To focus using autofocus with manual override (M/A): Slide the lens focus-mode switch to M/A. If desired, autofocus can be over-ridden by rotating the lens focus ring while the shutter-release button is pressed halfway (or, if the camera is equipped with an AF-ON button, while the AF-ON button is pressed). To refocus using autofocus, press the shutter-release button halfway or press the AF-ON button again. The fast maximum aperture of f/1.8 performs brilliantly under any lighting conditions and delivers beautiful, natural background blur that brings out the best in any subject. Compatible Format(s) - FX, DX, FX in DX Crop Mode, 35mm Film.

It's worth noting that if you're purchasing here on Amazon, check your lens over thoroughly upon arrival. The first lens I received was obviously well used! While the Amazon box was still taped, and the Nikon box was well packaged within, the lens had been swapped at some point. Upon opening the Nikon box, it looked like a child had crammed all the parts into the box! The warranty paperwork wasn't complete, the manual was ripped, and the lens itself was not properly fitted into the protective plastic.

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.

1. Excellent image quality
2. Big price advantage compared to Nikon 85mm f/1.4
3. Good handling
4. Smooth focus ring control
5. Compact and light weight
1. Plastic built quality, not a Nikon professional lens. But a decent tradeoff between price and performance
2. AF motor is noisy and constantly makes noise while hunting for focus when you press and hold the shutter after composing the shot. AF is also noisy in live view mode
