Nikon PC -E Mi­cro 85mm f/2.8D (£1300, $1800)

NPhoto - - Pro Picks -

What’s it for? This is my sec­ond-most-used lens for stu­dio pho­tog­ra­phy. I use it for most of my three­quar­ter or front-on shots. It’s sharp, it fo­cuses very close and it has a great fo­cal length for food shots.

Plus points The tilt-and-shift mech­a­nism en­ables me to pre­cisely con­trol the depth of field, which is ab­so­lutely cru­cial in food pho­tog­ra­phy.

Mi­nus marks It’s too long for over­head shots.
