As the world’s first1 autofocus lens with a focal length of 105mm and an aperture of f/1.4, the FX-format AF-S NIKKOR 105mm f/1.4E ED brings innovation to advance the boundaries of imaging excellence. Revel in the superior optical performance and high resolution – for dramatically sharp images and rich detail. The 105mm focal length2 and fast f/1.4 maximum aperture ensures evenly lit and high-contrast images even from a distance – making it a versatile performer for indoor portraits, intimate weddings and outdoor nightscapes.

A low-light powerhouse that delivers under any condition

Shoot fast-moving subjects at different distances with smooth and consistent results. With the all-new stepping motor in the AF-S NIKKOR 105mm f/1.4E ED, you can achieve fast and precise autofocus (AF) through improved phase-detection and contrast-detection AF speeds. Also, the ‘drive sound’ of AF has been reduced, enabling photographers and videographers to capture subjects in their most natural moments without drawing unnecessary attention.

A low-light powerhouse that delivers under any condition

Astounding images that are rich in detail

Add a dramatic sense of depth to your compositions, with the AF-S NIKKOR 105mm f/1.4E ED. The ultra-fast portrait lens attains high resolution across the entire frame – including the peripheral areas. Superior optical performance is achieved through NIKKOR’s unique “three-dimensional high-fidelity” design concept, allowing for smooth and beautiful bokeh. The nine-blade rounded diaphragm also creates a smooth and rounded bokeh, while the enhanced depth delivers images that truly stand out.

Unsurpassed durability, unmatches colour balance

Enjoy the freedom to capture sharp and vibrant images – even under harsh and bright-lighting conditions. Engineered with three Extra-low Dispersion glass elements that reduce chromatic aberration to enhance sharpness and contrast – and improved phase-detection and contrast-detection AF speeds – the AF-S NIKKOR 105mm f/1.4E ED resolves portraits, landscapes and night sceneries with unmatched detail. A fluorine coating is applied for extra durability to repel dust, water droplets, grease and dirt for easy maintenance.
