This is one of those lenses that you almost don’t even know you want until somebody announces that it exists. I’ve been using my Nikon 105mm f/2.8D AF Micro-Nikkor as a portrait lens for years and always loved it. It’s one of my absolute favourites. I never really thought about a potentially faster version. Until now.
Nikon have today announced the AF-S Nikkor 105mm f/1.4E ED lens, a very fast take on their 105mm legacy which includes the very popular 105mm f/2.8G AF-S Micro-Nikkor and slightly less common 105mm f/2D AF DC.
