Pairing two versatile primes for DX shooters, along with a wealth of photography education, the Macro & Portrait Two Lens Kit from Nikon includes the AF-S DX Micro NIKKOR 85mm f/3.5G ED VR lens, the AF-S DX NIKKOR 35mm f/1.8G lens, Macro and Portrait Photography Guides, and access to an online class from Craftsy.com. This bundle provides you with a pair of tools that are ideal for taking close-up and portrait photographs, as well as a series of learning tools to refine your skills.

The AF-S DX Micro NIKKOR 85mm f/3.5G ED VR is a DX-format lens offering a 127.5mm equivalent focal length. A maximum 1:1, life-size reproduction ratio combines with a minimum focusing distance of 11.25" for recording detailed close-ups of small objects, as well as general subjects with its mid-telephoto perspective. Vibration Reduction II image stabilization compensates for three stops of camera shake for sharper handheld shooting and a Silent Wave Motor contributes to fast, smooth, and quiet focusing performance. The optical design incorporates one extra-low dispersion element to minimize chromatic aberrations and a Super Integrated Coating reduces flare and ghosting.

Complementing the macro lens is the AF-S DX NIKKOR 35mm f/1.8 lens, which provides a slightly-longer-than-normal 52.5mm equivalent focal length. This perspective, coupled with the bright f/1.8 maximum aperture, is ideal for isolating subjects using selective focusing techniques, and the Silent Wave Motor offers precise AF performance along with full-time manual focus override for fine-tuning your focus position. One aspherical element is used to control aberrations and distortions, and a Super Integrated Coating is featured again to minimize ghosting and lens flare.

Helping to make the most out the two included lenses are a pair of educational booklets: the Nikon Macro Photography Guide and the Nikon Portrait Photography Guide. Each publication offers a series of exercises to help hone your skill-set and offers useful insight and tips for improving your close-up and portrait craft. Additionally, rounding out the kit is access to the online class "Get to Know Your Lenses: Portrait, Macro & More" from Craftsy.com. Led by professional photographer, Layne Kennedy, this course covers the basics of both macro and portrait shooting and utilizes Craftsy's unique online platform that allows you to easily follow along, take notes, and interact with Layne and other students to get the most out of your education.

  • AF-S DX Micro NIKKOR 85mm f/3.5G ED VR Lens

    This AF-S DX Micro NIKKOR 85mm f/3.5G ED VR Lens from Nikon is a DX-formatted medium telephoto macro lens capable of extreme close-up and general telephoto photography, including portraiture. The lens will autofocus from infinity to 11.3", producing life-size (1:1) macro images. As a DX format lens, it compatible with DX format DSLRs or FX format cameras in DX mode. Its 35mm focal length equivalence is 127.5mm.

    The lens also features Nikon's VR II (Vibration Reduction) image stabilization, which allows handheld shooting at up to 3 shutter speeds slower than would otherwise be possible, assuring dramatically sharper images. This is ideal for macro close-up work as well as for enabling sharp telephoto work in low light. Nikon's Silent Wave Motor autofocus technology enables fast, smooth and near silent AF action which is supported even when shooting macro and very important in video mode. The internal focus system also promotes faster focus and maintains a compact form without an extending or rotating front element. Finally, the M/A focusing mode enables fast focus mode switches and manual focus override. 

    This versatile prime lens includes one extra-low dispersion element to control chromatic aberrations and Nikon's Super Integrated lens coating enhances light transmission reducing flare and ghosting.

  • AF-S DX NIKKOR 35mm f/1.8G Lens

    The Nikon AF-S DX NIKKOR 35mm f/1.8G Lens is designed for use with DX-format cameras and will provide a "normal" 52.5mm equivalent focal length. With an f/1.8 maximum aperture it is useful in low-light conditions and it has one aspherical element to help control distortion and aberrations. Also, it utilizes Nikon's Super Integrated Coating to further minimize flare and ghosting in your images.

    Packing in a Silent Wave Motor AF system with a rear focusing design, the NIKKOR 35mm is able to lock focus quickly and quietly. Also, it has manual focus override for taking control whenever it is desired, and it can focus as close as 11.8" to your subjects. Additionally, it has a 52mm filter diameter and features a 7-blade diaphragm for smooth out-of-focus elements.

    The 35mm focal length closely matches a 50mm lens in the FX format. This is perceived to be a natural lens as it provides an undistorted angle of view that is similar to what the unaided human eye perceives.
    The incorporation of an aspherical element minimizes coma and other lens aberrations, further improving image integrity.
    The Super Integrated Coating (SIC) enhances light transmission efficiency and offers superior color consistency with reduced flare.
    The Silent Wave Motor (SWM) embedded in the body of the lens enables fast, accurate and quiet autofocusing.
    A rounded 7-blade diaphragm produces a more natural rendering of out-of-focus image elements.
