Details in every pixel.

Master the art of details. With superb S-Line optical performance, and lens construction using Extra-low Dispersion (ED) glass and aspherical lens elements, the NIKKOR Z 85mm f/1.2 S displays fine hair and skin texture in impeccable details with minimal chromatic and aspherical aberrations. Even under strong backlight sources, the performance of Nano Crystal Coat reduces most ghosting and flares to deliver high resolution and natural bokeh results.

Your subject. The focus of attention.

Revel your subject in a depth of bokeh. With an 11 diaphragm blades lens build, and its f/1.2 maximum aperture, the NIKKOR Z 85mm f/1.2 S is designed to produce round, soft and natural bokeh with minimum colour fringing, allowing your portraitures stand out amongst the crowd. The large diameter mount of the Z series system further lets in more light into the sensor, immersing your portrait creations in a dreamy shallow depth of field.
Get in focus. Fast.

Never miss another invaluable moment in time. With multiple stepping motors (STM) that work simultaneously for precise focusing, this powerful lens locks in focus quickly and accurately to capture your creations in high resolution readily, even with a shallow depth of field.
Artistry of cinematic.

Cinematic films or significant events, let your narratives inspire. Film with the multiple STMs that lock focus swiftly and a control ring that operates quietly.

Video-record at weddings, corporate events and more without letting stray operational sounds get in the way. Even when you are changing focus from one subject to another, the focus-breathing compensation feature maintains the angle of view to ensure a smooth and natural transition.
Seal out the unwanted elements.

The NIKKOR Z 85mm f/1.2 S, at approximately 1,160g and 102.5mm (D) × 141.5mm (L), is ready to go where your inspiration takes you. The sealing on various parts of the lens barrel, including a rubber gasket on the lens mount, provides remarkable dust- and drip- resistance¹ to block out any external elements.
