Nikon adds to its Z lens system

Nikon’s Z lens family gains a new member with the announcement of the Nikkor Z 85mm f/1.8 S

Ideal for people photography and with a fast maximum aperture for low-light shooting, the new 85mm f/1.8 S lens is a welcome option for users of Nikon’s full-frame mirrorless cameras. This short telephoto has a 12 elements in 8 groups construction including two extra low-dispersion elements to minimise lens aberrations and maximise resolution even at its close focusing distance of 80cm, and Nikon’s Nano Crystal Coating is used to combat flare and ghosting.

Autofocus is performed by ultra-quiet stepping motors and there’s minimal focus breathing, so this lens is ideally suited to video use too. The lens is also fully compatible with the five-axis image stabilisation systems built into the Z 6 and Z 7 cameras.

This exciting lens will be in the shops from early September 2019 and is priced at £799.
