Nikon has added to their range of incredible Nikkor Z prime lenses with the Nikon NIKKOR Z 85mm f1.2 S lens. This classic 85mm focal length is ideal for fine-art portraiture and fashion photography. With an ultra-fast rounded f1.2 aperture you can have perfect aesthetic control in any light conditions and create beautiful high-quality images with stunningly smooth bokeh and an ultra-shallow depth of field.

Excellent Colour Clarity
This Nikkor S lens has been designed with expert optic technology to reproduce skin tones, patterns and textures accurately. This clarity can be seen throughout the frame in exceptional clarity and detail thanks to Nikon’s nano-crystal coating, which helps to control light dispersion and prevent ghosting and flare.

Sealed Body
This Nikkor z 85mm lens has been created with extensive sealing at the barrel joints and buttons, along with a rubber gasket. These weather-sealing features assist in preventing dust or moisture from entering the lens. Providing you with peace of mind when you are shooting outdoors in changing and unpredictable weather conditions.

Customisable Lens Controls
The function button on the lens is fully customisable and ergonomically designed for easy reach, letting you change your settings without breaking eye contact with your subject.

Precise Autofocus
This ultra-fast lens allows for fast precise autofocus function when paired with your Nikon Z camera, even in low light situations.

Nikon expands its range of high-performance S-Line lenses with the NIKKOR Z 85mm f/1.2 S. With its ultra-fast f/1.2 maximum aperture, exquisite bokeh, and incredibly precise autofocus—this Z series mirrorless lens is the ultimate portrait prime. Optimised for the remarkable light-gathering capability of the Z mount, the NIKKOR Z 85mm f/1.2 S offers incredible brightness and detail. It opens up new possibilities for aesthetic control, giving photographers the chance to reimagine what a portrait lens can do.

The spectacular resolving power of this professional portrait lens allows for the masterful reproduction of skin tones and fine details in clothing or make up. Combined with the lens’ ultra-shallow depth of field and creamy bokeh, images take on an almost three-dimensional quality. The bokeh itself is nothing short of sublime: perfectly round, smoothly graded, and with no discernible fringing even around point light sources. For those whose creative vision includes dramatic backlighting—ghosting, reflections, and flare are all thoroughly countered. Even when shooting straight into harsh light sources, the lens enables you to achieve sharp and clear results. Autofocus is meticulous, enabling photographers to confidently meet the challenge of shooting at f/1.2 and working with a razor-thin focal plane. The lens’ controls are fully customisable and easy to reach, which is ideal when wanting to shoot without breaking eye contact with a subject. In addition, the solid body is extensively sealed to ensure that photographers can work without worrying about the lens—even in dusty locations or changeable weather.

Understanding: Aperture

Aperture is the opening in a camera lens that controls how much light enters the camera. It's measured in f-stops like f/2.8 or f/8. Lower f-stop numbers mean wider openings, letting in more light and creating a shallow depth of field (blurry background). Higher f-stop numbers mean smaller openings, letting in less light and creating a larger depth of field (more of the scene in focus). Aperture also affects the quality of out-of-focus areas in the image (bokeh).

Understanding: Lens Types

Different lenses have different purposes to achieve different styles of images, some popular ones include:
Prime Lens: Fixed focal length, sharp images, great for portraits and dark settings.
Zoom Lens: Variable focal length, versatile for different shots and everyday use..
Wide-Angle Lens: Captures wide scenes like landscapes.
Telephoto Lens: Magnifies distant subjects, ideal for sports & wildlife.
Macro Lens: Perfect for close-up photography of small subjects.
Fisheye Lens: Ultra-wide perspective, creates unique images.

Understanding: Lens Mounts

Different camera brands use different lens mounts, which are like connectors that attach lenses to camera bodies. Each mount is specific to a particular brand and camera series. For example, Canon uses the EF and RF mounts, Nikon uses the F mount, Sony uses the E mount for its mirrorless cameras. These mounts dictate which lenses are compatible with which cameras. Some brands offer adapters to use lenses from other systems, but it's essential to ensure compatibility for proper functionality and autofocus performance.

Understanding: Manual and Autofocus

Manual focus and autofocus are two ways to adjust the sharpness of a camera lens. With manual focus, you turn a ring on the lens to bring the subject into focus yourself, giving you full control over what appears sharp in the image. Autofocus, on the other hand, relies on the camera's built-in technology to automatically adjust the focus for you, usually by detecting contrast or phase differences in the scene. Autofocus can be convenient, especially for fast-moving subjects or when you need to capture a quick shot, whereas manual focus allows for precise adjustments and creative control over the final image.
