Pickup or Delivery
The Nikon Z 85mm f/1.8 S is part of Nikon's new full frame mirrorless system. To support the optical technologies of this new system, a new mount type Z has been introduced. Z lenses take full advantage of the benefits of a mirrorless design.
Lens and Sensor Distance
The distance between the Z lens' mount and the surface of the Z sensor has been reduced from 46.5mm in the F system to a mere 16mm. Having larger optical elements very close to the sensor means fewer aberrations, greater brightness, and better image performance overall. Speed and volume of communication between the lens and camera is also increased.
Control and Customization
Z lenses provide the unique ability to assign certain shooting functions directly to the lens. A special tactile control ring on the barrel of the lens can be assigned to functions like aperture value and exposure compensation, or kept as a manual focus ring by default. An integrated stepping motor (STM) focus drive system exhibits smooth, silent, and ultra-quick AF performance to meet the demands of video shooting.
This telephoto prime combines a large maximum aperture with extreme portability (this lens is under 4" long and only a pound). Nano Crystal and Super Integrated Coatings have been applied to suppress flare, reduce ghosting, and increase color fidelity. A specialized electromagnetic aperture mechanism provides greater exposure control, ensuring even and stable performance when working with fast continuous shooting rates.
The Nikon Z 85mm f/1.8 S is an ideal choice for portrait and sports/wildlife photography. Its smooth AF performance makes it perfect for shooting video and would be a great photo/video hybrid lens for weddings and other major events.
