Nikon Z System. The Nikon Z 85mm f/1.8 S was designed specifically for cameras in Nikon’s full-frame Z-mount system. Z-mount lenses only work with Z-mount cameras, and Z-mount cameras are only compatible with Z-mount lenses.
Portrait-Length Prime. The 85mm focal length, extreme sharpness, and pleasing bokeh make this an excellent portrait lens. Its also great for documentaries, interviews, B-roll, and any other situation in which you want to isolate your subject from the background.
High-Quality Optics. The Nikon 85mm f/1.8’s eight-group/twelve-element optical design features two extra-low dispersion elements to promote sharpness and color rendering while limiting chromatic aberrations. Nikon has applied Nano Crystal and Super Integrated coatings to the elements to combat ghosting and lens flare, even when you’re working in bright or backlit conditions.
Fast Aperture. The f/1.8 aperture allows a high degree of subject/background isolation desired for portraiture. It also enables the lens to be very useful for low-light shooting. The nine rounded aperture blades contribute to smooth bokeh.
Multi-Focus Autofocus System. The multi-focus system uses two separate, synchronized autofocus-drive units to give you fast, silent, and smooth operation for photo and video applications. Pairing a speedy AF system together with a continuous manual mechanism allows you to hit your focus with confidence, while the internal-focusing design means that the lens maintains its length during focusing.
Durable Build. This lens’s durable, moisture-resistant construction means you can use it in adverse conditions without worry. The exposed elements have a fluorine coating to protect them from debris and smearing. A programmable control ring lets you adjust manual focus, aperture, or exposure compensation.
