The AF-S DX Micro Nikkor 85mm F3.5G VR is a short telephoto macro lens designed exclusively for use with Nikon's DX (APS-C) format DSLRs. It features an AF-S motor for fast silent autofocus, Nikon's second-generation vibration reduction (VR II) system, and a circular diaphragm for attractive background blur. This lens gives 1:1 magnification at a minimum focus distance of 28cm. The 85mm focal length (equivalent to 128mm on full frame) also gives a flattering perspective for portraits. The optical design uses 14 elements in 10 groups with one ED element, and the internal focus design means the front element does not rotate on focusing, enabling the use of lens-mounted macro lights.
