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

Entering a new realm within the short telephoto lens market, the Nikon AF-S 105mm f/1.4E ED Lens is an incredibly bright portrait-length lens designed for FX-format F-mount DSLRs. Crafted to inspire new levels of artistry in portraiture, this is an exceptional lens with a unique character.

This distinctive portrait lens builds upon a legacy of excellence that stretches all the way back to the renowned NIKKOR 105mm f/2.5. Designed to perfectly capture every nuance, the all-new optical construction ensures outstanding edge-to-edge sharpness, contrast, and resolution. Bokeh is exquisitely smooth, and subjects are sharply rendered even when shooting at the widest aperture of f/1.4. Whether you’re working with available light or in the studio, images boast a depth and dimension that are truly memorable.

F/1.4 maximum aperture and 105 mm 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.

Exquisite 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.

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.
