Nikon 105mm f/1.4E - worlds fastest 105mm AF lens

Featured Sunday, 31 July 2016 08:54

Nikon have just announced the worlds fastest autofocus 105mm lens. It looks good, but I foresee a few problems - let's talk it through.

Check it out in Australia at http://digidirect.com.au

    I very much enjoy your emails/reviews and videos, thank you. However, you may want to support more genuine Australian retailers, instead of listing grey market importers such as digidirect, and offshore mobs such as B&H.

    This is the best lens I have ever owned, and I simply love it. As far as size/weight goes, a lot of photographers use the Nikon 70-200/f2.8, which is a nice lens to be sure, but THAT is a lens that is big and heavy. I sold my 70-200 and got the new 105, and I'm glad I did. Yes, the 105 is big and heavy, but it isn't as big and heavy as the 70-200, and the pictures you can make with the 105 are simply gorgeous. Plus--and I haven't studied any diagrams and data (and will not do so), but this new 105 seems to be incredibly sharp, and it seems very sharp even wide open. I really cannot find anything to knock about it, and I think we should be thankful Nikon built this.

Groundbreaking. Insane image quality. Epic Dynamic Range. Great value for money. On paper it ticks SO many boxes, and it stands alone without direct competition. And honestly, after in depth testing in studio and in the field... I have no desire to own one.
