nikkor-z-85mm-f-1.8-s-lens-600x450

Nikon has just officially announced the new Nikon Nikkor Z 85mm F1.8 S Lens. It is a short telephoto prime for the company’s full-frame mirrorless system, featuring 12 elements – two of which being aspherical – along with Super Integrated and Nano Crystal coatings, nine rounded aperture blades, a minimum focus distance of 0.8m (2.6ft) and max magnification of 0.12x and weather sealed. This new lens costs $796.95, first available for pre-order at Amazon/ B&H/ Adorama. It will start shipping from September 5, 2019.

Key features:

  • Prime portrait-length lens is designed for FX-format Z-mount mirrorless cameras.
  • Bright f/1.8 maximum aperture suits working in difficult lighting conditions and also offers increased control over depth of field for isolating subjects and working with selective focus.
  • Two extra-low dispersion elements greatly reduce color fringing and chromatic aberrations in order to produce greater clarity and color rendering.
  • A Nano Crystal Coat, along with a Super Integrated Coating, has been applied to lens elements to minimize surface and internal reflections for a marked reduction in lens flare and ghosting.
  • Multi-focus system incorporates two separate AF drive units, which are synchronized, to deliver especially fast and accurate focusing performance. This system uses stepping motors, which offer impressively smooth and quiet autofocus qualities, that are well-suited to both stills and video applications. Full-time manual focus override is also possible and an internal focusing design is used, where only the internal lens groups are moved during focusing, to maintain the overall length of the lens during use and to promote faster focusing speeds.
  • Programmable Control Ring is, by default, set to adjust manual focus, but can also be used to control aperture or exposure compensation.
  • Specialized electromagnetic aperture mechanism provides greater exposure control stability that is especially beneficial when working with fast continuous shooting rates.
  • Dust- and moisture-resistant lens barrel benefits the lens’ use in inclement conditions.
