The world’s first macro lens featuring Nikon’s exclusive Silent Wave Motor (SWM) and Vibration Reduction (VR) designed for close-up and macro photography – versatile for all photographic situations. Providing continuous focusing from infinity to life-size (1:1), offering extra working distance in demanding conditions. Closest focusing distance is 0.314 meter VR II (Vibration Reduction) image stabilisation, engineered specifically for each VR NIKKOR lens, enables handheld shooting at up to 4 shutter speeds slower than would otherwise be possible, assuring dramatically sharper still images and video capture.
- High-resolution and high optical performance with Nano Crystal coat and Extra-low Dispersion (ED) glass elements enhances overall image quality by further reducing flare and chromatic aberrations, contributing to improved colour, contrast and clarity
- Internal Focus (IF) provides fast and quiet auto focusing without changing the length of the lens, retaining subject working distance thorough the focus range.Lens Construction (Elements/Groups):14/12 (1 ED glass, 1 Nano Crystal Coat-deposited lens elements)
