Nikon has released ‘development announcements’ for two up-coming prime lenses: the Nikkor Z 85mm f/1.2 S and Nikkor Z 26mm f/2.8, both designed for full-frame cameras.

The announcements were made at the CES show in Las Vegas. The 85mm f/1.2 S lens has been on Nikon’s lens roadmap for some time and features an 82 mm filter ring, a lens function (L-Fn) button and an extra control ring. Designed primarily for capturing portraits in areas such as weddings and fashion, it promises ‘superior rendering performance and large, and beautiful bokeh’.

The Nikkor Z 26mm f/2.8 lens is targeted at ‘advanced amateur photographers who take their camera everywhere’ and is likely to be most relevant to solo vloggers who use Z50 cameras. This is the only information released so far because these are essentially development announcements. More details are likely to emerge in the lead-in to the CP+ show in late February. Check the local Nikon website for pricing and availability closer to this date.
