Of all the focal lengths, this latest one has us scratching our heads just a bit. Today, Nikon is announcing a 58mm f1.4 FX lens. The release is apparently to pay homage to the 58mm f1.2 Nikkor prime from years ago. This new lens features 9 aperture blades for super creamy bokeh, 9 elements in 6 groups, two aspherical elements, a 72mm filter thread, and comes with a bayonet hood and soft pouch.
This lens has similarities with other companies’ offerings recently. Zeiss and Sony have both put out two 55mm lenses and this one is just a tad longer. Maybe the nifty 50 might be going the way of the dinosaur?
If you’re looking to spring for the lens, you’ll need to fork over $1,699.99. Full spec list is after the jump.
