The new Nikon NIKKOR Z 85mm f/1.2 S lens is here, and it brings with it the promise of some of the most uncompromising optical performance ever seen from the company. Can it live up to that promise in practice, though? This excellent video review takes a look at the new lens and the sort of performance and image quality you can expect from it in practice.
Coming to you from Matt Irwin Photography, this great video review takes a look at the new Nikon NIKKOR Z 85mm f/1.2 S lens. Wide-aperture 85mm lenses have long been the tool of choice for portrait and wedding photographers, but as mirrorless has taken over, their optical quality has taken a leap forward, particularly at those maximum apertures, with multiple lenses from different manufacturers demonstrating superlative performance. And now, it seems like it is Nikon's turn, with the NIKKOR Z 85mm f/1.2 S turning it very impressive performance, even at f/1.2, which is sure to please bokeh fanatics everywhere. And while the lens is unsurprisingly expensive, its price is in line with similar lenses, such as the Canon RF 85mm f/1.2 L USM. Check out the video above for Irwin's full thoughts on the new lens.
