Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 105mm f/1.4E ED Lens MTF Bench Tests

Roger Cicala at LensRentals has completed the MTF bench tests of the new Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 105mm f/1.4E ED lens ($2,196.95) saying that this is the sharpest f/1.4 lens Nikon has made from the MTF standpoint.

The optical bench confirms very nicely what the early reviews have said: this is an exceptionally sharp lens edge-to-edge. Optically, it’s probably the best thing Nikon has put out in several years; it’s a genuinely world-class optic. It’s not inexpensive, but it is less expensive than a lot of other lenses that have optical quality like this.

Here are some comparison charts (Nikon 105mm f/1.4E compared with several different lenses):

Nikon 85mm f/1.4G ($1,596.95) vs Nikon 105mm f/1.4E ED ($2,196.95): “The 105mm f/1.4 keeps that smooth even look, but is far sharper.
