BH #NI10514 • MFR #20064
Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 105mm f/1.4E ED Lens
Key Features
  • F-Mount Lens/FX Format
  • Aperture Range: f/1.4 to f/16
  • Three Extra Low-Dispersion Elements
  • Nano Crystal Coating
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.

How does it work with the Nikon Z7?

How does it work with the Nikon Z7?
Asked by: Jesus
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.

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: Pamela
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.

Asked by: Jenna
The Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 105mm f/1.4E ED Lens is a similar focal length to the Nikon 135mm lens; it doesn't replace it, it's just a different focal length.

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: Pamela
Definitely YES! Even with the D750 too! Hope that helps. Noel

Will this lens work with a teleconverter?
Asked by: Anonymous
The 105mm f/1.4 will work with a Kenco t/c because the Kenco t/cs have a different construction. ( As with all t/cs ), for best results, you need to stop down a bit. At f/2.0, the 105 f/1.4 plus 1.4 Kenco produces nice images.
