NIKKOR Z 85mm f/1.8 S Lens with UV Filter Kit Overview

By B&H Photo's

Complementing the lens itself, the Nikon NIKKOR Z 85mm f/1.8 S Lens with UV Filter Kit from B&H bundles the portrait-length prime with a 67mm UV filter.

Nikon NIKKOR Z 85mm f/1.8 S Lens

Popular for portraiture, the NIKKOR Z 85mm f/1.8 S from Nikon is a short-telephoto prime characterized by its flattering focal length and bright f/1.8 design. The maximum aperture strikes a balance between size, weight, and speed, offering suitable speed for working in difficult lighting yet remaining sleek enough for handheld use. In terms of optics, two extra-low dispersion elements are featured, and help to reduce color fringing and chromatic aberrations in order to achieve high clarity and color fidelity. Also, both Nano Crystal and Super Integrated Coatings are used to suppress flare and ghosting for greater color fidelity and higher contrast.

Complementing the optical design, a multi-focus system, which employs two stepping motors, helps to realize impressively fast, accurate, and quiet focus performance, along with full-time manual focus override, to suit both stills and video needs. Additionally, a programmable control ring can be set for intuitive adjustment over a variety of camera and exposure settings.

Prime portrait-length lens is designed for FX-format Z-mount mirrorless cameras.
Bright f/1.8 maximum aperture suits working in difficult lighting conditions and also offers increased control over depth of field for isolating subjects and working with selective focus.
Two extra-low dispersion elements greatly reduce color fringing and chromatic aberrations in order to produce greater clarity and color rendering.
A Nano Crystal Coat, along with a Super Integrated Coating, has been applied to lens elements to minimize surface and internal reflections for a marked reduction in lens flare and ghosting.
Multi-focus system incorporates two separate AF drive units, which are synchronized, to deliver especially fast and accurate focusing performance. This system uses stepping motors, which offer impressively smooth and quiet autofocus qualities, that are well-suited to both stills and video applications. Full-time manual focus override is also possible and an internal focusing design is used, where only the internal lens groups are moved during focusing, to maintain the overall length of the lens during use and to promote faster focusing speeds.
Programmable Control Ring is, by default, set to adjust manual focus, but can also be used to control aperture or exposure compensation.
Specialized electromagnetic aperture mechanism provides greater exposure control stability that is especially beneficial when working with fast continuous shooting rates.
Dust- and moisture-resistant lens barrel benefits the lens' use in inclement conditions.

Chiaro 67mm 95-UVAT UV Filter

The 67mm 95-UVAT UV Filter is one of Chiaro’s highly-rated protective UV filters with 95% light transmission. It’s useful for photographers of all levels who demand high-quality glass and other essential features for great image fidelity and construction.

To achieve 95% light transmission, Chiaro uses highly-polished optical glass, multi-coating, and additional advanced elements that improve the filter’s light transmission. A hard-anodized aluminum filter ring is designed to screw on and off effortlessly, and it’s thin to prevent vignetting when used with wide-angle lenses.

Image quality is what matters most at Chiaro. The company has tested and combined many features and essentials to achieve superior image quality and the highest light transmission. To help take the confusion out of selecting a filter, Chiaro prominently displays the light transmission levels so you can choose the perfect filter for your lens and photo session.

95% Light Transmission
Protect your lens while maintaining optical quality. By using highly-polished optical glass, Chiaro offers a 95% transmission rate. And the company verifies the ratings with ISO certified lab testing.
Polished Optical Glass
Highly-polished glass is essential to achieve a high level of light transmission. The optical glass in this Chiaro filter is polished for flatness that ensures great optical clarity.
Multi-Coating
Multi-coating enhances light transmission to the demanding level set for all Chiaro filters. It reduces unwanted internal reflections and ghosting that can compromise your images.
UV Protection
The filter blocks UV light and reduces the bluish cast of daylight that can affect color accuracy, especially at higher altitudes.
Hard Anodized Aluminum Construction
The process of hard anodizing toughens and strengthens the aluminum for a lightweight yet durable filter ring.
Slim Design
Measuring only 3.2mm, this filter is slim enough to use on wide-angle lenses without experiencing vignetting.
Top Knurling
Top knurling is designed to offer a firm grip on the filter when you're attaching or removing it.
Secure Attachment
It takes two full turns to mount the filter on your lens. This feature will securely hold your Chiaro filter through the most demanding photo shoots.
Front Threads
The front threads on the filter allow you to stack filters by screwing them onto your Chiaro filter.

To use the Nikon NIKKOR Z 85mm f/1.8 S Lens with a follow focus system you will need to attach a gear to the lens barrel. Or use a gearless follow focus.

Two reviews have described a pronounced focus shift with this lens and they said to stop down before focusing to correct for this. Doesn't this limit the ability to focus this lens in low light? How do you do get around this problem?
Asked by: Russell
The Nikon Z bodies focus at the chosen aperture if you are shooting between wide open and f5.6. But when stopped down further than f5.6 (say f16 for example), they focus at f5.6 first, then take the picture at f16. That minimizes focus shift as compared to focusing at wider apertures.

Anyone uses this lens in an indoor basketball situation? Is it fast in tracking with Z7?
Asked by: Harry
If you are under the basket, you might find an 85mm to be "too close." I've used my 70-200 and 50 prime while under the basket, but not my 85. With my 70-200, I've always felt 70 was not quite wide enough when I'm positioned under the basket, so I tend to prefer the 50 if I want most of my shots to be of action right at the basket.

When is this lens expected to be released?
Asked by: John
As of the time/date of this reply, we do not have an estimated arrival date from Nikon for the arrival of the the Nikon NIKKOR Z 85mm f/1.8 S Lens. The best I can state is if you are sure you want to purchase the lens, I would go ahead and pre-order the lens, as all pre-orders will be shipped in the order in which they are received, and all pre-orders will be shipped before the lens will be listed as "In Stock" on our website or in our NYC Superstore. If you are not purchasing at this time, but simply prefer to be notified when the lens is in stock and available for purchase, you may click the white "Notify When In Stock" button on our website and enter your e-mail address, and we will e-mail you once the lens is in stock and available for purchase.
