Nikon Z 85mm f/1.2 S Review
Sharpness at 85mm
For this test, the Nikon Z 85mm f/1.2 S lens was attached to a Nikon Zf body, which was in turn mounted to a sturdy tripod. Exposure delay mode was activated. Tonal and colour variance across the crops are due to change in natural light during the session.
The full frame at 85mm
At the widest aperture of f/1.2, centre sharpness is good, but rises to excellent from f/1.4, and being the absolute sharpest between f/2 and f/8. Sharpness drops off ever so slightly at f/11, before showing the softest results - which are still very good - at f/16.
The overall impression of sharpness is great throughout the aperture range. At the edge of the frame, sharpness is best between f/2.8 and f/11.
