Classic view. Exotic aperture.
Among photo and video pros shooting portraiture, weddings, maternity, high fashion and boudoir, the NIKKOR Z 85mm f/1.2 S is bound to become a legend. Breathtaking realism with dreamlike depth. Backgrounds that melt away into a soft bokeh. Beautifully flattering compression. Autofocus you can trust with once-in-a-lifetime moments.
- 85mm Ideal Portrait Focal Length
- f/1.2 Exceptionally Fast Aperture
- Prime Fixed Focal Length
- S-Line Supreme Optics & Design
- Z Mount The Largest Diameter Full Frame
Cherished focal length.
With its flattering slimming effect, intimate yet comfortable working distance and light telephoto compression, an 85mm prime is ideal for capturing authentic human expression.
Bokeh beyond belief.
The fast f/1.2 aperture is shaped by 11 rounded blades, more than most lenses, for smoother, rounder, more natural blur. At f/2, point light sources transform into dreamlike orbs and out of focus areas dissolve into a painterly haze.
Nikon’s larger Z mount increases the light gathering performance of the f/1.2 aperture, flooding the image sensor with light and allowing you to shoot in near darkness.
Natural backlighting like sunsets can create some of the most glamorous. dramatic shotsespecially at weddings. Nikons Nano Crystal Coat (N) offers extraordinary tolerance to backlighting, glare and flare, while Extra-Low Dispersion (ED) and Aspherical Lens Elements (AS) prevent color fringing and aberration.
Dramatic focus transitions
Enable linear focusing for controlled, accurate manual focus pulling, or let the camera do the work with near-silent Eye-Detect AF. Focus breathing is highly suppressed, so you won’t notice an apparent change to field of view when moving focus from one subject to another.
Autofocus as decisive as the moment.
There’s no second chance for once-in-a-lifetime moments. Nikon’s Multi-Focus System uses dual STM stepping motors moving in sync for flawless precision, even when shooting wide open at f/1.2 where mere millimeters matter.
Built for pros.
ED (Extra-Low Dispersion) GlassAn optical glass developed by Nikon that is used with normal optical glass in telephoto lenses to obtain optimum correction of chromatic aberrations.
Aspherical LensA lens with a curved, non-spherical surface. Used to reduce aberrations and enable a more compact lens size. Aspherical lenses minimize coma and other types of lens aberrations, even when used at the widest aperture. They are particularly useful in correcting distortion in wide-angle lenses and help contribute to a lighter, more compact design by reducing the number of standard (spherical) elements necessary. Aspherical lens elements correct these distortions by continuously changing the refractive index from the centre of the lens.
IF LensA NIKKOR lens in which only the internal lens group shifts during focusing. Thus, IF NIKKORS do not change in size during AF operation, allowing for compact, lightweight lenses capable of closer focusing distances. These lenses will be designated with the abbreviation IF on the lens barrel.
A/MA/M stands for Auto-Priority Manual Mode. This mode also enables an easy transition from autofocus to manual during AF operation. However, mode switch sensitivity has been altered to reduce the possibility of sudden unintentional switching to manual focus while shooting.
Electromagnetic Diaphragm MechanismAn electromagnetic diaphragm mechanism in the lens barrel provides highly accurate electronic diaphragm or aperture blade control when using auto exposure during continuous shooting.
Nano Crystal CoatAn anti-reflective coating developed by Nikon that virtually eliminates internal lens element reflections across a wide range of wavelengths. Nano Crystal Coat solves ghost effects caused by red light and effectively reduces ghost and flare caused by light entering the lens diagonally.
