Specs Comparison: Tamron SP 85mm f/1.8 Di VC USD vs Nikon 85mm f/1.8G

Here is the quick specs comparison of Tamron SP 85mm f/1.8 Di VC USD Lens and Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 85mm f/1.8G Lens. You can take a look at the key differences between the two great lenses.

Tamron SP 85mm f/1.8 Di VC USD (Nikon): Incorporating one LD (Low Dispersion) element and one XLD (Extra Low Dispersion) glass element into the optical design, the new SP 85mm f/1.8 Di VC USD lens is adept at reducing chromatic aberrations and color fringing for a high degree of clarity and color accuracy, as well as sharpness and resolution and it is constructed with Tamron’s new SP design, incorporating a new look and feel which includes larger and more tactile switches, together with Tamron’s Moisture-Resistant Construction.

Nikon 85mm f/1.8G Lens ($477 at Amazon, B&H, Adorama): The AF-S NIKKOR 85mm f/1.8G Lens from Nikon is a fast, compact FX-format prime medium telephoto lens. Though optimized for FX-format DSLR cameras, the lens is equally adept at serving any Nikon DX-format DSLR. The combination of its mid-range telephoto design and a fast f/1.8 aperture make it an excellent option for shooting both still images and HD video in low light scenarios. Available light shooters will love the wide-open effect when shooting intimate portraits; in-focus subjects will stay sharp, while distracting backgrounds will melt into a pleasing soft blur.
