A fast normal lens for which advanced optical design technologies have been adopted for both superior rendering of point light sources and beautiful bokeh with smooth focusing transition from blurred to sharp.
The AF-S NIKKOR 58mm f/1.4G is a lens that makes the most of advanced optical design technologies long cultivated by Nikon to achieve high reproduction capability of point light sources even at the maximum aperture, and natural depth of subjects utilizing smooth and beautiful bokeh characteristics. With shooting of distant night landscapes, the lens minimizes the sagittal coma flare that makes a point light source look like a bird with its wings spread to render point light sources as sharp points with no distortion or fringes across the entire frame, even at maximum aperture, for clear and crisp night landscape shots.
In addition, the AF-S NIKKOR 58mm f/1.4G renders subjects impressively with beautiful bokeh that moderately changes as the distance from the sharply focused point increases for natural depth that makes near human subjects or still objects appear more three dimensional. Despite being a fast lens, not only is light falloff controlled for natural brightness across the entire frame even at the maximum aperture of f/1.4, for sharp rendering of objects at infinity, the adoption of Nano Crystal Coat also effectively reduces flare and ghost in images. This single lens responds to the demands of professional and advanced amateur photographers looking to achieve their desired images with all types of photos, from night landscapes to impressive photos with bokeh.
• A fast normal lens with a focal length of 58mm and maximum aperture of f/1.4 that utilizes advanced optical design technologies
• Minimization of sagittal coma flare for high reproduction capability of point light sources as sharp points across the entire frame
• Sharp, high-resolution images can be reproduced even at the maximum aperture
• Original lens characteristics that provide natural depth reproduction with which the degree of bokeh moderately changes as the distance from the sharply focused point increases
• Controlled light falloff retains natural brightness across the entire frame even at the maximum aperture of f/1.4
• Nano Crystal Coat effectively reduces flare and ghost

The AF-S NIKKOR 58mm f/1.4G was developed as a lens that offers new photographic creativity that is only possible with NIKKOR lenses. Point light source reproduction capability with superior resolution and no distortion or fringes was improved with further development of the concept behind the Ai Noct Nikkor 58mm f/1.2 (released in 1977), which enabled rendering of point light sources as sharp points, as well as adoption of advanced optical design technologies based on 80 years of Nikon know-how and optical technologies. In
addition, we also adopted a design concept based on the reproduction of three-dimensional subjects as natural images with depth in two-dimensional photography for a “three-dimensionally high-fidelity lens”. As a result, the lens also offers beautiful bokeh capabilities.
This exclusive reproduction capability expands the ways in which users express themselves for positioning that distinguishes it from other lenses.
The 80th Anniversary of the NIKKOR brand and NIKKOR sales
NIKKOR is Nikon's brand of photographic lenses. This year, the NIKKOR brand
celebrates its 80th anniversary. The NIKKOR name arose from adding "r"—a common practice in the naming of photographic lenses at the time the name was established—to "Nikko", the Romanized abbreviation for Nippon Kogaku K.K., the original name used when the company was established. Nikon's high-quality standards are applied to all stages from the initial design and development to the final product release for design that responds to user needs, and production system and inspections that ensure the superior quality of NIKKOR lenses.
Nikon's line-up of lenses for cameras with interchangeable lenses currently
consists of more than 80 types of lenses, including ultra wide-angle to super-telephoto lenses, fisheye lenses, zoom lenses, micro lenses, and PC-E lenses that support a wide variety of applications, as well as 1 NIKKOR lenses for advanced cameras with interchangeable lenses. Nikon will continue to develop and release high-quality products that appeal to users all over the world.
Price and availability will be announced soon!
