The Nikon NIKKOR Z 85mm f/1.8 S Lens is a premium S-Line fast-focusing lens that delivers incredible detail throughout the frame. Whether shooting stills or video, this full-frame mirrorless lens lets photographers portray subjects with astonishing clarity.
This 85mm prime lens is perfect for shooting portraits, wedding and fashion photography as well as street photography and interviews.
The short-telephoto prime is characterized by its flattering focal length, breath-taking resolution, stunning bokeh and bright f/1.8 design.
The maximum aperture strikes a balance between size, weight, and speed, offering suitable speed for working in difficult lighting yet remaining sleek enough for handheld use.
Two extra-low dispersion elements are featured, and help to reduce color fringing and chromatic aberrations in order to achieve high clarity and color fidelity. Both Nano Crystal and Super Integrated Coatings are used to suppress flare and ghosting for great colour fidelity and high contrast.
Complementing the optical design, a multi-focus system, which employs two synchronized stepping motors, helps to realize impressively fast, accurate, and quiet focus performance, along with full-time manual focus override, to suit both stills and video needs.
Bokeh is beautifully natural-looking and smoothly graded to the edges of the frame. Your point of focus is always rendered sharply and highlights are reproduced as gentle points.
The Z series' precise Eye-Detection AF combined with the NIKKOR Z 85mm f/1.8 S’s extreme sharpness ensure that the user’s portraits and headshots will feature tack-sharp focus directly on the eyes of the subject.
Skin tones are natural and edge-to-edge sharpness is superb—even when you shoot wide open. A minimum focus distance of just 0.80 m puts you in control of the frame, from close-up to infinity.
No matter the setting, Nikon’s anti-reflective Nano Crystal Coat combats ghosting and flare for greater image clarity. Every component of a scene is perfectly reproduced, even in backlit conditions.
Thanks to its artistic qualities, natural perspective, quiet autofocus and the smooth aperture control, the NIKKOR Z 85mm f/1.8 S is a fantastic lens perfectly suitable for documentary filmmaking and interviews.
Shoot video footage with beautifully shallow depth of field.
Whether it’s an emotional close-up or a night scene rich with bokeh, this 85 mm lens lets you isolate subjects beautifully.
Near-silent AF lets the quietest moment shine. The silent control ring lets you pull focus with absolute precision or create smooth iris transitions. Focus breathing is all but eliminated.
It can also be used for capturing B-roll footage and comes in handy anywhere the subject needs to be isolated from the background.
The wide, knurled control ring allows exact, intuitive operation. It can be used for silent aperture control or exposure compensation, and as a focus ring when shooting in Manual Focus.
Shoot in rain—or champagne! Every movable part of the lens barrel is sealed to protect from dust and water droplets making it perfect for urban street photography, interviews and documentary filmmaking.
