To celebrate the production of 100 million lenses, Nikon has announced the AF-S NIKKOR 105mm f/1.4E ED, currently the fastest 105mm full-frame lens at a large F1.4 aperture. This is a premium lens with 14 elements in 9 groups, including 3 ED elements, and Nano Crystal coating to produce high-quality images. It is sealed and gasketed to resist dust and moisture, and Fluorine coatings protect both the front and rear elements, so that smudges, dirt or moisture are easily removed. This medium-telephoto lens has 9 rounded aperture blades which, together with the large aperture, produces smooth bokeh and makes it ideal for shooting portraits.
Availability in Canada is August 25 for a Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) of CAD $2,799.953 (US $2,199.95).
