Nikon 58mm f/1.4 overview

  • 1Description

The AF-S NIKKOR 58mm f/1.4G Lens from Nikon is a fast prime lens designed to excel at its bright f/1.4 maximum aperture. Through the use of two aspherical elements, a Nano Crystal Coating, and Nikon's Super Integrated Coating this lens has virtually no coma flaring or light falloff. This allows it to be used in low-light situations by maintaining edge-to-edge sharpness and balanced lighting at all apertures.

The 58mm lens features an aperture range from f/1.4 to f/16 and a rounded 9-blade diaphragm for producing pleasing out-of-focus elements, or bokeh. It also features a Silent Wave Motor for quick, near-silent autofocusing and Manual/Auto mode for fast switching between auto and manual focus. Additionally, this lens has a 1.9' minimum focusing distance and a 72mm filter thread.

It uses Nikon's F mount for compatibility across Nikon's entire range of FX and DX-format DSLR cameras. Also, when used with DX-format cameras it provides a 35mm equivalent focal length of 87mm, ideal for portraits.

Fast f/1.4 maximum aperture allows for shallow depth of field and excellent low-light performance
The 58mm focal length offers a blend between a standard lens and a medium telephoto, offering a natural perspective with a slight exaggeration of depth of field
Optical design includes 9 elements in 6 groups, including two aspherical lens elements which assist in the correction of distortion and coma flaring
The Silent Wave Motor provides fast and quiet autofocus the M/A mode permits fast switching between autofocus to manual operation
Nano Crystal Coating helps to eliminate internal lens element reflections
Super Integrated Coating delivers accurate colors to your camera by minimizing flaring and ghosting

    Nikon 58mm f/1.4 reviews

    AF-S NIKKOR 58mm f/1.4G Lens is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 53.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Look no further for wedding photography I purchased this lens for wedding photography. I must say I had the urge to sell it a few times but I'm glad I didn't. The more I used this lens at weddings, the more I loved it. This lens takes time getting used to. You must have a professional body to have the best AF system, IMHO. The images that come out of this lens are AMAZING! The oval-like bokeh and 3D rendering is just phenomenal. However, if you're in a market for only ONE portrait lens, get the 85mm f/1.4G at this price. Or better yet, save money and get the best value for the money lens- the 85mm f/1.8G. The reason why I don't own an 85mm is because I also own a 70-200VRII which complements my 58mm f/1.4G better than the 85mm f/1.4G would. Overall- awesome lens!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best 50 this side of the otus 50mm is a focal length that I use a lot along with the 85mm on FX. I have tried most mainstream 50s from nikon including the 1.8g. 1.4g and the sigma 50 1.4. This lens beats all of them in wide open sharpness and contrast. Color rendition is very pleasing. IF to OOF transition is the best among the mentioned lenses. My copy is very good in locking focus in low light situations. Folks who have inconsitent focus should send the lens back for replacement as this lens is better than both nikon 50s and sigma in acquiring and keeping focus. I only wish this was cheaper as 1700 is steep. At around 1000 this would have been a no brainer.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The 58/1.4g is Great But Not For All It is important you understand what this lens is all about or you may be disappointed. This lens was designed for gorgeous rendering and bokeh and it delivers. Designed for low light and nightscapes and it delivers. Designed for beautiful transition between sharp and blurry and it delivers. Not designed for razor sharpness wide open (but very sharp when stopped down) or that clinical look of modern digital lenses. You can save money and buy the 50 1.8g or 1.4g or spend more money and buy the Otus ($$) or buy the 58 and get a great lens that delivers a unique look.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great lens but... This is a great lens. Its well built, produces great focus transition, renders colors well and creates images with character. The 58mm is a pleasing perspective. However when paired with my D810 it does not produce clinically sharp images on a pixel level. I give this lens 4 stars because it didn't suit my needs, and I expect a $ lens to be able to produce these type of images with more sharpness. I'm sure that when paired with a lower megapixel body it may perform better. In comparison, the Nikon 50mm f/1.4G performs better on sharpness, and it's about 1/3 of the price of the 58. If you shoot with anything other than D8xx bodies, and have deep pockets, definitely give this lens a try. It performs similarly to a Fujifilm X-T1 paired with the 35mm f/1.4.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just as good as the other 1.4's If you are thinking about buying this len, I'm sure you've been reading a ton of reviews. I know I did. Many reviews I read mentioned that this lens is not as sharp as the 85mm 1.4. With this knowledge I struggled to make the purchase. But I'm glad I did buy it. It's just as good as the other Nikon 1.4's. Before this Lens, I had 2 other lenses, Nikon 35mm 1.4 and 85mm 1.4. My subjects are mostly people and getting the eyes sharp is my top priority. Even more important is getting the eyes sharp while the lens is wide open because I am a bokeh freak. To me this lens is just as sharp as my other 2 1.4's wide open and the bokeh is just as fantastic. Go check out flicker and look for photos shot with the Nikon 58mm 1.4 and judge for yourself. By the way, the lens is noticeably lighter than the 35 and 85mm 1.4's. This is a huge plus for me.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Professional Photographer Okay, I really did quite of bit of studying on this lens, read about what seemed to be a hundred reviews, you tube videos. Spoke to fellow photographers, and finally after about 3 weeks took the plunge. I bought this lens for special photography, specially people portraits, for indoor and outdoor. Bokeh on my copy is completely equal to my Nikons 24, 35, 85, and now 58 1.4s, creamy buttery backgrounds, with that 3D look. First thing I did out of the box was fine tune it with my Nikon D4S, as I do with all my primes, mine needed a +18 fine tune, which is not unusual, my other primes are between +10 and +18. It is very sharp now, not the snappiest focus, but that's okay, the photographs this lens puts out between 1.4 and 2.8 are fabulous, doubt I will ever shoot it any narrower, to me, that's why I buy expensive primes, to shoot them wide open, or very close to it. I think this lens will be seeing it's share of time on my camera, and hopefully make me $$$$. If you're an experienced photographer, YES, I would recommend !

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from special kind of lens I sold my 85 1.4 for this lens thats how bad I wanted it. Indeed its a special kind of lens . Wide open 1.4 is a little soft but the shot you get with it you cant achieve with any other lens . Believe me you i coupled it with my nikon df . Its a great couple . I have now a camera to remember . The lens is light weight and is my go to lens for portrait .perfect . For street just right . For landscape not bad . The perfect lens in my opinion . As I said special

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Updated Review I have had the chance to run the 58mm f/1.4g through a few tests. With a little adjustment this lens produces some excellent images. Bottom line: Impressive lens. It is a Nikon prime lens like the 24, 35, or 85 and as a prime it does not focus as fast or as accurately at 1.4 as one of the Nikon 2.8 zooms do at f 8. See my previous article on the prime focusing speed. Advice(please read below): For portraits, using eyes as the focus point, I shoot it at AF Fine tune +20, saving RAW+JPG , with the JPG set at maximum sharpness on the D4 and have the center button on the multi-selector set to zoom medium on press during image review so that I can check the focus on the shot. Please check out my site for the full review and advice.
