Nikon 85mm f/3.5G AF-S DX ED VR Micro Nikkor Lens for Nikon Digital SLR Cameras
The Nikon AF-S DX Micro Nikkor 85mm f3.8G ED VR Lens includes a long list of features that make it excellent for macro work. With a minimum focus distance of 11.26 inches and a 85mm zoom, images are captured at that 1:1 ratio that means exceptionally detailed close-ups. Camera shake is more noticeable at the macro level, so Nikon has included their latest image stabilization system, VRII. The internal focus means that the distance between the lens and subject doesn't change as the camera focuses and filters and hoods also stay in place. The minimum aperture of f3.5 is a bit higher, but the nine blade diaphragm should still help create a decent depth of field. And like most of Nikon's top lenses, this one includes a quiet autofocus motor, extra-low dispersion elements and integrated lens coatings.
