First hands-on review of the new Nikon Nikkor Z 85mm f/1.8 S mirrorless lens




Nikonland (Google translation) published their first hands-on review of the new Nikon Nikkor Z 85mm f/1.8 S lens (warning: NSFW sample photo present in the review):

  • The lens is made of magnesium and polycarbonate alloy, similar to the twin 50mm f/1.8 S
  • Made in China
  • The optical scheme is complex and includes two ED (and no aspherical) lenses
  • The diaphragm has nine blades
  • It is built with tight gaskets
  • The chromatic aberration of the older versions has almost completely disappeared
  • The new Z lenses represent much more than the current Z bodies
  • Has integrated the Nikon multifocusing device (there are two focusing motors that work in sync by moving different optical groups) for precision focusing at any distance
  • "The results are convincing, concrete and professional"
