The spirit of the Noct-Nikkor lens lives on in the AF-S NIKKOR 58mm f1.4G – the evolution of a legendary lens prized by the world’s top photographers. This precision-crafted aspherical lens delivers outstanding bokeh, supreme low-light performance and unprecedented clarity from edge to edge. Its wide maximum aperture of f/1.4 lets you take brighter shots with rich details. Light falloff, coma flares and lens aberration are minimised. It’s the ultimate lens for professional-quality portraits, landscapes, night scenery and star-filled skies.
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.
Phenomenally accurate rendering of point light sources
The AF-S NIKKOR 58mm f1.4G excels at low-light photography, producing images that will impress the most demanding professionals. Its sophisticated design combined with a unique Nano Crystal Coat reduces ghosting and coma flares. Your night cityscapes will feature incredibly precise points of light and a level of clarity unmatched by other lenses.
Setting new standards for smooth bokeh
This superb lens produces images with beautiful depth and smooth bokeh. Its three-dimensional high fidelity lens improves contrast and resolution at the focal plane while achieving a gradual transition in bokeh. Halos around out-of-focus objects are eliminated for a more natural blur. With its manual focus ring, you can fine-tune the focus to achieve the desired degree of detail without overly sharpening your image.
Outstanding sharpness at infinity
The AF-S NIKKOR 58mm f1.4G delivers amazingly clear reproduction throughout the frame, including peripheral areas. This allows you to shoot gorgeous images at infinity even when using maximum aperture and faster shutter speeds. With its absolute precision and control, the AF-S NIKKOR 58mm f1.4G is perfect for highly detailed landscapes and architecture.
Stunning details to the very edge
The extraordinary craftsmanship of the lens takes full advantage of your camera’s resolution. With minimal lens aberration, minute details at the edge of frame are captured with unparalleled clarity so you never need to crop your images. This remarkable resolving power unleashes the full potential of high-performance DSLRs such as the D800.
Reduced light falloff for brilliant shots at wide aperture
Even at maximum aperture, light falloff at the edge of frame (also known as vignetting) is minimised. This ensures perfect exposure across the image – giving a brighter, more natural impression without the need for software lens correction.
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).
Detachable hood and soft case included.
