Nikon launch the impressive 58mm f/1.4

Nikon have launched a new fast prime lens, designed to deliver the ultimate in image quality and really showcases what Nikon can do with their lens manufacture.

The AF-S NIKKOR 58mm f/1.4G is a lens that makes the most of advanced optical design technologies long cultivated by Nikon to achieve high reproduction capability of point light sources even at the maximum aperture, and natural depth of subjects utilising smooth and beautiful bokeh characteristics.

With shooting of distant night landscapes, the lens minimises the sagittal coma flare that makes a point light source look like a bird with its wings spread to render point light sources as sharp points with no distortion or fringes across the entire frame, even at maximum aperture, for clear and crisp night landscape shots.

What’s more, despite being a fast lens, not only is light falloff controlled for natural brightness across the entire frame, even at the maximum aperture of f/1.4, for sharp rendering of objects at infinity, but adoption of Nano Crystal Coat effectively reduces flare and ghost.

It inspires memories of the old Nikon 58mm f/1.2 Noct-NIKKOR from the 70’s as a premium lens when only the very best is good enough.

Coming soon with a RRP of £1599
