The Viltrox 85mm f/1.8 Z full-frame autofocus mirrorless lens for Z-mount (85/1.8Z) will be announced on December 10th (priced around $350)


The previously rumored Viltrox 85mm f/1.8 Z full-frame autofocus mirrorless lens for Nikon Z-mount (85/1.8Z) will be announced on December 10th and will be available for pre-order at the Viltrox online store. If I am not mistaken, this would be the first third-party autofocus lens for Nikon Z-mount. The new lens should have the same optical construction and autofocus motor as the Sony FE version. The price of the lens will be 2,299 RMB (around $350) – compare it to the Nikkor Z 85mm f/1.8 S lens that is currently priced at $697 after a $100 rebate (see all Nikon rebates).

In the US Viltrox lenses are sold at AdoramaB&H, and Amazon. You can use coupon code NIKONRUMORS for 10% off at the official Viltrox online store.

Viltrox already has a 20mm f/1.8 full-frame mirrorless lens for Nikon Z-mount (now in stock at Amazon, but you can get it cheaper directly from Viltrox).

A promo video of the new lens can be found on Weibo:
