JMA301DARegular price $1,549.00
Elevated by advancements of the revolutionary Z mount, the NIKKOR Z 85mm f/1.8 S is a premium S-Line lens that blends optical ingenuity and artistic nuance. Flattering perspective. Breathtaking resolution. Stunning bokeh. Unwavering focus and lifelike accuracy compensation. This is an 85mm prime lens that will thrill and inspire those who shoot portraits, headshots, fashion, weddings, tight video shots, street photography or any situation that highlights the human form.
NIKKOR quality at its absolute best.
Few subjects showcase the strengths and shortcomings of a lens more clearly than the human face. Our eyes are so adept at detecting focus issues, facial shape distortion, unnatural skin tone—nearly any imperfection. The NIKKOR Z 85mm f/1.8 S captures the human form in breathtaking clarity and sharpness.
The shape of a face is greatly affected by focal length. The NIKKOR Z 85mm f/1.8 S’s 85mm perspective is within the sweet spot for portraits and fashion, rendering faces naturally and beautifully, free of distortion.
Z series' outstanding Eye-AF and the NIKKOR Z 85mm f/1.8 S’s extreme sharpness ensure your portraits and headshots will have tack-sharp focus right where you want it—on the eyes of your subject.
The extreme sharpness and resolution of the NIKKOR Z 85mm f/1.8 S makes it particularly well suited for capturing the subtlety and nuances of facial expressions and the emotions they convey.
Beautifully blurred backgrounds naturally, and sometimes dramatically, direct your viewer’s eyes to the main subject. The nine rounded aperture blades of the NIKKOR Z 85mm f/1.8 S give defocused points of light a soft, round consistent shape. Plus, the transition from tack-sharp foreground to dreamy background is smooth and natural.
The artistic qualities, natural perspective, quiet autofocus and smooth aperture control of the NIKKOR Z 85mm f/1.8 S make it outstanding for video work in documentaries, interviews, B-roll footage and anywhere you want to isolate your subject from the background. Use the customizable control ring to create smooth iris transitions, or let Auto Aperture Control adjust the iris during exposure changes.
2 Extra-low Dispersion (ED) elements correct chromatic aberrations (optical color defects). Nano Crystal Coat (N) virtually eliminates flare, ghosting and coma. Optical advancements of the Z mount and S-Line render point-light sources sharper than ever without the usual diamond-shaped distortion—perfect for nightscapes, starscapes and more.
One of the many advantages of the larger Z mount is its ability to retain even illumination, especially at the corners of the frame. This results in bright, even exposures with minimal vignetting.
Finely detailed high resolution photography can sometimes be susceptible to lens aberrations, such as color fringing, especially at close ranges. The NIKKOR Z 85mm f/1.8 S incorporates an all-new multi-focusing system, consisting of two AF drive units precisely synchronized to deliver fast, accurate autofocusing and drastically reduce aberrations.
Produces stunning bokeh and stops down smoothly and evenly for consistent exposures at any frame rate.
In addition to a dedicated manual focus ring, the control ring can be used for quiet aperture control (great for iris transitions during video recording or situations where complete silence is critical) or exposure compensation.
Uses Z cameras' superior in-camera image stabilization system for up to 5 stops of pitch, roll, yaw, X and Y shake correction when used with Z cameras that feature in-camera VR. Additional electronic VR (e-VR) during video capture.

Samyang AF 85mm F1.4 Sony FE
SY85830Regular price $1,499.00
The AF 85mm F1.4 FE cherishes Samyang’s world class optical technology while envisioning a new leap forward, with its quick and accurate autofocus performance and excellent resolution. Its complex optical construction is comprised of 11 glass elements, among which are special High Refractive (HR) glass, which successfully allow both a compact size and high image resolution. The achromatic design, incorporating Extra Low Dispersion (ED) glass, effectively corrects chromatic aberrations and minimizes peripheral softness, creating lively images in vivid colors.
The AF 85mm F1.4 FE’s optical design minimizes optical aberrations, while maximizing the image quality from corner to corner. Its detailed rendering results in exceptional image quality, even on the latest high-resolution full-frame cameras; and its bright maximum aperture means you can enjoy this excellent performance even when shooting indoors or in darker conditions.
The lens’s attractive bokeh, created through precise lens polishing, adds a great feeling of depth and space in your photographs. Also, its aperture mechanism comprises 9 precisely-controlled iris blades, providing natural, circular, out-of-focus highlights at all apertures. With this smooth bokeh, achieved through various optical technologies, you can create images full of character in your portrait or subject photography.
The short telephoto focal length, combined with the wide maximum aperture of f/1.4, enables photographers to achieve a dramatically shallow depth-of-field, setting your pictures apart from those taken with other lenses. This optic offers great creative freedom: it yields images with depth, while maintaining an appropriate distance from the subject; it separates subject and background naturally, providing an impressive visual feeling of depth.
The AF 85mm F1.4 FE features a total of 11 glass elements; the ED (Extra Low Dispersion) elements have been incorporated into its precise achromatic design. This design corrects chromatic aberrations, and creates quality results, with peripheral softness also being well-controlled.
Four HR (High Refractive) elements, made of special materials with an outstanding refractive index, improve optical performance and enable a compact optical design. The AF 85mm F1.4 FE was designed from the ground-up with this technology, to lessen its users’ burden with a shorter length and smaller size.
DLSM (Dual Linear Sonic Motor) works with ultrasonic vibrations, which cannot be heard by human ears, to successfully give a silent autofocus performance. The accurate high frequency signals, controlled with Samyang’s own protocols, precisely operate the DLSM. Specialists in optics, mechanical engineering, and electronics, have researched cooperatively to give these powerful results for a short telephoto lens. The introduction of DLSM technology on an 85mm lens means you can comfortably and silently capture the subjects you want, with quick efficiency.
The aluminum body, designed with precision by mechanical engineering specialists, has only three spaces in its basic design. Weather sealing covers even these small spaces to effectively protect the lens from dust and rain. This protective design enables users to capture the moment outdoors in any environment, providing the dependability you need to keep shooting.
Samyang’s Ultra Multi Coating (UMC) technology is applied through a thorough cleaning process, followed by Ion-Beam Sputtering (IBS), which controls the spread of reflections while still enabling a high transmittance of light. This UMC technology reduces unwanted reflections and provides crystal clear image quality, minimizing flare and ghosting effects in high contrast environments, such as backlit pictures and nightscapes.

SY85625Regular price $799.00
A Telephoto prime designed for APS-C-format Sony E-mount mirrorless cameras and provides a 127.5mm equivalent focal length. Bright f/1.8 maximum aperture suits working in difficult lighting conditions and also affords extensive control over depth of field for isolating subjects and working with selective focus techniques. One extra-low dispersion element is used to reduce color fringing and chromatic aberrations in order to produce imagery with a high degree of clarity and color fidelity. A high refractive index element is used to control spherical aberrations and distortions in order to realize higher sharpness and accurate rendering. An Ultra Multi-Coating has been applied to all lens elements in order to suppress lens flare and ghosting for increased contrast and color accuracy. Rounded nine-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing out-of-focus quality when using selective focus or shallow depth of field techniques.
