Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 105mm f/1.4E ED Overview

Entering a new realm within the short telephoto lens market, the AF-S NIKKOR 105mm f/1.4E ED Lens from Nikon is an incredibly bright portrait-length lens designed for FX-format F-mount DSLRs. The f/1.4 maximum aperture benefits working in low-light conditions and also affords extensive control over focus for shallow depth of field imagery. Maintaining clarity and sharpness throughout the aperture range, the optical design utilizes extra-low dispersion glass to minimize chromatic aberrations and color fringing, and a Nano Crystal Coat has been applied to reduce flare and ghosting in strong lighting. Availing a range of unique possibilities for a telephoto lens, the combination of the 105mm focal length and fast maximum aperture greatly benefit portrait photographers as well as event shooters.

Balancing the optical attributes, the lens is also characterized by a Silent Wave Motor that produces fast, smooth, and quiet autofocus capabilities, along with the ability to manually override focus at any time for more selective control. An electromagnetic diaphragm is also featured for greater exposure control stability that is especially beneficial when working with faster continuous shooting rates.

Short telephoto prime lens is designed for FX-format Nikon F-mount cameras, however can also be used on DX models where it provides a 157.5mm equivalent focal length.
Awesomely fast f/1.4 maximum aperture enables precise control over depth of field when working with selective focus techniques, and also benefits working in low-light conditions.
Three extra-low dispersion glass elements are used in the optical construction to reduce a variety of chromatic aberrations for a high degree of clarity and color neutrality.
A Nano Crystal Coat has been applied to lens elements to minimize surface and internal reflections for a marked reduction in lens flare and ghosting.
Fluorine coating on exposed elements affords protection to the optical system.
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.
Specialized electromagnetic aperture mechanism provides greater exposure control stability that is especially beneficial when working with fast continuous shooting rates.

This mechanism limits the compatibility of this lens to the following cameras: D5, D4, D3 series, Df, D850, D810, D810A, D800/E, D750, D700, D610, D600, D500, D300/S, D7500, D7200, D7100, D7000, D5600, D5500, D5300, D5200, D5100, D5000, D3400, D3300, D3200, D3100, Nikon Z7/Z6 with FTZ, Nikon 1 J1, J2, J3, J4 with FT-1, Nikon 1 V1, V2, V3 with FT-1, and Nikon 1 S1, S2 with FT-1.

Does that lens fully work (all apertures) with a SLR Nikon F6?
Asked by: Mathieu
Unfortunately, as the Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 105mm f/1.4E ED Lens uses a new electromagnetic aperture design, you would not be able to adjust the aperture of the lens when connected to the older Nikon F6 35mm Film SLR Camera. The Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 105mm f/1.4E ED Lens' aperture can only be controlled when used on the following cameras: D5, D4 series, D3 series, Df, D850, D810, D810A, D800 series, D750, D700, D610, D600, D500, D300 series, D7500, D7200, D7100, D7000, D5600, D5500, D5300, D5200, D5100, D5000, D3400, D3300, D3200, D3100, Nikon 1 J1, J2, J3, J4, J5 with FT-1, Nikon 1 V1, V2, V3 with FT-1, Nikon 1 S1, S2 with FT-1.

I have read the specs on this and it is not clear what cameras are not compatible with the electromagnetic component. Is a D780 compatible to this lens?
Asked by: Pam
I can't specifically speak to the D780. It works well on my D750, Df and worked on my D3s. It should be fine on the D780, since the camera came out after the lens.

I have read the compatibility of the lens to the various cameras and the list of cameras that are not compatible to the electromagnetic mechanism is nearly all of the cameras Nikon makes, so is it compatible with a Nikon D780? That isn't even listed!
Asked by: Pam
Definitely YES! Even with the D750 too! Hope that helps. Noel

question

How does the Sigma 105mm f/1.4 ART compare to the Nikon 105mm f1.4? Im looking to purchase for portraits on a Nikon D3 & D850.
Asked by: Tyrone
I am in the process of evaluating and I decided on Nikon for several reasons: 1.size and weight are much less than sigma 105. 2. 82mm filter means I can buy an inexpensive adaptor and use the 95mm ND and polarizing filters I already own. 105mm filters are expensive. 3. Two of the web reviews noted many more out of focus pictures with sigma when the subject was moving toward camera. One had woman walk toward both lenses and found big difference. 4.Although Nikon isn't quite as sharp as the sigma, it is described as more sharp than my 85mm 1.4 Nikon which should be fine.

Beautifully. I've used my 105 f1.4 with my Z7 and an adapter extensively for professional portraits and personal use, and I've been really impressed with the level of detail captured.
