Nikon has announced the Nikkor Z 85mm f/1.8, price tag £799/$796, with a release date set for September 2019.

The new Nikon Z lens is a classic portrait lens designed for head-and-shoulder shots and environmental portraits.

The Nikkor Z 85mm f/1.8 is compatible with the Nikon Z cameras’ new Eye-Detection feature and also promises silent AF and aperture adjustment for filmmaking.

On the lens barrel of the Nikkor Z 85mm f/1.8 S is a control ring that is customisable and can be used for manual focusing, aperture control or exposure compensation.

Minimum focus distance is just 0.80m, and an anti-reflective Nano Crystal Coat helps prevent flare and ghosting.

Nikon says the lens barrel is also sealed to protect from dust and water.

You can pre-order the Nikon Z 85mm f/1.8 S at Adorama and B&H Photo Video in the US, or at Wex Photo Video in the UK.
