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.
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.
