Exceptional optical performance
Get ready to capture the world in stunning accuracy with the pairing of the NIKKOR Z 85mm f/1.2 S and your Z series camera. An f/1.2 S-Line lens with outstanding optical performance enabling you to capture the details of skin and hair textures beautifully and impressively, while at the same time produce large, beautiful bokeh that complements your subject. The maximum aperture of f/1.2 allows for more light to enter the sensor, which smoothly creates shapely round and large bokeh that is gradual and looks natural for an ethereal impression.
Achieve clear and sharp images, even under backlight situations, with the high-performance Nano Crystal Coat that eliminates most ghost and flare effect under strong sunlight or light source from the back of subjects. Chromatic and spherical aberrations are also reduced via two aspherical lens and one Extra-Low Dispersion (ED) glass elements.
Achieve sharper images with accurate focus
The lens is equipped a multi-focusing system with two stepping motors (STMs) to provide precise focusing on subjects with speed and accuracy even at its shallow depth of field of f/1.2.
When used in conjunction with your camera’s Eye-Detection AF, you can easily capture portraits with the subject’s eyes in focus.
Pair the lens with the Z 9 and enjoy more further support with the Enhanced Eye-/People-Detection performance which detects the subject when they turn around and also for smaller faces, subject tracking, and focusing in backlit situations. In addition, you can expect smooth AF when performing slow focusing with the lens when filming videos.
Superior dust- and drip-resistant performance with sealing on various moving sections of the lens barrel, and the adoption of a rubber gasket on the lens mount, effectively prevents dust or water droplets from entering the lens for great peace of mind.
Highly customizableThe lens, weighing approximately 1,160g, is designed with a L-Fn button letting you assign your favourite functions so you can quickly switch to your most-used settings without having to toggle the camera menu.
Functional designThe NIKKOR Z 85mm f/1.2 S’s finishing is best defined as functional with a touch of luxury, thanks to the improved coating texture resulting in a sharp form that extends throughout the lens. Users will also recognize the familiar and well-loved S metal emblem, a hallmark of the S-Line, that caps off the latest addition to the ever-expanding NIKKOR Z range.
Designed for seamless video shoots
Enjoy smooth and quiet operation from the lens’ STMs and ‘click-less’ control ring which effectively minimises unnecessary operational sounds in quiet settings such as weddings and corporate events.
Focus-breathing CompensationWith effective focus-breathing compensation from the lens, users can record videos with a natural shift in focus position and brightness level. Even when the focus point shifts from one subject to another, the angle of view is maintained thus creating videos that are smooth and natural with stable exposure.
