In addition, NIKKOR Z lenses are proactively designed with consideration for video recording, including focus breathing compensation, quiet design and high-quality operation, which expand the possibilities of video shooting still further. What’s more, the NIKKOR Z 135mm f/1.8 S Plena is an S-Line*2 lens, and takes full advantage of the Z mount system’s large-diameter mount that unlocks further possibilities for lens design, as well as the potential for large and consistent distribution of light. This realizes beautiful, well-rounded bokeh throughout the entire frame even at maximum aperture, and outstanding sharpness and clarity regardless of the shooting distance — resulting in the fantastic expression of delicate textures and beautiful bokeh in both portraits and landscapes. Stay tuned for further expansion of the NIKKOR Z lineup and its ever-growing expressive possibilities.
