Overall, Nikon's 85mm f/1.8G prime is everything that any discerning buyer could want. The fact that Nikon includes a protective soft pouch with the lens is a very nice additional touch. All that is missing is a vibration control system. To be fair, that is hardly essential in a lens of this type but it is a feature that Nikon could in theory add in the future, albeit at greater cost. As things stand, the 85mm f/1.8G offers what is probably the ideal combination of features, quality and price.
