Outstanding low-light photos and videos

Virtually no sagittal coma flare or light falloff

When shooting photos or video in low light—especially at night—you often want your lens aperture wide open. With many lenses, though, shooting at maximum aperture can cause a slight distortion at the edge of your frame—points of light render as diamond-shaped flares. The AF-S NIKKOR 58mm f/1.4G is specially designed to combat this distortion while providing even brightness across the frame. Capture sharp, evenly lit photos and videos, edge to edge.

Natural depth of field, beautiful bokeh

9 rounded-blade aperture for excellent bokeh control

The AF-S NIKKOR 58mm f/1.4G adds a dramatic sense of depth to your compositions—both at short distances as well as long-distance landscapes. When shooting stills of a close subject, the AF-S NIKKOR 58mm f/1.4G can achieve beautiful bokeh with soft, natural edges that diminishes smoothly away from your focal point. When recording HD video, use these outstanding bokeh characteristics for interesting smooth focusing transitions and drawing attention to your subject. .

Flattering, versatile perspective

Versatile 58mm focal length

Paying homage to the acclaimed Noct Nikkor 58mm f/1.2, the 58mm focal length falls in the sweet spot between a standard lens (50mm) and a medium telephoto lens (85mm). On an FX-format D-SLR, it offers a natural perspective with just enough telephoto characteristic to exaggerate depth of field. On a DX-format D-SLR, its 87mm equivalent perspective is ideal for portraits and other medium telephoto uses.

For applications such as environmental portraits or low-light shooting at large apertures, it's superb. We expect many wedding photographers will absolutely adore it.

Conclusion

The AF-S Nikkor 58mm f/1.4G is an unusual lens, both in terms of its slightly eccentric focal length and its optical design philosophy. It's not especially sharp for a lens that's designed to be used at large apertures, but this is offset by the excellence of its images in almost every other respect. Its audience will naturally be limited by its sky-high price, but we suspect many owners will fall in love with the images it can create.

Reasons to buy

  • Produces lovely-looking images almost all the time
  • Very low chromatic aberration
  • Lower-than-usual vignetting
  • Minimal coma
  • Lovely bokeh
  • Generally resistant to flare

Things to consider

  • Soft wide open, especially on DX cameras
  • Relatively bulky (compared to Nikkor 50mm F1.4s)
  • Inconsistent autofocus
  • Very expensive

Suggested for

Low light photography, and selective focus shooting

Not suggested for

FX photographers looking for a general purpose 'normal' prime - the 50mm f/1.4G is likely a better choice

Verified Purchase
Nikon charges a premium for the 58/1.4g and purchasing this lens is a very personal decision. Why would you buy this 58? If you want gorgeous bokeh and out of focus rendering. If you want shallow DOF and a dreamy look or glow to your portraits. If you want a superb low light lens. If you want a lens that takes the place of a 50 and 85 in your camera bag. In fact the last reason does not get enough attention. Not perfectly, but this lens can produce portraits similar to the 85 while retaining the versatility of the 50. Kind of a two for one lens deal. There are other reasons, but these should suffice.

And of course there are a couple of things to consider. At close distance, the DOF is very thin so I recommend making certain the focus is fine tuned to your camera. The lens has been criticized for lack of sharpness wide open. No question, the lens is sharper at f2, but IMO sharpness is not an issue wide open as long as focus is spot on.

The lens is about the same size and weight as the 85/1.8g and handles and balances fine on a D800e. Focus speed is fast and consistent in good light and bad. No complaints.

Nikon charges a premium going from the 85/1.8g to the 85/1.4g, from the 50/1.8g to the 50/1.4g. The only question is whether it's worth paying a premium for the 58/1.4g - and that is a decision you must make. I did and am very pleased.

Disclaimer: My photography is in weddings and general day to day shooting. I do not shoot night skies, or point sources of light at night, which this lens is believed to be made for as the new Noct f/1.2.

To summarize, this new 58mm f/1.4 feels very much like a mini 85mm f/1.4G which is lighter, not as sharp and slightly more expensive. It's hazy soft at f/1.4 (it's soft in all the lighting conditions i tested it in), acceptable at f/2.0 and sharp at f/4.0. Its sharpness characteristic is very similar to the 50mm f/1.4G, but it has very nice soft rendering of colors and out of focus areas at f/1.4 unlike the 50mm.If you need a shorter focal length than 85mm, yet you want to keep the nice colors and bokeh, and doesnt mind about the price, this lens might be for you.

