Nikon AF-S 105mm f/1.4E ED: Best f/1.4 Lens *Ever* from Nikon, Examples

See my Nikon wish list and other wish lists at B&H Photo.

Nikon AF-S 105mm f/1.4E ED

The Nikon AF-S 105mm f/1.4E is surely the best-corrected f/1.4 lens that Nikon has ever produced, and by no small margin. If Leica produced this lens, everyone would rave about it and pay 3X the price—but it’s a stop faster than anything Leica has in this range.

I think the examples speak for themselves: supreme sharpness, velvety smooth bokeh rivaling the very best lens in its range:

These examples were chosen to challenge the lens. Instead, I was stunned with not just the technical performance, but the jaw-dropping beauty of the images. Image sizes up to 28 megapixels, with crops.

Don’t blame me if your wallet suffers: the about $2195 Nikon AF-S 105mm f/1.4E ED is worth every penny for what it delivers. This is the first Nikon lens in years that I have lusted over.
