Durable design and agile performance
Despite its incredible imaging power, the AF-S NIKKOR 28mm f/1.4E ED is simply a tool used to realize your creative vision. In order to provide a lifetime of exceptional photography, every effort was made to ensure dependability and worry-free functionality, regardless of weather conditions or harsh environments. Fluorine Coat effectively repels dust and drips while all movable parts are sealed for further protection from the elements. To provide smooth, highly accurate focusing with comfortable operation, focus ring operation was refined for optimum torque and usability while manually focusing.
