Announcing New Nikon 105mm f/1.4 Lens

Nikon has announced the world’s first full-frame 105mm f/1.4 ED lens. This short telephoto lens is geared towards portraiture or indoor sports. This interchangeable lens is also ideal for videos. Some sample images below showcase the fantastic bokeh this lens produces. 

An excellent performer for available light, the AF-S NIKKOR 105mm f/1.4E ED also excels when using Nikon Speedlights—indoors or out. Create beautiful portraits with minimal depth of field as well as using Advanced Wireless Lighting with Auto FP High-Speed Sync. Its f/1.4 maximum aperture and nine-blade diaphragm produce a superior bokeh effect with large, smooth spheres with gradual alteration. The focal length (105mm on FX cameras, 158mm on DX cameras) creates an ideal working distance that’s close enough to interact with the subject.

We are now accepting pre-orders for this lens, please stop by or call Camera West Walnut Creek at 925-935-1424 or Rancho Mirage at 760-992-5422.
