Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 105mm f/1.4E ED Lens

The Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 105mm f/1.4E ED FX Lens is entering a new era within the short telephoto lens market, an incredibly brilliant portrait-length lens engineered for FX-format F-mount DSLRs. The f/1.4 maximum aperture is an advantage working in low-light situations and also provides extensive control over focusing for shallow depth of field images. Maintaining clarity and sharpness all through the aperture range, the optical layout utilizes extra-low dispersion glass to diminish chromatic aberrations and color fringing, plus a Nano Crystal Coat has been applied to diminish flare and ghosting in bright lighting. Adding an array of unique possibilities for a telephoto lens, the 105mm focal length combined with a fast maximum aperture is a significant advantage for portrait photographers as well as event shooters.

Balancing the optical attributes, the lens is also benefited by a Silent Wave Motor that delivers fast, smooth, and quiet autofocus, along with a manual override focus at any time for more precise control. An electromagnetic diaphragm is also integrated for enhanced exposure control stability that is particularly beneficial when working with faster continuous shooting speeds.

This brilliant short telephoto prime lens is engineered for FX-format Nikon F-mount DSLRs but may also be mounted on DX models, where it delivers a 157.5mm equivalent focal length.

Astonishingly fast f/1.4 maximum aperture facilitates precise control over depth of field when shooting with selective focus techniques, and is also an advantage working in low-light situations.

Three extra-low dispersion glass elements are included in the optical construction to diminish a variety of chromatic aberrations for a high amplitude of clarity and neutral colors.

A Nano Crystal Coat has been utilized on the lens elements to diminish surface and internal reflections for a considerable reduction in flare and ghosting.

Fluorine coating added to exposed elements provides protection to the optical system.

Silent Wave Motor AF mechanism provides quick, quiet, and exact autofocus operation that is perfect for shooting fast-moving subjects.

Full-time manual focus override delivers instant switching between AF and MF focusing by simply rotating the focus ring any time.

Internal focusing maintains the overall lens length during shooting and is a contribution to a lighter overall weight, as well providing as a minimum focusing distance of just 3.3'.

Specialized electromagnetic aperture device provides enhanced exposure control stability that is particularly beneficial when photographing using fast continuous shooting speeds.

Rounded nine-blade diaphragm adds to a pleasing bokeh quality.
