Nikon has affirmed its commitment to expanding its line of interchangeable lenses for its Z-Series of full-frame mirrorless cameras by announcing the new Nikkor Z 85mm f/1.8 S prime lens. According to Nikon, the new lens will be a versatile lens that’s idea for, “portraits, fashion photography, event images, tight interview shots or B-roll footage that add emphasis to any scene. This is also the latest lens to join the Nikkor S-Line, representing pinnacle in optical superiority and construction.”
Nikon also says the new lens has “a fast f/1.8 maximum aperture” for shooting in low light and to capture images with dramatic shallow depth-of-field. As with other Z-series lenses, the image-stabilization system relies on the Z-series camera bodies’ in-camera 5-axis VR.
