Radiantlite.com review the Nikon 85mm f/1.4D AF Nikkor and writes;
“Built quality of this lens is awesome, it is average in size and weight and very nice to handle. The focus ring is smooth. Closest focusing is 85cm, make it not very ideal for macro / close-up photography.”

Nikonjin Compares the Nikon 85mm f/1.4D AF Nikkor vs Nikon AF 85mm f/1.8D and writes;
“The Nikon AF 85mm f/1.4D and AF 85mm f/1.8D are two of the most commonly used portrait lens by professional and amateur photographers especially wedding and portrait photographers around the world. Both the 85mm f/1.4D and 85mm f/1.8D lenses can give you great portrait pictures with very nice colour, center sharpness and very nice bokeh.”

Kenrockwell reviews the Nikon 85mm f/1.4D AF Nikkor and writes;
“It has better bokeh than the f/1.8 version, is built much more like a tank, takes today’s standard 77mm filters and seems to have better AF accuracy than the f/1.8 model allowing you to make good use of the maximum aperture.”

SLRLensreview reviews the Nikon 85mm f/1.4D AF Nikkor and writes;
“AF Nikkor 85mm f/1.4D showcased very good, practically neutral color reproduction – images in general carried good amount of contrast throughout the aperture range and colors were sufficiently saturated, which in turn helped create rich, life-like textures. “

Bythom.com reviews the Nikon 85mm f/1.4D AF Nikkor and writes;
“Absolutely nothing to complain about, unless, I suppose, you’re a corner purist and were expecting flat field correction. Right from f/1.4 the lens is very good in the center with just a touch of softness; two stops down it is superb. “
Rating: ★★★★½

Momentcorp reviews the Nikon 85mm f/1.4D AF Nikkor and writes;
“The Nikon AF 85mm f/1.4 outperforms the manual focus version without a doubt. On the performance side it is overall pretty damn good, with the exceptions of longitudinal CA, what this means is that the focal planes of the various colors do not coincide. “
Rating: ★★★★½

Photozone.de reviews the Nikon 85mm f/1.4D AF Nikkor and writes;
“That all said the AF 85mm f/1.4D is certainly capable to render beautiful large-aperture results with a shallow depth-of-field and an exceptionally smooth bokeh. The mechanical quality of the lens is fantastic and it is a joy to use this lens. “
