Nikon Nikkor 85mm F/3.5 G Micro ED DX AF-S VR Autofocus Lens For APS-C Sensor DSLRS {52} Description


The AF-S DX Micro-Nikkor 85mm f/3.5G ED VR is a short-telephoto macro photography lens designed exclusively for DX format on Nikon DSLR cameras.  The Nikkor 85mm f/3.5 VR offers unaugmented 1:1 life-size magnification with more working distance for lighting than a normal macro (perfect for close-up photography and low distortion copy work); it's also a wonderful portrait and general photography lens that produces an angle-of-view equivalent to using a 127mm lens on a Full Frame FX format camera.

The 85mm f/3.5 VR can continuously autofocus from infinity to life-size (1:1).  The internal focusing (IF) design incorporates a Silent Wave Motor (SWM) to for smooth, quiet, accurate, and quick focusing and the M/A focus mode setting allows full time manual focus override.  The integral VR (Vibration Reduction) II image stabilization system enables hand held shooting at shutter speeds up to 4 stops slower than otherwise possible; it's a major advantage when tripod shooting isn't possible.
