The Nikon 105mm 1.4E lLens is a fast, full-frame (FX-format), medium-telephoto prime lens and is the first to strike the balance of 105mm focal length and large f/1.4 aperture for gorgeous quality bokeh. This new Nikon lens provides precise sharpness and a flattering compression to subjects with a buttery bokeh.
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 lens is great 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.
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.
The Nikon 105mm 1.4E 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 Nikon 105mm 1.4E lens costs $2,199.95.
