Nikon AF-S Nikkor 58mm f/1.4G Lens Review

Nikon Nikkor AF S 58mm F1 4G (3)

This standard lens from Nikon costs around £1560 and sports a bright f/1.4 maximum aperture, silent focusing and nano-crystal coatings to help control ghosting and flare. The 58mm focal length is reminiscent of the old AI 'Noct' Nikkor that was designed specifically for shooting in low light with a maximum aperture of f/1.2. The aspheric lens design minimised coma flare towards the edges of the frame, which is common with fast aperture lenses. Although this lens promises similar control over coma, it doesn't carry the Noct name, and the maximum aperture is slower. Is the quality delivered by this lens still enough to justify the extra money over a standard 50mm lens? We'll take a close look at how it performs in this review.
