I rented this lens to use with my Nikon D3200 (cropped) as a portrait lens and I loved the creamy images I got. I normally use my 35mm f/1.8 prime lens for portraits, but I understand that the wider-angle lens (which is what a 35mm is considered) can cause facial elongating on people's features. I read that the 85mm is an ideal portrait lens and I wanted to see for myself. The images I took with the 85mm are creamy and sharp. I like that I could go as low as f/1.8 with this lens, but I generally don't shoot below f/2.5 to ensure what I'm focusing on will be sharp in the image. You still get great bokeh (blurred background) at f/2.5! The lens arrived the day I requested and was in great condition. Packaged well and came with easy-to-follow return instructions and postage. I know now I love this lens and I can purchase one with confidence that it's money well spent (instead of buying and it's not what I wanted). I'm already eyeing other items I want to rent--a great way to try before you buy.
