Fast, medium-telephoto prime lens ideal for portraits emphasizing subjects with natural bokeh and high resolution at the focal plane
Go beyond selfies and craft stunning natural portraits with the NIKKOR Z 85mm f/1.8 S. This new S-Line prime lens offers superior rendering capabilities and produces sharp images with a sense of reality. Reproduce subjects without distortion while delivering a beautiful gradation of bokeh. Smooth and stable movie recording performance makes this lens perfect for both film and stills, while an easy-to-operate control ring makes using this lens a dream.
Experience true optical excellence with the NIKKOR Z 85mm f/1.8 S.
As a fast medium-telephoto prime lens with a f/1.8 aperture, capture beautiful bokeh with smooth gradation – giving your shots a greater sense of depth, while still keeping emphasis on your main subject. With an extremely sharp focal plane across the entire shooting range, capture great images with shallow depths of field.
SHARP FROM ANY DISTANCE
Experience superb imaging performance from any focus distance with the lens’ multi-focusing system. Thanks to this new multi-focusing system, that gives an upgraded autofocus accuracy and speed, the lens delivers enhanced image quality with detailed textures while effectively reducing any aberrations.
With two extra-low dispersion (ED) glass elements, the lens also minimises colour fringing and corrects various lens aberrations. Capture great backlit portraits with the Nano Crystal Coat that reduces ghostings and flares. The lens delivers the exact point-to-point rendering by the compensation of the sagittal coma flare that would occur in many lenses.
MOVIES MADE EASY
Making movies has never been easier and better with the NIKKOR Z 85mm f/1.8 S. With a customisable control ring, and a stepping motor (STM) for silent and accurate autofocus control, you can capture your scene quickly and quietly without any disturbance. Greater diaphragm control ensures you can smoothly change aperture and transition between different lighting environments easily.
SMOOTH SHOOTING EXPERIENCE
Perfection is at your fingertips. For smoother and more intuitive shooting experience, an easy-to-operate control ring gives access to a myriad of functions, such as aperture adjustment and exposure compensation. Agile for your camera kit at approximately 470g, with dust and drip-resistant performance, this lens ensures you have a comfortable shooting experience whether it be for stills or movies.
IDEAL LENS FOR PORTRAITS DEVELOPED WITH INTENSIVE CONSIDERATION GIVEN TO ELABORATE BOKEH CHARACTERISTICS
Maximizing the advantages of the Nikon Z mount system, outstanding optical performance that can create exquisite bokeh characteristics is achieved. In contrast with elaborate bokeh, resolution perception at the focal plane is remarkably emphasized to enable the capture of impressive portraits. With overwhelming rendering capability that overturns the perception of f/1.8 lenses, image expression in both stills and movies is greatly enriched.
By retaining sufficient peripheral illumination, circular bokeh with minimal optical vignetting is provided in the peripheral areas of the frame even at the maximum aperture. Each light source can be reproduced as a beautiful circular bokeh with clear and deep color. (By stopping down the aperture, shape will be closer to a circle.)
