Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 24mm f/1.4G ED Lens ($2,196.95): It is one of those “golden” lenses that performs in a class of its own. Highly advanced optical engineering, combined with Nikon technologies such as ED glass, Nano Crystal Coat and Rear Focusing combine to render exceptional 24mm image quality. The 24mm f/1.4 maximum aperture delivers remarkably bright viewing, enables extraordinary low light shooting opportunities and delivers beautifully soft backgrounds. A fast maximum aperture of f/1.4 is very effective in low light situations and provides exacting depth of field control. Designed to meet the performance demands of the larger Nikon FX format image sensor. It is, however, fully compatible with Nikon DX-format digital SLR cameras.
