I used the 85mm f/1.4 on my D200 for 10 days. The D200 is a crop frame sensor so it had a long reach at 85mm. It's not a light piece of glass but, it balanced well in my wrist-strap grip. The focus was fast, quiet, and right on target. The image quality was excellent; just as sharp as my favorite 50mm f/1.4 with beautiful bokeh when I wanted it. I used it for close-in portraits and I had no trouble getting good focus on my subject's eyes.

Notes: Auto-focus is not supported on D3200, D3000, D3100, D5000, D5100, D40 and D60 cameras.
A fast f/1.4 aperture makes this lens a standout for sports, portraits, and photojournalism. With Nikon's typical attention to details, its aperture has extra blades, enabling the diaphragm shape to be a near-perfect circle. This ensures crisper images and more flattering highlights in the out-of-focus portion of the image.
