Yet it is remarkably light and compact, with excellent speed and all-over definition. The 43-86 is such a popular travel companion that special, compact eveready cases are available for Nikon or Nikkormat slr's with this lens attached.
Many team it up with a 24 or 28mm Auto Nikkor wide angle and 135 or 200mm telephoto for an excellent all-round picture-taking combination. The 43-86mm Nikkor Zoom has an automatic-reopen diaphragm and couples for thru-the-lens exposure control at full aperture. It can be focused as close as 4 feet using the combined zoom/focus collar.
