Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 58mm f/1.4G Lens

BH #NI5814 • MFR #2210
Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 58mm f/1.4G Lens
Key Features
  • F-Mount Lens/FX Format
  • Aperture Range: f/1.4 to f/16
  • Two Aspherical Lens Elements
  • Nano Crystal & Super Integrated Coatings
Inspired by the famous Noct NIKKOR, the AF-S NIKKOR 58mm f/1.4G from Nikon is a unique prime that pairs the distinct slightly long focal length with a fast maximum aperture. The bright f/1.4 design enables working in difficult lighting conditions and also permits working with shallow depth of field and selective focus techniques. In regard to the optics, a pair of aspherical elements are used to reduce distortion, spherical aberrations, and comatic aberrations to realize sharp, clear image quality throughout the aperture range. Both Nano Crystal and Super Integrated Coatings have also been applied to control flare and ghosting for improved contrast and color rendering. Additionally, a Silent Wave Motor provides fast, accurate, and quiet autofocus performance along with full-time manual focus override.

Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 58mm f/1.4G Overview

Inspired by the famous Noct NIKKOR, the AF-S NIKKOR 58mm f/1.4G from Nikon is a unique prime that pairs the distinct slightly long focal length with a fast maximum aperture. The bright f/1.4 design enables working in difficult lighting conditions and also permits working with shallow depth of field and selective focus techniques. In regard to the optics, a pair of aspherical elements are used to reduce distortion, spherical aberrations, and comatic aberrations to realize sharp, clear image quality throughout the aperture range. Both Nano Crystal and Super Integrated Coatings have also been applied to control flare and ghosting for improved contrast and color rendering. Additionally, a Silent Wave Motor provides fast, accurate, and quiet autofocus performance along with full-time manual focus override.

Slightly longer-than-normal prime is designed for FX-format Nikon F-mount cameras, however is also compatible with DX models where it provides an 87mm equivalent focal length.
Impressively fast f/1.4 maximum aperture excels in low-light conditions and also enables greater control over depth of field for isolating subjects and working with selective focus techniques.
Two aspherical elements are used to greatly reduce spherical aberrations and distortion in order to achieve high sharpness, clarity, and accurate rendering. Additionally, the optical design has also been optimized for shooting at wider apertures, including f/1.4, and minimizes comatic aberrations and ensures even sharpness across the frame.
Nano Crystal and Super Integrated Coatings have been applied to lens elements to minimize surface and internal reflections for a marked reduction in lens flare and ghosting.
Silent Wave Motor affords quick, quiet, and precise autofocus performance along with full-time manual focus override. An internal focusing design is also used, where only the internal lens groups are moved during focusing, to maintain the overall length of the lens during use and to promote faster focusing speeds.
Rounded nine-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing bokeh quality.

question

I read somewhere that this lens was made for a crop sensor; my question is....are there any reviews of this lens on a crop sensor? I have the Nikon D7000 and am trying to find a sharp lens with great bokeh for portraits, and similar to the 85mm on a full frame. Any suggestions and comments would be greatly appreciated.
Asked by: Anonymous
This lens is an FX type lens, which means it is originally designed to be used on both Full-frame and crop-sensor cameras. I do not have any links to cite for you showing examples of it used on the D7000, but it is a very sharp lens with great shallow depth of field for your portrait work. It is one I would definitely recommend for your D7000 if you want something in the 85mm range. This lens is based on an original design of an early Nikon 58mm lens, and they improved upon it for use on DSLRs of both formats.

Is this lens adaptable without electrical contacts, i.e. is it manually focusable and is there an aperture lever on the mount?
Asked by: Baron
Yes. I've used it on a Black Magic Pocket Cinema Camera 4k with the Metabones Speedbooster. You need an adapter that has an aperture ring on it (search for Nikon G adapter). It looked good for video and its a great lens but IMHO, if you're not using the AF, there are other, cheaper options that can get you great results.

question

I read about fine tuning this lens by one reviewer, but how is that done?
Asked by: Dan
I don't own this lens, but all Nikon lenses can be fine tuned using the camera menu and focusing on a printed scale at an angle to the single focal point. I use a bar code label. You need to be careful to check it at both near and distance. Most lenses do not need much/any change but my 35 1.4 G needs a +3 on several different bodies.
