Pure Natural Beauty
Few subjects showcase the strengths and shortcomings of a lens more clearly than the human face. Our eyes are so adept at detecting focus issues, facial shape distortion, unnatural skin tone—nearly any imperfection. The NIKKOR Z 85mm f/1.8 S captures the human form in breathtaking clarity and sharpness. Z series' outstanding Eye-AF and the NIKKOR Z 85mm f/1.8 S’s extreme sharpness ensure your portraits and headshots will have tack-sharp focus right where you want it—on the eyes of your subject. One of the many advantages of the larger Z mount is its ability to retain even illumination, especially at the corners of the frame. This results in bright, even exposures with minimal vignetting.
Beautifully blurred backgrounds naturally, and sometimes dramatically, direct your viewer’s eyes to the main subject. The nine rounded aperture blades of the NIKKOR Z 85mm f/1.8 S give defocused points of light a soft, round consistent shape. Plus, the transition from tack-sharp foreground to dreamy background is smooth and natural. 9-Blade rounded diaphragm produces stunning bokeh and stops down smoothly and evenly for consistent exposures at any frame rate. Autofocus powered by an ultra-quiet stepping motor and enhanced by the additional light gathered by the Z Mount, focusing is fast, silent and accurate. Great for stills; even better for video.
