Nikon has welcomed a bright new standard portrait lens to the Nikon Z family – the NIKKOR Z 85mm f/1.8 S. The NIKKOR Z 85mm f/1.8 S is a fast-focusing lens that delivers incredible detail throughout the frame. Whether shooting stills or video, this full-frame mirrorless lens lets photographers portray subjects with astonishing clarity.

From classic head-and-shoulder shots to environmental portraits, intimate settings to big events,the advanced optical performance of the NIKKOR Z 85mm f/1.8 S enables stunning results in any location. Edge-to-edge sharpness is superb - even when shooting at the widest aperture of f/1.8. Bokeh is beautifully natural-looking and lens flare is effectively countered even in backlit situations.
Focusing is also incredibly fast, and the new Eye-Detection feature of the Nikon Z cameras can lock onto a subject’s eye whether they’re alone or a face in a crowd. Movie shooters can utilise the 85mm focal length to isolate subjects, and shoot video footage with stunning shallow depth of field.
