Nikon Nikkor Z 85 mm F1.8 S Lens Review (Lenstip): “Editors’ Choice”

Maciej Latałło has just posted a full review of the newly released Nikon Nikkor Z 85mm F1.8 S Lens (Amazon/ B&H/ Adorama) at the Lenstip. He tested this new lens on Nikon Z7 and found it is excellent for Nikon full-frame mirrorless cameras.

So many pros and only one cons below:


  • solid, sealed casing, mostly made of metal,
  • excellent image quality in the frame centre,
  • good image quality on the edge of the APS-C/DX sensor,
  • good image quality on the edge of full frame,
  • moderate longitudinal chromatic aberration,
  • practically zero lateral chromatic aberration,
  • low spherical aberration,
  • negligible distortion,
  • moderate vignetting on the APS-C/DX sensor,
  • lack of astigmatism related problems,
  • silent and accurate autofocus,
  • blurry areas pleasing to the eye.


  • distinct vignetting on full frame.

Below is the conclusion, “Despite the fact that the Nikkor Z 85 mm f/1.8 S fared a bit weaker in our test than the highly praised 50 mm lens, its excellent performance and a very long list of pros compared to just one position in the ‘cons’ section made us quite determined to award it our „Editors’ Choice” badge as well...”
