Shortlist:

  • Nikon AF-S Nikkor 105mm F1.4E ED
  • Olympus M.Zuiko Digital ED 25mm F1.2 Pro
  • Sigma 85mm F1.4 DG HSM Art
  • Sigma 30mm F1.4 DC DN | C

Runner-up: Nikon AF-S Nikkor 105mm F1.4E ED

If competition was fierce among zoom lenses this year, if anything it was even fiercer in the prime lenses category. New releases from several manufacturers really raised the bar, and Nikon's excellent new 105mm F1.4 portrait lens took the runner-up spot in a very tough field.
