Nikon NIKKOR Z 135mm f/1.8 S Plena

A lens worthy of your passion

Nikon takes S-Line optical excellence to new heights with the NIKKOR Z 135mm f/1.8 S Plena. Stills to movies, this premium full-frame medium-telephoto lens delivers the ultimate in flawless bokeh. From fine-art photography to portraiture, high fashion, nature, and more, discerning photographers can create images of incredible depth and artistry.

The very character of Plena is all-round optical perfection. The wide Nikon Z mount has opened new possibilities for lens design, and Plena takes advantage of them all to deliver truly circular bokeh even in the furthest corners of the frame. Combined with the compression of the 135mm focal length, subject separation is truly striking. Even when shooting wide open against complex backgrounds or at close range, the finest details can be isolated with crystalline sharpness against the ethereal bokeh.

Plena boasts the highest overall rendering power of any S-Line lens as well as peripheral brightness that surpasses any other S-Line lens at f/1.8. Combined with its 11-blade rounded aperture and complex optical construction, aberrations are thoroughly countered: there’s no need to stop down to avoid vignetting. Even when shooting wide open, point light sources like stars or city lights are sharp, round, and clear, and backlit bokeh is free of sagittal coma and flare.

With its specialised optics and 11-blade rounded aperture, the NIKKOR Z 135mm f/1.8 S Plena is truly one of a kind. Stills or video, it will redefine your notion of what a 135mm f/1.8 lens can do. The complex optical construction comprises 16 lens elements in 14 groups. With the large Z mount allowing for optimum spacing of the elements, and the 11 rounded aperture blades minimising diffraction, aberrations are thoroughly suppressed at any aperture. Advanced optical technologies include the front lens element, which is ground from Nikon’s high-dispersion SR glass that counters hard-to-correct chromatic aberration by specifically targeting shorter wavelengths. And an aspherical lens element corrects sagittal coma and spherical aberrations, while also compensating for the curvature of field. Even wide open at f/1.8, you’ll attain critical sharpness, crisp contrast, superb point light source reproduction—and perfectly round bokeh with no discernible colour fringing.

You don't need to stop this telephoto lens down to achieve the best results. Shoot wide open and you'll still get all the sharpness, detail and brightness - all the way to the edge.

We will buy or part-exchange your cameras, lenses, accessories, spotting scopes and binoculars.

We are able to give you a rough price - however we will need to see your gear to give you a final price.

The market fluctuates rapidly and there are a number of considerations we have to make when purchasing equipment from our customers. Our prices undoubtedly are less than you would get if you were to sell privately. The reason for this is, when we sell them to a customer we have to provide a warranty - and with growing costs for repairs this has to be a key consideration.

We’ll always offer as fair a deal as possible and are happy to negotiate or in some instances offer a commission sales basis.

To enquire about selling or part exchanging any items, please complete our online form and ensure you select 'Selling / Part Exchange' within the enquiry type dropdown.

Many thanks, Justin