It feels noticeably lighter (feels very much like the plasticky 85mm f/1.8G), has a weird 72mm filter thread and a relatively expensive price tag. AF is slow, just like the 50mm and the 85mm, presumably to try to get perfect focus at such shallow depth of field. I actually like the focal length, it's not as close in as the 85mm and not as wide as 35mm or 50mm, this can be a nice focal length for certain portraits. I tested it on a D800E, after AF fine tuning and constantly use images taken with live view as a benchmark for sharpness to avoid any AF errors from the camera body. If the lens is this unsharp at f/1.4, I personally do not see the need for Nikon to make this a f/1.2, as it will just get worse. However, I can imagine many might find the softness perfect for portraits.

There's no doubt buyers have many choices at this price point: the 50mm 1.8 1.4 85mm 1.4 1.8 or even the sigma 50mm. So unless you absolutely need a best 58mm that nikon has to offer, you will probably be ok with any other lens.

I've been using it on my D800 for about 2 weeks, 500+ photos. The reason I chose it was that I shot 85%+ of the photos in the 50mm range in the past two years. I love the focal range but I am not very satisfied with the bokeh of the 50mm/1.4g.
The low light photos from the 58mm are noticeably clearer than those from the 50mm; the bokeh is noticeably smoother than the 50mm. The color-rendering is better. It handles portraitures a bit more conveniently than the 50mm. As long as the photos are precisely focused, they are just stunning.

In general, I am very satisfied with it. The reasons I didn't give it a five-star - I have to put in a +12 AF fine tune on the camera. the value for my old 50/1.4g is only +2. Auto focus is fast, but not fast enough to catch dancing people (but this is expected for a prime lens like this).

If your copy is not tack-sharp, try the AF fine tune on the camera first. If your camera body can't do AF fine tune, you better figure out how to fine-tune the lens before making the purchase.

I owned this lens for a short time, but then sold it. On the plus side, you can use this lens to create some gorgeous effects, as the out of focus areas look amazing. On the minus side, the lens is very soft when shot wide open, and I found it very difficult to focus accurately, unless using live view, and that isn't practical for most portrait situations. At f/2.0, things get better, and the out of focus areas are still beautiful...which makes me wish Nikon had a f/1.8 lens with similar characteristics for a much more reasonable price. Depending on your style of shooting, for example, if you like making dreamy portraits, this may be the perfect lens for you, but make sure you know what you're getting before you spend your money.

I own the current 24mm 1.4G, the 35mm 1.4G, and the 85mm 1.4G lenses. These lenses are all wonderful. They're sharp, professional-grade lenses that perform well in low light with beautiful bokeh, the 85mm 1.4G in particular. Despite owning these wonderful lenses I find myself using my 50mm1.4G around 90% of the time when using a prime lens. This is because the 50mm focal range is so much more versatile and useful to me with the type of photography that I do. I like the 1.4 aperture for its razor-sharp depth of field and low light ability. However, it has always bothered me that my 50mm 1.4G lens is not as sharp as the $200 50mm 1.8G lens. Furthermore, my 50mm 1.4G in no way compares to the quality, both build and optical to my other prime lenses. Honestly, I was hoping that Nikon would build a professional-grade 50mm f/1.2 lens like Canon has, but was happy to hear about this new 58mm 1.4G lens and pre-ordered it. I have never done this for any lens, but since this focal length is my bread-and-butter I went ahead and splurged.

I wish that it took a 77mm filter like my other professional lenses (except the 35mm 1.4G which takes a 67mm - what up Nikon?), but a minimal step up ring solves that problem. I don't tend to use the hood on my 50mm 1.4G and probably won't on this lens as the front elements on both lenses are deep and protected without one. Also, not a lot of lens flare occurs in low light. Therefore, I can probably leave the step up ring on full-time (just need a 77mm lens cap). That all said, this lens is quite a bit larger and heavier that my consumer-grade plastic 50mm. It's shaped just like a smaller version of the 85mm 1.4G, which is lovely in my opinion. While larger and heavier than the 50mm it feels good on my D700 and D800E, with or without the battery grips.
