One of the brightest, easiest-to-focus telephoto lenses for close-up photography - the Micro-Nikkor 105mm F/2.8. Shoot beautiful close-up shots of the hardest-to-capture subjects, from shy butterflies to wriggling reptiles, taken from a safe distance without disturbing your subjects . . .or endangering yourself; captivating portraits; and facinating photos shot when lighting is less than perfect. With the Micro-Nikkor 105mm, viewfinder image is bright and clear, even in dim illumination. And of course Nikon has assured good performance from infinity down to the closest focusing distance (1.34ft) with 1:2 reproduction ratio, even at full aperture, with its Close-Range Correction System. For further focusing extension from 1:2, just attach the Auto Extension Ring PN-11, a Teleconvertor or a bellows attachment.
