This new Micro lens allows photographers to shoot 1:1 life-size close-ups without the need for any other accessories.
To ensure superior picture quality at all subject distances from macro to infinity, a host of state-of-the-art, Nikon original optical features and technologies are incorporated. A world first for an interchangeable Micro lens for SLRs, two a-spherical lenses are employed to correct spherical aberration and coma. The Nano Crystal Coat dramatically reduces ghosting and flare caused by internal reflections. An additional ED glass element minimizes chromatic aberration to deliver higher resolution, high-contrast images. All of these factors contribute to the extremely high image reproduction capability of the AF-S Micro NIKKOR 60mm f/2.8G ED.
The Silent Wave Motor (SWM) built into the lens body realizes fast, quiet autofocus operation and contributes to the compact, lightweight design. Focus modes include M/A (Manual-priority Auto) to enable rapid switching between autofocus and manual focusing with virtually no time lag, even during autofocus operation.
The rounded nine-blade diaphragm opening makes out-of-focus background objects soft, natural-looking and unobtrusive.
Note: Specifications, design, standard accessories, and release schedule may differ by country or area.
