Every detail in greater detail
Subjects are sharply rendered even when shooting at the widest aperture of f/1.4. High-contrast images of distant subjects or low-light scenes can be obtained without needing to stop down the aperture. A minimum focus distance of just 0.28 m offers additional versatility.
Outstanding optical performance
Two ED glass elements and three aspherical lens elements ensure crisp, brilliant images. Distortion is exceptionally well controlled, and axial chromatic aberration and colour dispersion are effectively minimised. Nikon’s Nano Crystal Coat reduces ghosting and flare for greater image clarity, even in backlit situations, or when shooting scenes with numerous direct light sources in the frame.
Images with depth
The optical construction of this lens ensures exceptional aesthetic control. Point light sources are reproduced with minimal flare, even when shooting at the widest aperture of f/1.4. The intensity of bokeh transitions smoothly as the distance from the sharply focused point increases, resulting in no rough edges or double lining.
True AF precision
Ultra-fast, ultra-quiet autofocus performance. Smooth and precise manual focusing. Nikon’s Silent Wave Motor (SWM) enables ultra-fast, ultra-quiet autofocus performance with seamless manual override. The lens boasts a dedicated focus ring for precise manual focusing.
Sturdy and durable
The weather-resistant design prevents dust and water droplets from damaging the lens. Nikon’s fluorine coating actively repels water, dust, and dirt without compromising image quality. And the compact and lightweight build ensures stress-free portability.
