Nikon Z 85mm f/1.2 S Lens Summary

Nikon Z 85mm f/1.2 S Lens , delivering professional S-Line quality for advanced Nikon mirrorless camera users. The classic short telephoto full-frame (FX) prime offers extraordinary bokeh, sharpness and resolution for demanding professionals who shoot anything from fashion and fine art, to editorial, weddings and portraiture.

With reassuring weight thanks to advanced optics and a wide 11-bladed aperture, this mirrorless Nikon lens is capable of capturing large, soft and rounded bokeh with no fringing, even around point light sources. A wide maximum f/1.2 aperture contributes to the professional results, which you can achieve with the Z 85mm f/1.2 S, isolating even tiny details with a shallow depth of field as the rest of the image melts away.

Nikon Z 85mm f/1.2 S Lens in More Detail

S-Line quality

The Z 85mm f/1.2 S Lens from Nikon is subject to stringent standards in order to provide real world benefits, which include exceptional results with edge to edge sharpness and clarity even when shooting wide open.

The optical formula of 15 elements 10 groups (including 1ED, 2 aspherical and Nano crystal coat) has been developed to offer superior resolution, with no colour fringing. This results in superb reproduction, even at the widest f/1.2 aperture.

Classic prime for portraiture

With a classic focal length, the Z 85mm f/1.2 S is ready to capture exquisite portraits, as well as being an excellent choice for fashion, weddings and fine art photography. An 11-bladed aperture combined with the optical design result in beautiful soft and rounded bokeh, perfect for isolating even the tiniest details in the frame. No fringing is noticeable, even around light sources, allowing you to capture extremely shallow depth of field results, with a background which simply melts away.

Multi-focus system

Lens aberrations, such as colour fringing, are common especially at close ranges when capturing high resolution images. Nikon’s innovative multi-focusing system, which consists of two precisely synchronised AF drive units deliver fast, accurate autofocusing whilst reducing aberrations.

Anti-reflective Nano coat

When combined with the special lens elements, Nikon’s Nano coat controls lights dispersion and prevents ghosting and flare in the image. This allows you to shoot directly into harsh light sources, while still capturing sharp and clear results to meet your creative vision.


For filmmakers, the Z 85mm f/1.2 S Lens offers useful features including a control ring for smooth diaphragm control with minimal sound from the multi-focusing system. Focus-breathing compensation means no angle of view shifting when changing the focus point during a scene. A close minimum focus distance of just 85cm also allows you to create cinematic close-up shots with a shallow depth of field.

Supports professional workflows with customisable control

Advanced users can adjust settings on the Nikon Z 85mm f/1.2 S, without removing their eye from the EVF thanks to a range of customisable controls. Assign functions to the L-Fn button such as subject tracking, AF lock and use the control ring to adjust aperture, exposure compensation or ISO.

Extensive weather sealing

Continue shooting in challenging environments thanks to comprehensive seals at the barrel joints and buttons. A rubber gasket on the wide Z mount also prevents dust, dirt and moisture from entering the lens for excellent environmental resistance.

Our Verdict

Nikon’s range of high-quality S-Line lenses continues to grow, with the addition of this short telephoto Z 85mm f/1.2 S prime, which joins the previously released Nikon Z 50mm F/1.2 S Lens. The 85mm provides a classic focal length, which is a highly regarded option for portraits, fashion, weddings, fine art and editorial shoots. It brings high-end S-line optical quality to mirrorless users, which ensures extraordinary bokeh, sharpness and high resolving power, drawing out beautiful detail from Nikon’s sensor designs.

The combination of wide f/1.2 maximum aperture, optical design and an 11-bladed diaphragm render an extremely shallow depth of field and exceptionally pleasing bokeh. This allows you to experiment with subject separation, with even the smallest details remaining sharp in the frame while the rest of the image melts away. Rounded bokeh balls remain uniform across the frame, with minimal fringing and high clarity. This remains the case even when shooting directly into light sources thanks to Nikon’s tried-and-tested Nano coat, which prevents ghosting and flare whilst reducing reflections and controlling dispersion.

Whether you shoot stills, video or both, the Nikon Z 85mm f/1.2 S lens delivers beautifully, with silent focus, versatile customisation and responsiveness, which we have come to expect from S-Line lenses.
