True to life definitions.

Bring details to life with the NIKKOR Z 85mm f/1.2 S. This S-Line portrait lens renders intricate attributes from close-up to infinity in unparalleled realism and depth, with a natural bokeh effect that emphasises the subject, thanks to its fast constant maximum aperture of f/1.2. A multi-focusing autofocus (AF) system ensures that your intended subject is rendered in high-resolution swiftly, time after time.

Details in every pixel.

Master the art of details. With superb S-Line optical performance, and lens construction using Extra-low Dispersion (ED) glass and aspherical lens  elements, the NIKKOR Z 85mm f/1.2 S displays fine hair and skin texture in impeccable details with minimal chromatic and aspherical aberrations. Even under strong backlight sources, the performance of Nano Crystal Coat reduces most ghosting and flares to deliver high resolution and natural bokeh results.

Your subject.
The focus of attention.

Revel your subject in a depth of bokeh. With an 11 diaphragm blades lens build, and its f/1.2 maximum aperture, the NIKKOR Z 85mm f/1.2 S is designed to produce round, soft and natural bokeh with minimum colour fringing, allowing your portraitures stand out amongst the crowd. The large diameter mount of the Z series system further lets in more light into the sensor, immersing your portrait creations in a dreamy shallow depth of field.

Get in focus. Fast.

Never miss another invaluable moment in time. With multiple stepping motors (STM) that work simultaneously for precise focusing, this powerful lens locks in focus quickly and accurately to capture your creations in high resolution readily, even with a shallow depth of field.

Artistry of cinematic.

Cinematic films or significant events, let your narratives inspire. Film with the multiple STMs that lock focus swiftly and a control ring that operates quietly.

Video-record at weddings, corporate events and more without letting stray operational sounds get in the way. Even when you are changing focus from one subject to another, the focus-breathing compensation feature maintains the angle of view to ensure a smooth and natural transition.

Seal out the unwanted elements.

The NIKKOR Z 85mm f/1.2 S, at approximately 1,160g and 102.5mm (D) × 141.5mm (L), is ready to go where your inspiration takes you. The sealing on various parts of the lens barrel, including a rubber gasket on the lens mount, provides remarkable dust- and drip- resistance¹ to block out any external elements.

Stepping Motor

NIKKOR Z lenses use a stepping motor for fast, accurate, smooth, quiet autofocus with reduced wobbling. This quiet drive system makes the lenses ideal for use when shooting video.

Electromagnetic Diaphragm Mechanism

An electromagnetic diaphragm mechanism in the lens barrel provides highly accurate electronic diaphragm or aperture blade control when using auto exposure during continuous shooting.

Aspherical Lens

A lens with a curved, non-spherical surface. Used to reduce aberrations and enable a more compact lens size. Aspherical lenses minimise coma and other types of lens aberrations, even when used at the widest aperture. They are particularly useful in correcting distortion in wide-angle lenses and help contribute to a lighter, more compact design by reducing the number of standard (spherical) elements necessary. Aspherical lens elements correct these distortions by continuously changing the refractive index from the centre of the lens.

ED (Extra-Low Dispersion) Glass

An optical glass developed by Nikon that is used with normal optical glass in telephoto lenses to obtain optimum correction of chromatic aberrations.

Nano Crystal Coat

An anti-reflective coating developed by Nikon that virtually eliminates internal lens element reflections across a wide range of wavelengths. Nano Crystal Coat solves ghost effects caused by red light and effectively reduces ghost and flare caused by light entering the lens diagonally.
