Portraits and landscapes at their prime.
Introducing the latest NIKKOR prime lens worthy of wearing the coveted NIKKOR gold ring. The AF-S NIKKOR 28mm f/1.4E ED is a dynamo at capturing beautifully rich and detailed still images and movies in any light. On FX-format cameras, its fixed 28mm focal length gives your shots a natural, true-to-memory feel. Its fast maximum aperture of f/1.4 delivers beautiful depth of field with exquisite bokeh characteristics any time of the day or night, and its durable, agile design makes it a workhorse for the most passionate shooters.
Beauty as you see it - Natural 28mm focal length and f/1.4 aperture
With a 28mm angle of view, the AF-S NIKKOR 28mm f/1.4E ED is the perfect lens for reproducing naturally vast spaces with a depth just as you see it. Compositions and perspectives will appear natural and just as you intended, making the AF-S NIKKOR 28mm f/1.4E ED a thrilling lens to spend the day (and night) with, capturing portraits, landscapes, architecture and interiors with high resolution and outstanding definition.
Images that astound - Gold Ring Series optical performance
The AF-S NIKKOR 28mm f/1.4E ED delivers peak performance from Nikon DSLRs, especially the latest generation of high-resolution cameras. Expect stunning sharpness across the entire frame regardless of aperture setting and minimal distortion. Use its large and beautiful bokeh to soften backgrounds and accentuate foreground/background relationships.
Unwavering consistency - Advanced lens technologies
The AF-S NIKKOR 28mm f/1.4E ED lens takes optical design to the next level. Two ED glass elements and three Aspherical (AS) lens elements combat chromatic aberration and color fringing for stunning sharpness and contrast. Nano Crystal Coat (N) cuts through ghosting and flare for outstanding backlight tolerance. Expect consistent, brilliant photos and videos.
Reliability refined - Durable design and agile performance
Despite its incredible imaging power, the AF-S NIKKOR 28mm f/1.4E ED is simply a tool used to realize your creative vision. In order to provide a lifetime of exceptional photography, every effort was made to ensure dependability and worry-free functionality, regardless of weather conditions or harsh environaments. Fluorine Coat effectively repels dust and drips while all movable parts are sealed for further protection from the elements. To provide smooth, highly accurate focusing with comfortable operation, focus ring operation was refined for optimum torque and usability while manually focusing.
A lens with a curved, non-spherical surface. Used to reduce aberrations and enable a more compact lens size. Aspherical lenses minimize coma and other types of lens aberrations, even when used at the widest aperture. They are particularly useful in correcting distortion in wide-angle lenses and help contribute to a lighter, more compact design by reducing the number of standard (spherical) elements necessary. Aspherical lens elements correct these distortions by continuously changing the refractive index from the center of the lens.
Electromagnetic Diaphragm Mechanism
An electromagnetic diaphragm mechanism in the lens barrel provides highly accurate electronic diaphragm or aperture blade control when using auto exposure during continuous shooting. With conventional D/G type lenses, the diaphragm blades are operated by mechanical linkage levers.
ED (Extra-Low Dispersion) Glass
An optical glass developed by Nikon that is used with normal optical glass in telephoto lenses to obtain optimum correction of chromatic aberrations.
Nano Crystal Coat
An anti-reflective coating developed by Nikon that virtually eliminates internal lens element reflections across a wide range of wavelengths. Nano Crystal Coat uses ultrafine, nano-sized crystal particles to eliminate reflections inside the lens throughout the spectrum of visible light waves (380 to 780 nm) in ways that far exceed the limits of conventional antireflection coating systems. Nano Crystal Coat not only solves ghost effects caused by red light, which was incredibly difficult for previous systems. It also effectively reduces ghost and flare effects caused by light entering the lens diagonally. The result: clearer images.
Rear Focusing System
A system in which only the rear lens group moves during focusing, thus eliminating changes in the physical length of the lens during focusing and enabling faster focusing. Such lenses are designated with RF on the lens barrel.
Super Integrated Coating
Nikon Super Integrated Coating is Nikon's term for its multilayer coating of the optical elements in NIKKOR lenses.
Silent Wave Motor
AF-S NIKKOR lenses feature Nikon's Silent Wave Motor (SWM). This technology converts "traveling waves" into rotational energy to focus the optics. This enables high-speed autofocusing that's extremely accurate and super quiet.
