Nikon's NIKKOR Z 85mm f/1.8 S is a short-telephoto prime lens characterized by its flattering focal length and bright f/1.8 aperture. The maximum aperture is hand-held, yet compact and weighs only 1,080 grams. While it is fast enough to operate even in poor lighting, it remains sleek enough to be operated handheld. Additionally, the manual focus adjustment is always available for both stills and video. The camera also has a programmable control ring that enables intuitive adjustments of the camera and exposure. In conjunction with two-stepping motors, the optical design and multi-focus system of the camera makes autofocus fast, precise, and quiet here are two optical components with very low dispersion that, together, reduce colour fringing and chromatic aberrations, helping to improve clarity and colour quality. Nano Crystal and Super Integrated Coatings are both used to reduce flares and ghosting, as well as improve the overall fidelity of colours and overall contrast
Mirrorless cameras with fx-format z-mount can use this prime portrait lens.
In difficult lighting conditions, this bright maximum aperture is ideal, giving you more control of the depth of field when isolating subjects and working with selective focus.
In order to achieve greater clarity and colour rendering, two extra-low dispersion elements are widely used.
In addition to a nanocrystal coat, a super integrated coating has been applied to lens elements in order to reduce surface and internal reflections, resulting in limited flare and ghosting.
A dual autofocus drive system provides fast, accurate and consistent focusing performance by using two separate af drive units, which are synchronized. This system uses stepping motors, which offer impressively smooth and quiet autofocus qualities, that are well-suited to both stills and video applications.
The lens can also be manually focused full-time, and it has an internal focusing design, where only the internal lens groups are moved to facilitate faster-focusing speeds and to maintain the overall length of the lens during use.
In addition to controlling manual focus, the programmable control ring can also control aperture and exposure compensation.
In conjunction with fast continuous shutter rates, an electromagnetic aperture mechanism offers greater exposure control stability.
Lens barrels made from dust and moisture-resistant materials allow the lenses to be used in wet or humid environments.
