Lens Description: A low-light powerhouse that shines in nearly any situation. Go beyond the ordinary with the NIKKOR 58mm f/1.4G, a lens designed to excel in low-light and nighttime applications but with characteristics you'll enjoy for so much more. Its fast f/1.4 maximum aperture produces outstanding evenly lit images with edge-to-edge sharpness - virtually no sagittal coma or light falloff. Its unique design and rounded 9-blade diaphragm produce stunning bokeh and depth of field control from f/1.4 to infinity - equally useful in daytime portraits and nighttime cityscapes. Whether you're shooting photos or HD video, FX or DX-format, the NIKKOR 58mm f/1.4G offers thrilling new capabilities and inspiration.

Photography Life Review Summary: Overall, I am very impressed by what the Nikon 58mm f/1.4G can deliver. It is surely the finest Nikkor lens in the standard range that is capable of producing beautiful images that stand out with a distinct, three dimensional look and feel. I am glad that Nikon chose a different path for optical design this time around and concentrated more on aesthetics, rather than on pure optical performance. I believe that was much needed for the 58mm f/1.4G to stand a chance against its predecessor, the NOCT 58mm f/1.2. Read the full Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 58mm f/1.4G Review by Photography Life.
