Nikon launches AF-S NIKKOR 105mm f/1.4E ED, world's first 105mm autofocus lens with f/1.4 aperture. Nikon Corporation today announced the launch of the AF-S NIKKOR 105mm f/1.4E ED, a fast, mid-telephoto fixed focal length (prime) lens that is compatible with Nikon FX-format digital SLR cameras. The AF-S NIKKOR 105mm f/1.4E ED is a worthy successor to Nikon's famed NIKKOR 105mm f/2.5 lens. As the only 105 mm autofocus lens on the market with an f/1.4 maximum aperture, this is an exciting addition to the NIKKOR range.

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. The 105mm and f/1.4 specifications achieve a shallow depth of field and large bokeh, enabling photographic expression that makes the most of the impressive cropping of a scene and optimal compression effects. Beyond the gorgeous image quality lies stellar resolving power, especially when used with Nikon DSLRs such as D5, D810 or D750.

This lens was developed based on the design concept that is, "three-dimensional high fidelity". Thus, it is capable of more natural 3D reproduction of three-dimensional subjects on the two-dimensional fields that are photos, as well as large and beautiful bokeh characteristics, that provide smooth alteration of bokeh as the distance from the focus position increases. These characteristics enable rendering with a natural sense of depth in portraits and images of still objects.

On the other hand, landscapes are reproduced with superior resolution all the way to the edges of the frame, even at maximum aperture, for extremely sharp and clear rendering. Superior point image reproduction capabilities ensure rendering of points and sharp points for very little distortion or bleed with the pinpoint light sources in night landscapes. Night landscapes are sharply reproduced.

In addition, three ED lens elements that provide compensation for chromatic aberration have been adopted, Nano Crystal Coat is utilized for effective reduction of ghost and flare, the lens is equipped with an electromagnetic aperture mechanism that enables stable exposure control, even with high-speed continuous shooting, and highly durable fluorine coat, which effectively repels dust, water, grease, and dirt, has been adopted.

The bright viewfinder image of this fast fixed focal length (prime) lens is advantageous not only because it reduces stress for more comfortable shooting, but also it enables hand-held capture of dimly lit scenes.

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.

Features
+ A lens that utilizes Nikon's latest exclusive optical design to offer a focal length of 105mm, a maximum aperture of f/1.4, and to be equipped with AF capabilities as well
+ The "three-dimensional high fidelity" NIKKOR lens design concept enables rending of the large and beautiful bokeh with gradual transition from the focus position increases and a natural sense of depth
+ Superior optical performance with high resolution even in the peripheral areas, sharp rendering of distant subjects even at maximum aperture, and high reproduction capability of point light sources
+ Adoption of ED lens elements that compensates for chromatic aberration, and Nano Crystal Coat, which effectively reduces ghost and flare
+ Equipped with an electromagnetic aperture mechanism that enables stable exposure control, even with high-speed continuous shooting
+ Highly durable fluorine coat that effectively repels dust, water, grease, and dirt applied to the outer surfaces of the two lens elements at either end (front and rear) of the lens

Pricing & Availability
The AF-S NIKKOR 105mm f/1.4E ED will be available in late August for a suggested retail price (SRP) of $2,199.
