Use the customizable control ring to create smooth iris transitions or let the automatic aperture control handle exposure changes.
Superior optical performance Rendering
Two extra-low dispersion (ED) elements correct for chromatic aberrations (color-related optical defects). Nanocrystalline (N) treatment virtually eliminates stray light, ghost images, and coma. Optical innovations in the Z mount and S series make light sources sharper than ever, without the usual diamond-shaped distortion; ideal for night shots, starry skies, etc.
One of the many advantages of the Z-mount width is its ability to trap light evenly, especially at the corners of the frame. The photos are clear, with constant exposure and very little vignetting.
Multiple focus system
Finely detailed high-resolution photography can sometimes be vulnerable to lens aberrations such as colored fringes, especially at short distances. The NIKKOR Z 85mm f / 1.8 S features the new multi-focus system, which consists of two fully synchronized AF control devices to provide fast and accurate autofocus and dramatically reduce aberrations.
