Extraordinary FX-format prime lens with large f/1.4 aperture and 58 mm focal length.
Designed to perform best at maximum aperture, this lens pushes the limits of image quality.
Truly in a class of its own, the 58 mm focal length pays homage to Nikon’s legendary Noct-NIKKOR lens, while the brand new optical construction enables astounding sharpness, contrast, and resolution.
An exceptional lens for shooting night scenes, the AF-S NIKKOR 58mm f/1.4G reproduces point light sources like city lights as fine rounded points all the way to the edge of the frame. Bokeh is exquisitely smooth with no rough edges, which makes this a great lens for portraits, too.
Fast FX-format prime lens with f/1.4 maximum aperture and 58 mm focal length (87 mm when used with a Nikon DX-format SLR). Offers exceptional wide-open performance. Ideal for night scenes as well as portraits.
True brilliance: Exceptional resolving capability enables every component of a scene to be faithfully reproduced in exquisite high-resolution. Sagittal coma flare is effectively minimised for superior reproduction of point light sources as fine rounded points, even at the periphery of an image.
Exquisite bokeh: The intensity of bokeh transitions smoothly as the distance from the sharply focused point increases, resulting in no rough edges. Enables high-resolution images with an additional sense of depth.
Wide-open master: Subjects are sharply rendered 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.
Superior edge-to-edge performance: Peripheral light falloff is controlled to retain brightness across the frame. Subjects located at the edge of the frame are sharp and well-resolved, even when shooting at maximum aperture with focus set to infinity.
Renowned NIKKOR quality: Nano Crystal Coat effectively reduces ghost and flare, increasing the clarity and contrast of images. Autofocus is smooth, quiet, and swift, thanks to Nikon’s SWM (Silent Wave Motor).
