There’s an interesting lens coming for Nikon photographers. A new Nikon AF-S Nikkor 105mm f/1.4E ED lens has been leaked early, offering us a glimpse at the soon-to-be world’s fastest 105mm prime lens.
Digicame-info published a leaked photo of the lens (shown above) and reports that the lens will be announced this week and will hit store shelves on August 26th, 2016.
The full-frame prime N (Nano Crystal Coat) lens will have a gold ring and won’t have Vibration Reduction (VR). Nikon’s existing 105mm has VR but is slower at f/2.8. Digicame-info says the new 105mm will have an emphasis on bokeh quality.
Price-wise, the lens is rumored to have an MSRP of ¥233,280 over in Japan, which is about $2,200, but we’ll likely see a smaller price tag in the US.
