Product Expert camera lenses

Do you like photographing animals, concerts, or portraits? In that case, the Nikon AF-S 85-mm lens is the right choice for you. This light-sensitive lens has a maximum aperture of f/1.8. The extra light allows you to take detailed pictures in dark surroundings. That can be useful at concerts, for example. Create a large depth of field in your photos to focus all the attention on your object. This effect is often used in portrait and product photography. The lens features a silent autofocus motor, so you won't frighten an animal when you're focusing. Thanks to the dust and weatherproof coating, you can use this lens in bad weather without a worry.
