After an earlier leak, Nikon yesterday officially announced its new 105mm f/1.4 lens, the world’s fastest 105mm lens. The ultra-fast portrait lens is designed for beautiful bokeh, and here sample photos that show that.

The Nikon 105mm f/1.4 combines its fast f/1.4 maximum aperture with a 9-blade circular aperture to create a creamy background blur when shooting with a shallow depth of field.

Here’s a set of official sample photos released by Nikon Japan and Nikon USA:
