Sentiment Score 82%
Reviewers from cameralabs have found the following***:
The new Nikon 105mm f1.4E is a worthy member of what has already become a legendary line-up. It delivers sharp and clear images with superb quality across the sensor. But with an eye-watering price-tag of 4500 USD / 4000 EUR and no auto-focus on the Otus it decidedly looks like the better choice.

  • Sharp and contrasty shots right into the corners of a high resolution full-frame sensor
  • Very good image quality to boot
  • Easy to use wide open
