.

(I shoot with a Nikon D610)
I already have a 35mm lens....will this replace it? I was hopeful that it would just so I could sell and make some money to offset the cost of this lens but No - it will be it's new best friend. :D The two are a perfect pairing.
35mm is great for everyday use. It sees as my eye sees and it's so easy to catch great photos and you wont find yourself limited in a small room (too far/too close). The aperature/background blur looks professional, it's lightweight and short so it's easy to take anywhere. This 85 has the same aperature but because you're increasing the space between you and your subject the blur is gorgeous especially for portraits. At quick glance you won't notice a huge difference in the blur but it is enough to make me very happy with my purchase. It's obviously a good bit longer (and heavier) which has pros and cons to the 35mm. The first being that I don't have to be so close to my subjects. With adults this is a plus as I feel they feel more comfortable when my lens is not up in their face. With small children this is a con as it limits the interactions I'm able to have with them since I'm so far away. In some instances I find it's a perfect length and I have to do less chasing to get my photo, in others I find myself in the street to get the shot I want of my kids in the front yard. It just depends on your environment. This is not an ideal indoor lens. It's too long and you wont get anything but heads. Birthday parties, family get togethers...this is not your lens. But take it outdoors and FALL in love with it. My point is - if you had to pick just one lens, the 35mm is the most versatile but the 85mm is it's prettier, older sister. :) I am quickly seeing how I love having the 85mm in my life.
