Exceptional optical performance

Get ready to capture the world in stunning accuracy with the pairing of the NIKKOR Z 85mm f/1.2 S and your Z series camera. An f/1.2 S-Line lens with outstanding optical performance made possible with the Z mount – the largest mount in the industry, it enables users to capture the details of skin and hair textures beautifully and impressively, while at the same time produce large, beautiful bokeh that complements the subject. The maximum aperture of f/1.2 allows for more light to enter the sensor, which smoothly creates shapely round and large bokeh that is gradual and looks natural for an ethereal impression.

Achieve clear and sharp images, even under backlight situations, with the high-performance Nano Crystal Coat that eliminates most ghost and flare effect under strong sunlight or light source from the back of subjects. Chromatic and spherical aberrations are also reduced via two aspherical lens and one Extra-Low Dispersion (ED) glass elements.

Achieve sharper images with accurate focus

The lens is equipped a multi-focusing system with two stepping motors (STMs) to provide precise focusing on subjects with speed and accuracy even at its shallow depth of field of f/1.2. When used in conjunction with the camera’s Eye-Detection AF, users can easily capture portraits with the subject’s eyes in focus. Pair the lens with the Z 9 and enjoy more further support with the Enhanced Eye-/People-Detection performance which detects the subject when they turn around and also for smaller faces, subject tracking, and focusing in backlit situations.

In addition, users can expect smooth AF when performing slow focusing with the lens when filming videos.

Designed for seamless video shoots

Enjoy smooth and quiet operation from the lens’ STMs and ‘click-less’ control ring which effectively minimises unnecessary operational sounds in quiet settings such as weddings and corporate events. With effective focus-breathing compensation[1] from the lens, users can record videos with a natural shift in focus position and brightness level. Even when the focus point shifts from one subject to another, the angle of view is maintained thus creating videos that are smooth and natural with stable exposure.

Excellent reliability

Feel rest assured when capturing stills and videos with the NIKKOR Z 85mm f/1.2 S. It features superior dust- and drip-resistant performance[2] with a sealing on various moving sections of the lens barrel, and the adoption of a rubber gasket on the lens mount, which effectively prevents dust or water droplets from entering the lens.

Highly customisable, the lens, weighing approximately 1,160g, is designed with a L-Fn button for users to assign their favourite functions enabling one to quickly switch to their most-used settings without having to toggle the camera menu. Operate the lens intuitively as the controls are separated on each level of the lens.

The NIKKOR Z 85mm f/1.2 S’s finishing is best defined as functional with a touch of luxury, thanks to the improved coating texture resulting in a sharp form that extends throughout the lens. Users will also recognise the familiar and well-loved S metal emblem, a hallmark of the S-Line, that caps off the latest addition to the ever-expanding NIKKOR Z range.

[1] Focus-breathing may be noticeable depending on the distance between the lens and the subject due to the characteristics of the lens.

[2] Thorough dust- and drip-resistance is not guaranteed in all situations and under all conditions.


The NIKKOR Z 85mm f/1.2 S will be available from the end of March 2023 with the MRP of INR 2,57,995. For more information on the new NIKKOR Z 85mm f/1.2 S and other Nikon products, please visit
