  • Medium Telephoto VR Lens
  • Vibration Reduction (VR II)
  • Silent Wave Motor (SWM)
  • Filter Diameter: 52mm
  • Picture angle is equivalent to a focal length of 127.5mm in FX/35mm format
  • Closest focusing distance of 0.286 m/0.9 ft.
  • Optical system featuring an Extra-low Dispersion (ED) glass element is optimized for DX-format digital SLRs
  • Vibration Reduction (VR II) enables sharper pictures while shooting at shutter speeds up to four stops slower than would otherwise be possible
  • Silent Wave Motor (SWM) ensures fast, quiet AF operation
  • Two focus modes available - M/A and M
  • Internal Focusing (IF) enables focusing without changing the length of lens barrel
  • The nine-blade rounded diaphragm opening gives out-of-focus elements a more natural appearance
  • Designed specifically for extreme close-up photography, it is also perfectly suited for portrait, nature and general imaging
  • Focusing as close as 0.286 m (0.9 ft), this lens allows photographers to capture breathtaking close-up images with life-size reproduction ratios up to 1:1, helping to ensure that even the most subtle of subject detail is reproduced faithfully
  • With a Nikon DX format digital SLR camera, this lens renders a picture angle equivalent of 127.5mm (in the 35mm or FX-format), providing a natural perspective along with a desirable and practical lens-to-subject working distance
  • Specifically engineered for use with Nikon's assortment of DX-format digital SLRs, this lens features Nikon's Silent Wave Motor (SWM) technology, Extra Low Dispersion (ED) glass and an Internal Focusing (IF) design
  • While optimized for DX-format digital SLRs, this lens is also compatible with Nikon FX-format digital SLRs when used in their DX crop mode
  • Dramatic close-up perspectives can be captured in beautiful HD video with digital SLR cameras such as the Nikon D5000, D90 and the D300s
  • Incorporates the benefit of Vibration Reduction (VR II) Image Stabilization technology, which gives photographers the ability to shoot at shutter speeds up to four stops slower than would otherwise be possible, while dramatically reducing the image blur caused by camera shake in handheld photography
  • Nikon VR image stabilization is specifically engineered for each lens into which it is incorporated, ensuring optimum image stabilization benefit
  • Nikon's lens-based VR also stabilizes the camera's viewfinder image, making composing and capturing images and movies easier
  • Nikon's SWM provides fast, quiet and accurate autofocus performance and Nikon's IF design further enhances AF performance, while also allowing photographers to manually focus quickly and smoothly
  • Additional benefits to IF include the elimination of both front lens element rotation and changes in lens length during focusing
  • Constant lens length improves balance and overall handling, while doing away with front element rotation making the use of front-mounted accessories such as polarizer or the Nikon Wireless Close-up Speedlight System much more convenient
  • Optical construction consists of 14 elements in 10 groups, while the addition of an ED glass element minimizes chromatic aberration, enhancing the len's ability to deliver stunning, high-contrast images with accurate and well-saturated colours
  • Rounded nine-blade diaphragm opening allows out-of-focus background or foreground scene information to appear more naturally blurred
  • Specifications:

This is a must have lense! Tack sharp and manual focus overide in M/A mode is very useful! Also a great portrait/general purpose lense.
