Not content with the recent launch of the retro-styled Nikon Z f camera body, the major brand has unveiled an exciting, unique new lens to go with it: the Nikkor Z 135mm f/1.8 S Plena. With Plena, a brand-new class of lens for Nikon, described as something of a one-off rather than the start of a new family of optics, the company defines the term as meaning ‘plenty or full to the brim’, with light flowing freely across the frame. Claimed by Nikon to provide ‘flawless’ autofocus, the high-end S series lens is, it says, all about delivering beautiful, perfectly round bokeh in all situations. The combination of the largest mount diameter and the shortest flange focal distance minimises vignetting, while redefining what can be done with f/1.8. Featuring extensive sealing and fluorine coating, the lens weighs 995g and features dimensions of 98x139.5mm. The optic should already be available at a suggested £2699 in the coming weeks. Nikon Plena optic’s appeal is plain to see
