The AF-S NIKKOR 105mm f/1.4E ED is a fast, full-frame (FX-format), medium-telephoto prime lens and is the world’s first to strike the impeccable balance of 105mm focal length and large f/1.4 aperture for a truly outstanding optic. This new NIKKOR lens is ideal for professional and advanced enthusiast photographers, especially those capturing portraiture, from in-studio fashion to a golden hour engagement session on the beach. These users will love the precise sharpness from this fantastic glass, which provides a flattering compression to subjects with a sensational, sultry bokeh. Beyond the gorgeous image quality lies stellar resolving power, especially when used with Nikon DSLRs such as D5, D810 or D750.

 

The 105mm f/1.4E is a fast lens with endearing character, providing stellar optical performance, even in the peripherals. Sharp rendering is attained for shooting distant subjects throughout the aperture range – from maximum aperture to being stopped down by several stops. Gradual alteration from the focal plane helps render subjects in high-fidelity with a natural depth, giving colorful portraits and landscapes that little bit of extra “pop” to help create a truly distinct image. The AF-S NIKKOR 105mm f/1.4 is also an excellent choice for low-light photography, as its large maximum aperture allows photographers to shoot at the fastest possible shutter speeds. Additionally, this lens can reproduce point light sources faithfully without sagittal coma flare, even on the edges of the frame.

 

Masterful Lens Construction

 

Decades of precision, knowledge and experience are put forth into every NIKKOR lens, and the AF-S NIKKOR 105mm f/1.4E ED is an exceptional example of brilliant craftsmanship and Nikon technologies merging. Packed with the latest advanced optical innovations, the 105mm f/1.4 features Nikon’s electromagnetic aperture control technology for consistent exposures, even during high speed continuous shooting.

 

On the outside, solid build quality is well-balanced for all-day shooting, while the lens is sealed and gasketed to resist dust and moisture. Additional Fluorine coatings are used on the front and rear elements, so that smudges, dirt or moisture are easily removed. Inside the lens, the optical formula consists of 14 elements in nine groups, which include three ED glass elements. A 9-blade diaphragm further helps to create a circular, pleasing out of focus area. The lens also features Nikon’s Nano Crystal Coat technology to significantly reduce instances of ghosting and flare.

 

The new AF-S NIKKOR 105mm f/1.4E ED joins other NIKKOR f/1.4 lenses in the Gold Ring Series, which include only premium primes with Nano Crystal Coat and pro-grade build quality. These other lenses include the AF-S NIKKOR 24mm f/1.4G, AF-S NIKKOR 35mm f/1.4G, AF-S NIKKOR 58mm f/1.4G, AF-S NIKKOR 85mm f/1.4G.

Unique character: f/1.4 maximum aperture and 105mm focal length

This FX-format prime lens will perfectly reflect your personal aesthetic. The 105 mm focal length combines with a shortest focusing distance of 1 m to enable frame-filling head-shots without the need to crop. The unique optical design enables every component of the scene to be faithfully reproduced: even when shooting wide-open, the finest fabrics can be captured in all their beauty. And the rounded 9-blade diaphragm produces stunning bokeh, and enables sensitive depth-of-field control.

Beautiful bokeh: depth and dimension

Thanks to its unique optical construction, this lens offers wonderfully smooth bokeh and can endow subjects with a beautifully natural-looking sense of depth. The intensity of image blur transitions smoothly as the distance from the sharply focused point increases, enabling bokeh with no rough edges. And the fine gradation of bokeh from the focus point to the background renders images with an incredible sense of natural depth. The benefits extend to movies, too: when pulling focus, bokeh transitions incredibly smoothly, providing a unique advantage when it comes to filming atmospheric scenes.

Drawing with light: unbeatable performance when shooting wide-open

The AF-S NIKKOR 105mm f/1.4E ED enables exceptional aesthetic control. Subjects are rendered with perfect clarity even when shooting at the widest aperture of f/1.4. Sagittal coma flare is effectively minimised for superior reproduction of point light sources as fine rounded points, even at the edges of an image. Peripheral light falloff is controlled to retain brightness across the frame, and subjects located at the edge of the frame are sharp and well resolved, even when shooting at maximum aperture with focus set to infinity.

Legendary Nikkor quality

Nine rounded aperture blades decrease diffraction, delivering faithful reproduction of a scene’s elements. AE control is rendered exceptionally stable—even during a high-speed burst—thanks to the incorporation of an electromagnetic aperture control mechanism in the lens barrel. Nano Crystal Coat effectively reduces ghost and flare, and autofocus is smooth, quiet, and swift as a result of Nikon’s SWM (Silent Wave Motor). Three extra-low-dispersion (ED) glass elements minimise axial chromatic aberration. The front and rear lens elements are protected and made easier to clean by Nikon’s fluorine coat, which effectively repels dust, dirt, water, and grease.
