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.
If you’d like to pixel-peep, you can find high-res versions of some of these sample photos in this Flickr album. The Nikon 105mm f/1.4 is set to hit store shelves in late August 2016, and can be pre-ordered now for $2,196.
