The fastest 100-105mm class lens of its time and constructed with the fewest lens elements. This lens never disappoints, offering similarly both in top class optical performance and supreme built quality.

Magnification double that of a normal lens produces photographs which draw the viewer’s eye to the subject.

Released in 1981, the 105mm f/1.8 Nikkor AIS (also known as AI Nikkor 105mm f/1.8S) sold for roughly twelve years. That is quite a long time for a particular product.

The lens was introduced genetically as an Ai-S native lens despite it being introduced much earlier than some of the corresponding Nikon SLR models which requires Ai-S features for their AE exposure control. For quite a long spell of time, the lens speed of f/1.8 remained the fastest Nikkor telephoto lenses between the 90mm to 105mm focal range. Other than enabling good available light photography, the extra gain of one stop lens speed also provides greater depth of field control.

Please note that the following important points when you see our grading description. When applied to lenses it means that the optics are in perfect condition. What we are describing is the cosmetic condition of the lens barrel. When it applies to cameras, motor drives, speedlights etc. the understanding is that the item is in perfect working order and the description would mean the exterior appearance. In other words we are judging cosmetic appearance.
