Capture up-close and faraway details to stunning effect using the incredibly versatile Nikon Micro 105mm f/2.8G IF-ED VR Lens. A 1:1 reproduction ratio and close focusing distance make this lens optimised for macro and close-up photography. However, it also excels in portraiture and any photographic scenario requiring a short telephoto focal length. At 105mm you can shoot subjects close-up while maintaining your distance – ideal for capturing flowers, insects and small animals without disturbing or overshadowing them.
The Nikon Micro 105mm f/2.8G IF-ED VR Lens’ sophisticated optical design ensures breathtaking image quality right through to infinity. A constant f/2.8 maximum aperture and rounded aperture blades create gorgeously soft bokeh for standout subjects, while innovations such as Extra-low Dispersion glass and Nano Crystal Coat eliminate flare, ghosting and chromatic aberrations to deliver superior picture quality in any lighting conditions.
With the Nikon Micro 105mm f/2.8G IF-ED VR Lens you can rely on sharper stills and video, even when shooting handheld or in low-light conditions. Its highly effective Vibration Reduction (VR) system counteracts camera shake by up to 3 stops, allowing you to maintain faster shutter speeds.
Photographing candid portraits and elusive macro subjects—such as swaying flowers or drifting butterflies—requires speed, accuracy and subtlety. The Nikon Micro 105mm f/2.8G IF-ED VR Lens achieves this with Silent Wave Motor technology, which offers smooth, fast, high-precision and near-silent autofocus (AF) operation and quick switching between auto and manual focus.
An internal focusing (IF) system gives the Nikon Micro 105mm f/2.8G IF-ED VR Lens even greater usability and stability. As well as keeping the lens’ length constant, this technology prevents the front lens element from rotating, thus enabling the use of circular polarising filters and other helpful accessories such as the Nikon Close-up Speedlight Commander Kit R1C1 and Nikon Close-up Speedlight Remote Kit R1.
