Nikon AF-S Nikkor 24mm f/1.4G ED
Nikon announce a new 24mm f/1.4 prime lens for the FX system that has a unique design to improve image quality including edge to edge and bokeh while minimising aberration and distortion.

Press Release:

Nikon today announces a class leading ultra-fast aperture wide angle lens, the AF-S NIKKOR 24mm f/1.4G ED. Designed for professional reportage and landscape photography, the new lens features a ground-breaking optical design for Nikon’s range of class leading FX-format DSLR cameras. 

Zurab Kiknadze, Product Manager Lenses, Accessories & Software, Nikon Europe says: “The new 24mm lens continues to strengthen Nikon’s professional lens line up which already includes a range of award winning NIKKOR zoom lenses such as the AF-S NIKKOR 24-70mm f/2.8G ED. The shallow depth of field and bright viewfinder image offered by this new fast aperture prime lens will appeal to many photographers, particularly in the photojournalism community.

New NIKKOR optical design
The AF-S NIKKOR 24mm f/1.4G ED features a unique optical design which provides improved image quality, with minimal distortion and excellent edge to corner sharpness especially at wider aperture settings. The new optical system combines Nikon’s exclusive anti-reflection Nano Crystal coat, ED glass and aspherical lens elements to deliver brilliant, high contrast image quality with minimised distortion and aberration. The f/1.4 aperture and nine blade rounded diaphragm contribute to render images with stunning NIKKOR trademark bokeh.

Congratulations PAL! Yes, I have been shooting with the 24mm for the last several weeks and I have never seen this kind of sharpness on a lens wide open. I will be posting some more image samples this week…heading back to Denver from Puerto Rico now. Cho Yung Tea
