Unique character: f/1.4 maximum aperture and 105mm focal length
This FX-format prime lens will perfectly reflect your personal aesthetic. The 105 mm focal length combines with a shortest focusing distance of 1 m to enable frame-filling head-shots without the need to crop. The unique optical design enables every component of the scene to be faithfully reproduced: even when shooting wide-open, the finest fabrics can be captured in all their beauty. And the rounded 9-blade diaphragm produces stunning bokeh, and enables sensitive depth-of-field control.
Beautiful bokeh: depth and dimension
Thanks to its unique optical construction, this lens offers wonderfully smooth bokeh and can endow subjects with a beautifully natural-looking sense of depth. The intensity of image blur transitions smoothly as the distance from the sharply focused point increases, enabling bokeh with no rough edges. And the fine gradation of bokeh from the focus point to the background renders images with an incredible sense of natural depth. The benefits extend to movies, too: when pulling focus, bokeh transitions incredibly smoothly, providing a unique advantage when it comes to filming atmospheric scenes.
Drawing with light: unbeatable performance when shooting wide-open
The AF-S NIKKOR 105mm f/1.4E ED enables exceptional aesthetic control. Subjects are rendered with perfect clarity even when shooting at the widest aperture of f/1.4. Sagittal coma flare is effectively minimised for superior reproduction of point light sources as fine rounded points, even at the edges of an image. Peripheral light falloff is controlled to retain brightness across the frame, and subjects located at the edge of the frame are sharp and well resolved, even when shooting at maximum aperture with focus set to infinity.
Legendary Nikkor quality
Nine rounded aperture blades decrease diffraction, delivering faithful reproduction of a scene’s elements. AE control is rendered exceptionally stable—even during a high-speed burst—thanks to the incorporation of an electromagnetic aperture control mechanism in the lens barrel. Nano Crystal Coat effectively reduces ghost and flare, and autofocus is smooth, quiet, and swift as a result of Nikon’s SWM (Silent Wave Motor). Three extra-low-dispersion (ED) glass elements minimise axial chromatic aberration. The front and rear lens elements are protected and made easier to clean by Nikon’s fluorine coat, which effectively repels dust, dirt, water, and grease.

Can I repay early? If so how?
No repayments are scheduled in the initial six-month deferral period. However, it is possible to pay off the loan, either by way of a lump sum or in smaller amounts. If the loan is fully repaid within the six-month deferral period, then no interest is payable, but a £29.00 early-settlement will be incurred. Such repayments may be made to Barclays Partner Finance by cheque, debit card or standing order. Unfortunately it is not possible to set up a direct debit within the deferral period. Further information on how to make such repayments will be set out in the loan agreement pack provided by Barclays Partner Finance.
What happens if I don't repay within the first six months (deferral period)?
Following the six month deferral period, Barclays Partner Finance will initiate a monthly direct debit payment for the remaining duration of the loan. Interest will be charged at a rate of 19.9% APR on outstanding balances (backdated to the first date of the loan). Late payment penalties and early repayment charges will apply from this point. Barclays Partner Finance will send a reminder letter approximately one month before the six month deferral period is due to elapse. Note: If you chose to spread the cost and pay monthly, interest is charged from the start of the loan, not from the start of the repayment period.
What will I receive from the finance provider (lender)?
Barclays Partner Finance will send a loan agreement pack approximately four weeks after delivery of the goods, confirming that the account has been activated and, from this point, it is possible to make repayments against the loan.
