If you work on a full-frame Nikon with an F-mount and like to shoot close-up, whether portraits, products, or macro photography, this is the lens for you. A 1:1 production ratio, Silent Wave Motor, and Nikon’s Vibration Reduction System work together to create incredibly sharp images.
Nikon combined standard optical glass with its proprietary formula to virtually eliminate aberrations and distortion. One extra-low dispersion element eliminates color fringing and chromatic aberrations while Nikon’s Nano Crystal Coat and Super Integrated Coating take care of lens reflections, flare, and ghosting—providing greater contrast, even in bright light or backlight.
Autofocus is fast and silent, thanks in part to the Silent Wave Motor, and in part to the internal focusing system, making this lens is an excellent choice for video as well as still photography. A manual/autofocus (M/A) switch makes changing from autofocus to manual focus instantaneous.
Although it’s optimized for macro photography, this lens performs incredibly well during portrait sessions as well due to the medium-telephoto angle-of-view. Four stops of compensation make it easier to get clear macro shots without a tripod.
