Features

The AF-S DX Micro NIKKOR 85mm f/3.5G ED VR is the lens that can be used in a wide range of applications, from the natural perspective and blur that a medium-telephoto lens can offer in landscapes and portraits, to macro photography for taking insects, small animals and flowers. The lens features built-in VR II (Vibration Reduction) that enables users to take pictures at shutter speeds approximately four stops slower than would otherwise be possible, minimizing image blur caused by camera shake. This provides users with the freedom during hand-held shooting and allows them to compose blur-corrected image in the viewfinder. Other features on the lens include built-in SWM (Silent Wave Motor) enables quiet AF operation, for the macro shooting of easily disturbed subjects such as insects and small animals; Internal Focusing (IF) system where the lens barrel length does not change during focusing, which provides optimized macro shooting; M/A (manual-priority autofocus) mode enables instant switching from autofocus to manual focus by rotating the focus ring, even during AF servo operation and allows fine focus adjustment without removing the eye from the viewfinder. The nine-blade rounded diaphragm opening gives out-of-focus elements a more natural appearance.
