Fast 85 mm f/1.8 portrait prime lens

From classic head-and-shoulder shots to environmental portraits, this mirrorless 85 mm full-frame lens will portray your subjects with heart-stopping clarity. Its advanced optical performance opens up new possibilities for detail and nuance, outshining even the f/1.4 primes that have preceded it.

Any moment. Remarkable portraits.

Intimate settings or big events. Staged shots or candid. This fast 85 mm f/1.8 portrait lens offers superb agility. The wide Nikon Z mount enables brilliant detail throughout the frame, even when you shoot with available light. Focusing is fast, and your Nikon Z camera can lock onto your subject’s eye whether they’re alone or a face in a crowd.

Real depth – Bokeh is beautifully natural-looking and smoothly graded to the edges of the frame. Your point of focus is always rendered sharply and highlights are reproduced as gentle points.

Fine detail – Skin tones are natural and edge-to-edge sharpness is superb—even when you shoot wide open. A minimum focus distance of just 0.80 m puts you in control of the frame, from close-up to infinity.

Backlit beauty – No matter the setting, Nikon’s anti-reflective Nano Crystal Coat combats ghosting and flare for greater image clarity. Every component of a scene is perfectly reproduced, even in backlit conditions.

Character-driven

Shoot video footage with beautifully shallow depth of field. Whether it’s an emotional close-up or a night scene rich with bokeh, this 85 mm lens lets you isolate subjects beautifully. Near-silent AF lets the quietest moment shine. The silent control ring lets you pull focus with absolute precision. Focus breathing is all but eliminated.

Instinctive control – Flow freely. The wide, knurled control ring allows exact, intuitive operation. It can be used for silent aperture control or exposure compensation, and as a focus ring when shooting in Manual Focus.

Wherever you go – Shoot in rain—or champagne! Every movable part of the lens barrel is sealed to protect from dust and water droplets.
