The Zeiss Milvus ZF.2 85mm f/1.4 for Nikon

The Zeiss Milvus ZF.2 85mm f/1.4 is a professional-caliber, fast-aperture prime lens designed for Nikon F-mount cameras. It’s an update to the popular Zeiss ZF.2 85mm f/1.4 for Nikon. Key features include:

Fast Aperture/Portrait. The 85mm focal length offers a slight tele lens perfect for portraits and still life work. The f/1.4 aperture provides stellar low-light performance with incredibly shallow depth of field. On APS-C models, the Zeiss Milvus ZF.2 85mm f/1.4 for Nikon will provide a 127.5mm-equivalent focal length.

Advanced Optics. Don’t be mistaken; this is an entirely different optical formula from the old ZE 85mm f/1.4 Planar. It approaches the performance of the Zeiss ZF.2 85mm f/1.4 Otus APO Planar for Nikon. Seven anomalous partial-dispersion glass elements within a floating-elements system combat distortions and aberrations, all while retaining sharpness and clarity at any aperture or focus distance. The enhanced T* anti-reflective coating controls ghosting and flare for a color-neutral image that still flaunts that famous high micro-contrast “Zeiss look.”

High-Quality Build. The ZF.2 85mm Milvus features a weather-resistant construction with internal seals to guard against dust and moisture, while a blue sealing ring at the lens mount protects the lens/camera interface. The all-metal lens barrel has a frosted, anodized surface for increased durability.

Modern Manual Focus. This fully manual-focus lens features a whopping 275° focus throw and a rubberized focus ring for improved tactile control, while still providing electrical communication with the camera to control aperture and communicate EXIF data.

Click On, Click Off. The 85mm Milvus ZF.2 line offers an aperture ring that features 1/2-stop clicks throughout the f/1.4-22 range and the ability to mechanically switch to clickless operation.

If you don't see exactly what you're looking for and that makes you sad, please give us a shout. We might have good news for you. Here's a link to our contact form.

We offer a 3-day inspection period on all sales, during which time you may return the item for a refund of the purchase price, not including shipping.

On this item, we include a LensAuthority 90-day limited warranty. This warranty covers damage that arises from normal use of the item. It does NOT cover accidental or intentional damage. More details are available in our FAQ section.

In addition to the standard 90-day warranty, you may have the option to purchase an extended warranty. If we're able to offer an extended warranty on this item, you'll see a checkbox to add that warranty - see the area just above the "Add to Cart" button.

If you select the extended warranty, you'll get additional protection from Consumer Priority Service ("CPS"). The CPS warranty will take effect after our 90-day warranty ends. However, the CPS warranty term would begin on the date of purchase. For example, if you buy an item with a 2-year extended warranty today, your coverage would end two years from today.
