This is my new baby. It is by far my favorite lens if I am photographing a singular person. The bokeh is phenomenal with that wide aperture. The lens itself is small enough and light enough to take on those fast photoshoots when you're running around downtown and have to move out of the street quick. I love it! Another great tool to keep in your camera bag!
I picked up this lens after reading how highly reviewed it was. I was previously using the 85mm 1.8 g (f-mount) version. The results were great, so I was skeptical as to how it could improve much.
I am blown away by the level of sharpness the 1.8s renders. This is an incredible lens.
I absolutely love this lens. Coupled with the Z7, it is magical!
I love 85mm for its background compression. I have owned the AFS 85mm f/1.4E for years and loved it, but, I sold it a week after shooting with the Z 85mm f/1.8 S! I was doing a shoot for a family at their home and was switching between the two 85's. When I got the pictures in the computer for editing I was amazed. Shocked, honestly, at the color rendition of the Z 85, its clarity, acuity, bokeh, and sharpness. it was visibly better than the f/1.4. I love the 85 1.4 (and still have the 105mm f/1.4E) but one session with the Z 85 and I was genuinely converted with no regrets. Plus, this little 85 is small enough to do street photography, travel, just about anything and still be fairly inconspicuous.
Amazing lens. It balances well on the Z bodies; it´s fast, quiet, and super sharp. You can maintain a low profile and still get superior images. Most 1.4 lenses call attention to themselves, this lens may not be attention-grabbing, but the images are.
This is my first 85mm prime lens. I have the 35 and the 50 F1.8 Z mount lenses. I also have the 50mm F1.8 and 105mm F2.8 F mount lenses. I really like the rich colors and bokeh that I get with this lens. Images are sharp. Works well in low light with my Z7. I am pleased with this purchase.
Attached are two images. The Original is too big to upload here. Good detail retained from Original to medium to small crops sizes.
I love this lens. It is a wonderful lens even wide open. The bokeh is wonderful. The lens is quick to focus and that focus is silent or nearly so. I have used the F mount 85 1.8 and 1.4 both and I prefer the S lens results.
Extremely sharp, great bokeh, overall beautiful rendering. AF very quiet, faster than 1.8g counterpart.
So far so great. The lens produces nice sharp colorful images but my favorite thing about it is how light weight it is.
