Hi Welcome to the forum.
You could look at the Nikon 85mm f1.8 lens. Hope this helps... Graham

is there much difference in the 1.4 and the 1.8 I can't imagine you can see much difference apart from the cost! I do all my corporate photography (http://www.specialimages.co.uk/blog/) with a wide aperture 2.8 and sometimes when space is time my a shorter wider lens would help- might have to be the 1.8 as its far cheaper and I am guessing lighter.

The f1.4 is a top of the range fx format lens , and should deliver superior results than the f1.8

Hello Grantly Lynch,

What format are you shooting FX or DX?

Martyn.

1.8 circa 250.00. 1.4 1000.00+. Decisions, decisions!
