$800 F1.8 aperture portrait mirror
On July 31, 2019, Nikon (China) Co., Ltd. officially released the sixth lens of the full-frame micro-single Z system on its official website – Nikon Z 85mm F1.8 S. This mid-range F1.8 aperture portrait fixed-focus lens and the previously released Z 35mm F1.8 S and Z 50mm F1.8 S two lenses form the Z-mount “F1.8 lens group”. According to official data, the Nikon Z 85mm F1.8 S pursues a more natural blurring effect, as well as excellent resolution from the center to the edge when the aperture is fully open, and various types of aberrations such as large aperture vignetting, axial dispersion, etc. Correction. The overseas offer of this lens is 799.95 US dollars, about 5504.6 yuan, the price is similar to the previously introduced Z 35mm F1.8 S.
Nikon Z 85mm F1.8 S main technical features:
As the focal plane is farther and farther away, the blurring effect is gradually enhanced, and the natural blurring is used to realize the stereoscopic effect that is crucial for portrait photography.
The image is sharp and sharp to the edges, in sharp contrast to the smooth and beautiful blur
Multi-focus system for significantly reduced aberrations and excellent imaging performance at a wide range of focusing distances including close range
Effectively compensates for axial chromatic aberration with 2 low dispersion (ED) lenses
Ample light is available at the edges of the image, and there is no need to worry about brightness reduction at maximum aperture.
Nano-crystalline coating with Nikon anti-reflective coating technology to reduce ghosting and glare, showing sharp and sharp images
Effectively reduces sagittal coma and provides good point image restoration performance from maximum aperture
The control ring has good operability and provides quiet and smooth operation.
Stepper motor for fast, quiet and accurate autofocus drive for photo and video recording
Quiet and smooth iris control optimized for video recording to reduce flicker
Electromagnetic aperture device provides accurate aperture control
The Nikon Z 85mm F1.8 S features eight 12-piece optical structures, including two ED lenses, and Nikon’s own nano-crystalline coating for better control of glare and ghosting. From the sample effect point of view, the lens’s out-of-focus imaging pursues a moderate natural effect, rather than a “fog-like cream-like opening” lens, the outline and aperture erosion of the focus are more obvious.
In terms of the autofocus system, the Nikon Z 85mm F1.8 S is equipped with a stepper focus drive system that uses two sets of drive units to increase the focus speed of the lens, which is especially true for large aperture lenses with high focus accuracy requirements. It is important. In addition, the lens focus ring is in the form of an electronic ring. In addition to being used as manual focus, it can also be assigned to other custom functions.
