BH #NI10528GAF • MFR #2160
Nikon AF-S VR Micro-NIKKOR 105mm f/2.8G IF-ED Lens
Key Features
  • F-Mount Lens/FX Format
  • Aperture Range: f/2.8 to f/32
  • One Extra-Low Dispersion Element
  • Nano Crystal & Super Integrated Coatings
A contemporary take on the classic short telephoto macro lens, the Nikon AF-S VR Micro-NIKKOR 105mm f/2.8G IF-ED excels at close range with its life-size 1:1 maximum magnification and a minimum focusing distance of 1'. Contributing to its success is an advanced optical design that includes one extra-low dispersion element, which minimizes chromatic aberrations in order to achieve high clarity and color accuracy. Both Nano Crystal and Super Integrated Coatings are also used to suppress flare and ghosting for greater contrast when working in bright and backlit conditions. A Silent Wave Motor AF system produces fast, near-silent focusing performance that suits both stills shooting and movie recording, which can instantly be manually overridden by simply turning the manual focus ring. Further contributing to producing sharp imagery, VR (Vibration Reduction) image stabilization compensates for the effects of camera shake by up to three shutter speed steps.

Nikon AF-S Micro NIKKOR 105mm f/2.8G IF-ED VR Overview

A contemporary take on the classic short telephoto macro lens, the Nikon AF-S VR Micro-NIKKOR 105mm f/2.8G IF-ED excels at close range with its life-size 1:1 maximum magnification and a minimum focusing distance of 1'. Contributing to its success is an advanced optical design that includes one extra-low dispersion element, which minimizes chromatic aberrations in order to achieve high clarity and color accuracy.

Further contributing to producing sharp imagery, VR (Vibration Reduction) image stabilization compensates for the effects of camera shake by up to three shutter speed steps.

Telephoto prime is designed for FX-format Nikon F-mount cameras, however can also be used with DX models where it provides a 157.5mm equivalent focal length.
Bright f/2.8 maximum aperture suits working in a variety of lighting conditions and also offers increased control over depth of field for isolating subjects and using selective focus techniques.
Ideal for macro shooting, this lens offers a life-size 1:1 maximum magnification along with a minimum focusing distance of 1' to suit working with close-up subjects.
One extra-low dispersion element greatly reduces color fringing and chromatic aberrations in order to produce greater clarity and color accuracy.
Both a Nano Crystal Coat and a Super Integrated Coating have been applied to individual elements to suppress internal reflections, flare, and ghosting for improved contrast and color accuracy when working in strong lighting conditions.
Silent Wave Motor affords quick, quiet, and precise autofocus performance along with full-time manual focus override. An internal focusing design is also used, where only the internal lens groups are moved during focusing, to maintain the overall length of the lens during use and to promote faster focusing speeds.
VR (Vibration Reduction) image stabilization helps to minimize the appearance of camera shake by three stops to benefit shooting handheld in difficult lighting conditions.
Rounded nine-blade diaphragm promotes a pleasing out of focus quality that benefits the use of shallow depth of field and selective focus techniques.
Compatible with optional AF-S Teleconverter TC-14, TC-17, and TC-20 teleconverters.

My old 105 f2.8 D would not allow f2.8 aperture ...

My old 105 f2.8 D would not allow f2.8 aperture at very close focus distances. As focus distance goes down the max f stop increases. This occurs in auto focus and manual. Is this an issue with the new F/2.8G IF-ED VR lens?
Asked by: Darrel
It is normal for this lens and other Micro-Nikkor lenses to reduce the maximum aperture when focusing at very close distances, in order to account for the loss of light that may occur.

question

Is this a Grey Market Import?
Asked by: Anonymous
To clarify for all those reading this questions and answers in 2021. B&H has combined the questions and reviews for the US and Imported models, i.e., the same questions and reviews are attached to both products. This is standard operating mode in the modern online market. It is fine when someone asks about a feature such as "what version is the VR?". It sucks when someone asks "Is this Grey Market?". As the staff answer says, B&H labels each version clearly and explicitly. But note well, it's up to you to hunt out those labels.
