85mm f/1.8

 

Meike has launched a new 85mm f/1.8 full-frame autofocus prime lens for Nikon F-mount cameras that's priced at just under $190. 

The standard 85mm full-frame lens can be used for a variety of subjects, particularly portraits as the wide f/1.8 aperture and 9 diaphragm blades are designed to produce super smooth rounded bokeh. Meike also says the 85mm lens offers excellent sharpness, low CA and low distortion. 

The lens features 9 elements in 6 groups and features a micro USB firmware upgrade interface so upgrades can be applied for free when released online. 

The 85mm f/1.8 lens is Meike's first autofocus lens and even though it's designed to be used with full-frame Nikon cameras, it can also be used on APS-C bodies when paired with an adapter (not included). 

Specification:

  • Aperture Range: f/1.8 - f/22
  • Lens Construction: 6 Groups 9 Elements
  • Filter Thread Size: 67mm
  • Angle of View: 28.5-degrees
  • Minimum Focus Distance: 0.85m
  • Size: 79 * 75 mm
  • Weight: 420g
