Nikon has announced the development of the Nikkor Z 85mm f/1.2 S, a fast mid-telephoto prime lens that’s ideally suited to portrait photography, and the Nikkor Z 26mm f/2.8, a slim wide-angle prime lens.

Both lenses are full-frame (FX-format) optics and have the Nikon Z mount for use on Nikon’s Z-series mirrorless cameras.

As one of the S-line optics, the Nikkor Z 85mm f/1.2 S is designed to offer optimum performance and large, attractive bokeh. It’s aimed at wedding, portrait and fashion photographers.

Meanwhile, the Nikkor Z 26mm f/2.8 is very slim and light, but is also said to deliver high image quality. It’s aimed at enthusiast photographers who want to carry their camera everywhere.

The lenses are on display on Nikon’s booth at the annual Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas from January 5-8, 2023.
