Nikon FX 58mm f/1.4G AF-S Standard Lens

Special offer

Never knowingly undersold

Product information

Designed to perform best at maximum aperture, this lens pushes the limits of image quality. The 58mm focal length and 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 all the way to the edge of the frame.

Light control
Exceptional resolving capability enables every component of a scene to be faithfully reproduced in exquisite high-resolution. Flare is effectively minimised for superior reproduction of point light sources as fine rounded points, even at the periphery of an image.

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 aperture, sharp results
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.

Even brightness
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.

Less flare
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).
