CAPTURE REMARKABLE PORTRAITS WITH NIKON’S NEW NIKKOR Z 85MM F/1.8 S LENS
Amsterdam, The Netherlands, 31st July 2019: Nikon welcomes a bright standard portrait lens to the Nikon Z family. The NIKKOR Z 85mm f/1.8 S is a fast-focusing lens that delivers incredible detail throughout the frame. Whether shooting stills or video, this full-frame mirrorless lens lets photographers portray subjects with heart-stopping clarity.
From classic head-and-shoulder shots to environmental portraits, or intimate settings to big events. The advanced optical performance of the NIKKOR Z 85mm f/1.8 S enables stunning results in any location. Edge-to-edge sharpness is superb—even when shooting at the widest aperture of f/1.8. Bokeh is beautifully natural-looking and lens flare is effectively countered even in backlit situations.
Focusing is fast, and the new Eye-Detection feature of the Nikon Z cameras can lock onto a subject’s eye whether they’re alone or a face in a crowd. Movie shooters can use the 85mm focal length to isolate subjects, and shoot video footage with stunning shallow depth of field.
