Nikon launches the AF-S NIKKOR 105mm f/1.4E ED and adds another jewel to its lineup of fast FX-format f/1.4 prime lenses. As the only 105 mm autofocus lens on the market with an f/1.4 maximum aperture, this is an exciting addition to the NIKKOR range. Professionals who want to reach new levels of artistry in portraiture and fashion will be able to enjoy exceptional aesthetic control.
The AF-S NIKKOR 105mm f/1.4E ED is a worthy successor to Nikon’s famed NIKKOR 105mm f/2.5 lens. Whether photographers are working with available light or in the studio, the all-new optical construction delivers unrivalled edge-to-edge sharpness and exquisite bokeh. The 105 mm focal length and 1 m shortest focusing distance allow for frame-filling head-shots without the need to crop. Wide-open performance is unbeatable, and subjects are rendered with perfect clarity even when shooting at the widest aperture.
Additional Key Features
Rounded 9-blade diaphragm
Nine rounded aperture blades decrease diffraction, delivering faithful reproduction of a scene’s elements.
Quick, stable, smooth
An electromagnetic aperture mechanism enables exceptionally stable auto-exposure control—even during a high-speed burst. Autofocus is smooth, quiet, and swift as a result of Nikon’s SWM (Silent Wave Motor).
Legendary NIKKOR optics
Nano Crystal Coat reduces ghost and flare. Three extra-low-dispersion (ED) glass elements minimise axial chromatic aberration. Nikon’s fluorine coat protects the front and rear lens elements, and makes them easier to clean.
