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. 

BEAUTIFUL BOKEH

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.

Taking the depiction in the out-of-focus area into consideration, coloring in the blurred area is carefully eliminated, and the edges of bokeh are smoothened. In addition, by realizing gradual alteration of the degree of bokeh from the focal plane, the subjects can be effectively emphasized with naturally blurred background. As a result, a dynamic sense of depth that cannot be achieved with smartphones is attained.

 

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.)

 

Thanks to the superb imaging performance from close distances to infinity achieved via the adoption of a multi-focusing system, sharp resolution with minimal aberrations is enabled. Sharpness at the focal plane is noticeable even for a subject's eyes and hair in contrast with elaborate bokeh, resulting in effectively emphasized subject.

 

OUTSTANDING OPTICAL PERFORMANCE THAT DELIVERS HIGH-QUALITY IMAGES IN DIVERSE SCENES

Peripheral illumination does not fall off drastically by receiving a sufficient light amount throughout the entire frame from the center, through middle areas, to the peripheral areas. Bright peripheral illumination can be retained even at the maximum aperture. This also contributes to creating soft and natural bokeh characteristics.

 

Via the employment of two ED glass elements, color bleeding that is likely to occur around the edges of subjects in high-contrast scenes is effectively compensated.

By effectively compensating sagittal coma flare from the maximum aperture, even small point images at the periphery are faithfully reproduced as point images. Enhancing point-image reproduction also results in higher resolution and better bokeh characteristics.

By adopting Nano Crystal Coat, clear images with effectively reduced ghost and flare can be captured even in backlit portrait shooting with the sun behind the subject.

 

EASY-TO-OPERATE CONTROL RING TO WHICH VARIOUS FUNCTIONS CAN BE ASSIGNED

A control ring to which M/A*, aperture or exposure compensation can be assigned using the camera is incorporated. Assigning functions to the control ring provides new, smooth operability without using the main command dial or sub-command dial. Also, the control ring can be operated even when the lens hood is reversely attached.

*With this manual-priority autofocus mode, AF is instantly overridden with MF by rotating the control ring.

SUPERB MOVIE RECORDING PERFORMANCE WITH CONSIDERATION GIVEN TO OPERABILITY

Smooth and quiet adjustment of focus and exposure is enabled with comfortable operational feel of the click-less control ring. Also, smooth and stable aperture control delivers natural exposure changes to movies.

OTHER FEATURES AND FUNCTIONS

Dust- and drip-resistant capability* is achieved with sealing for various sections including movable parts of the lens barrel to prevent dust or water droplets from entering the body.

* Perfect dustproof and waterproof performance is not guaranteed.

Thanks to a diaphragm blade unit with driving mechanism employed on the lens body, the camera can accurately control aperture via electronic signals. This delivers stable aperture control (AE) constantly, even during continuous shooting.

* Perfect dustproof and waterproof performance is not guaranteed.

S-LINE LENSES WITH NEW-DIMENSIONAL OPTICAL PERFORMANCE ACHIEVED WITH THE NIKON Z MOUNT

NIKKOR Z lenses are realized by combining the advantages of a large inner diameter and short flange focal distance thanks to the Z mount with the advanced optical technologies of NIKKOR lenses. The S-Line designation is reserved only for NIKKOR Z lenses that provide superior optical performance at a higher level. Every S-Line lens including the NIKKOR Z 85mm f/1.8 S employs Nano Crystal Coat that is adopted for higher-class NIKKOR F lenses. Also, having cleared newly established standards in design principles and quality control that are even stricter than Nikon's conventional standards, S-Line lenses deliver resolution, bokeh characteristics, point-image reproduction, image quality at maximum aperture and uniform product quality, all of which are superior to those assumed for conventional lenses of the equivalent specifications.
