Nikon officially announced their new AF-S Nikkor 105mm f/1.4E ED lens. The US price is $2,199.95.105. Shipping starts in late August.

- Equipped with an electromagnetic aperture mechanism that enables stable exposure control, even with high-speed continuous shooting
- Highly durable fluorine coat that effectively repels dust, water, grease, and dirt applied to the outer surfaces of the two lens elements at either end (front and rear) of the lens
- Filter size: 82mm
- Lens design: 14 elements in 9 groups, with 3 ED elements (9 rounded aperture blades):
