Reviews of the Nikon AF-S Nikkor 105mm f/1.4E ED from around the web. »

The Nikon 105mm f1.4E is a bright mid-length telephoto lens designed for Nikon DSLRs with full-frame sensors. Historically it's the third 105mm lens with autofocus from Nikon with the 105mm f2D DC and the 105mm f2.8G Macro preceding it. With an f1.4 focal ratio, the new 105mm f1.4E becomes not just the brightest telephoto of its length from Nikon, but one of the brightest teles from any manufacturer. The only lens that boasts f1.4 at a longer focal length is the Mitakon Speedmaster 135mm f1.4, but it's been at pre-order since announcement a year ago and limited to 100 units. So in terms of wide availability, the Nikon 105mm f1.4E is pretty unique.
