Nikon Z 85mm f1.8 S Lens
Fast 85 mm f/1.8 portrait prime lens
From classic head-and shoulder shots to environmental portraits, this mirrorless 85 mm full-frame lens will portray your subjects with heart-stopping clarity. Its advanced optical performance opens up new possibilities for detail and nuance, outshining even the f/1.4 primes that have preceded it.
Any moment. Remarkable portraits.
Intimate settings or big events. Staged shots or candid. This fast 85 mm f/1.8 portrait lens offers superb agility. The wide Nikon Z mount enables brilliant detail throughout the frame, even when you shoot with available light. Focusing is fast, and your Nikon Z camera can lock onto your subject’s eye whether they’re alone or a face in a crowd.
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.
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.
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. Focus breathing is all but eliminated.
Flow freely. 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.
Wherever you go
Shoot in rain—or champagne! Every movable part of the lens barrel is sealed to protect from dust and water droplets.
