Capture Stunning Portraits with the Nikon Z 85mm f/1.8

This Nikon Z-series lens is perfect for capturing beautiful portraits. The 85mm focal length creates a flattering compression effect, while the 9-blade ultra-wide f/1.8 circular aperture and prime lens optics combine to deliver sharp focus and a soft, bokeh-filled shallow depth of field.

Portrait Perfect Prime 85mm Lens

The benefit of shooting portraits with a focal length of 85mm, is that it lends itself quite well to creating images with a stunningly shallow depth of field. This exaggeration between what is in and out-of-focus gives shooters enhanced creative freedom for visual storytelling.

Ultra-Bright and Fast Glass

Take advantage of the f/1.8 aperture on the Nikon 85mm lens and shoot wide open, to collect more light, ideal for low-light conditions. The bright aperture isn't just for dark scenes though, it unlocks faster shutter speeds to freeze fast-moving subjects. Most importantly though the f/1.8 aperture renders the background of your shot with a soft bokeh, bringing the attention to your subject.

Professional Handling and Performance

Made for discerning shooters, the lens is lightweight and great for long wedding and portrait sessions. The lens has a customisable ring that doubles as a focus control when in MF mode, as well as a focus mode selector switch. The elements are treated with nano-coating to reduce reflections and increase contrast.

High-Resolution Optics

Nikon has designed the Z-series 85mm and paid close attention to the optical construction of the lens to ensure it is able to resolve images up to an incredibly high resolution. This is achieved using 12 individual optical elements arranged in 8 different groups, two of which are Extra-Low Dispersion (ED) elements that reduce colour fringing and correct aberrations for refined optical performance.

Designed for Nikon Z Mirrorless Cameras

The Nikon 85mm f/1.8 Z-series lens has been constructed specifically for Nikon's popular Z-series mirrorless cameras, with a lightweight style and distinctive design that makes it a perfect match for either the Z6 or Z7 cameras from Nikon. It pairs well with their existing range of S-series primes, delivering the ultimate low-light and shallow depth-of-field performance.
