Nikkor AF-S DX 85mm f/3.5G ED Micro

Nikkor 85mm f/3.5G ED Micro AF-S DX

The new Nikkor AF-S DX 85mm f/3.5G ED Micro lens from Nikon is a compact, easy-to-carry and easy-to-use medium-telephoto lens that can be used for nearly any application.

Recommended for use with digital SLRs, this lens, with its built in Vibration Reduction mechanism and optical system with Extra-low Dispersion glass, takes images that are sharply focused, beautifully rendered and beyond the quality of the typical digital image.

The Silent Wave motor, a unique feature of this lens, offers whisper-quiet function through out all modes of the camera’s operation, perfect for the fast, discreet shooting of subjects like insects and other wildlife and the Internal Focusing mechanism offers a constant barrel length and precise focus for macro-shooting, so you’ll never lose that perfect shot.

The Nikkor AF-S DX 85mm f/3.5G ED Micro lens is currently available at lens major retailers for USD $529.95.

Medium-telephoto Micro lens with VR enhances the enjoyment of macro photography

TOKYO — Nikon Corporation is pleased to announce the new AF-S DX Micro NIKKOR 85mm f/3.5G ED VR, a DX-format, medium-telephoto micro lens with built-in Vibration Reduction (VR II) and Silent Wave Motor (SWM). With a focal length of 85mm, this compact and lightweight lens is recommended for users of Nikon DX-format digital SLRs such as the D5000 and D90. The18°50’picture angle is equivalent to a focal length of 127.5mm in Nikon FX- and 35mm-format cameras).

The AF-S DX Micro NIKKOR 85mm f/3.5G ED VR can be used in a wide range of applications. While users can enjoy the natural perspective and beautiful blur that a medium-telephoto lens can offer in landscapes and portraits, this micro lens is especially expected to promote the enjoyment of macro photography for taking insects, small animals and flowers. High resolving power is realized throughout the entire shooting range from infinity to the closest focusing distance (1:1 life size) to reproduce even the fine texture of flower petals.

Built-in VR II (Vibration Reduction) enables users to take sharp pictures at shutter speeds approximately four stops slower* than would otherwise be possible, thereby minimizing image blur caused by camera shake. This remarkably expands user freedom during hand-held shooting. In addition, blur-corrected image in the viewfinder makes focusing and composition easy. *As determined in Nikon performance tests

Built-in SWM (Silent Wave Motor) enables quiet AF operation, especially effective for the macro shooting of easily disturbed subjects such as insects and small animals. Internal Focusing (IF) system means the lens barrel length does not change during focusing, which ensures worry-free macro shooting. (Revised on October 16, 2009) M/A (manual-priority autofocus) mode enables instant switching from autofocus to manual focus by rotating the focus ring, even during AF servo operation. This permits fine focus adjustment without removing your eye from the viewfinder.
