The NIKKOR Z 85mm f/1.2 S is an ultra-fast, professional portrait lens with extraordinary bokeh, resolution, and sharpness. Whether you shoot fashion, fine art, editorial, or event portraiture—this incredible 85 mm prime will embrace your vision perfectly.
The quality of bokeh this portrait lens produces is exquisite. An 11-blade rounded aperture and advanced optical design result in large, soft bokeh that’s perfectly round and smoothly graded, with no fringing—even around point light sources. Combined with the ultra-shallow depth of field achieved at f/1.2, you can isolate even the smallest subject details. Everything else will gently fade away.
Specialised lens elements and Nikon’s anti-reflective Nano Crystal Coat control light dispersion and prevent ghosting, reflections, and flare. If a portrait with dramatic backlighting is part of your creative vision, you can shoot directly into harsh light sources, and still capture the sharpest, clearest images imaginable.
The art of precision
The glint of an eye. The curve of an eyelash. With two groups of lens elements moving in precise synchronisation, this lens’ quiet multi-focusing system powers meticulous AF that will keep your intended point of focus sharp. You’ll confidently meet the challenge of shooting at f/1.2 and working with a razor-thin focal plane, whether your subject is perfectly still or moving about.
Let the eyes do the talking
Use this 85 mm portrait lens with Eye-Detection AF, and your Nikon Z camera will find your subject’s eyes—and maintain focus—no matter how they move. Every frame will be flawless. You’ll never need to say ‘can you do that again’ again.
