- Realizes effective suppression of sagittal coma
flare* for superior point image reproduction characteristics beginning at maximum aperture
Since its release, the AF-S NIKKOR 58mm f/1.4G has been extremely well received for its ability to minimize sagittal coma
flare* for rendering of point light sources as sharp points with no distortion or fringes across the entire frame, even at maximum aperture.
In addition, adoption of an ED lens element and an aspherical lens element, which ensure superior image quality, and optical design that controls sagittal coma flare for excellent point image formation make the lens capable of maximizing the distinctive characteristics of high pixel-count digital SLR cameras with expression of the finest details.
Optical design that considers point image formation for very little sagittal coma flare
With shooting of distant night landscapes, the lens minimizes the sagittal coma
flare that makes a point light source look like a bird with its wings spread to render point light sources as sharp points with no distortion or fringes across the entire frame, even at maximum aperture, for clear and crisp night landscape shots.
