The Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 58mm f/1.4G lens is a fast prime lens designed to excel in low-light with a bright f/1.4 maximum aperture. You'll get evenly lit images with edge-to-edge sharpness, and the two aspherical elements combined with a Nano Crystal Coating and Nikon's Super Integrated Coating virtually eliminates sagittal coma or light falloff. The 9-blade diaphragm delivers beautiful bokeh and depth of field control from f/1.4 to infinity.
Outstanding low-light photos and videos
When shooting photos or video in low light—especially at night—you often want your lens aperture wide open. With many lenses, though, shooting at maximum aperture can cause a slight distortion at the edge of your frame—points of light render as diamond-shaped flares. The AF-S NIKKOR 58mm f/1.4G is specially designed to combat this distortion while providing even brightness across the frame. Capture sharp, evenly lit photos and videos, edge to edge.
9 rounded-blade aperture for excellent bokeh control
The AF-S NIKKOR 58mm f/1.4G adds a dramatic sense of depth to your compositions—both at short distances as well as long-distance landscapes. When shooting stills of a close subject, the AF-S NIKKOR 58mm f/1.4G can achieve beautiful bokeh with soft, natural edges that diminishes smoothly away from your focal point. When recording HD video, use these outstanding bokeh characteristics for interesting smooth focusing transitions and drawing attention to your subject.
Versatile 58mm focal length
Paying homage to the acclaimed Noct Nikkor 58mm f/1.2, the 58mm focal length falls in the sweet spot between a standard lens (50mm) and a medium telephoto lens (85mm). On an FX-format D-SLR, it offers a natural perspective with just enough telephoto characteristic to exaggerate depth of field. On a DX-format D-SLR, its 87mm equivalent perspective is ideal for portraits and other medium telephoto uses.
