A macro telephoto designed for DX, the Nikon AF-S DX Micro NIKKOR 85mm f/3.5G ED VR is a 127.5mm-equivalent prime optimized for close-up shooting. Offering a life-size 1:1 maximum magnification and an 11.3" minimum focusing distance, this lens is especially adept for working with nearby subjects. Its optical design includes one extra-low dispersion element, which minimizes chromatic aberrations in order to achieve high clarity and color accuracy. A Super Integrated Coating is also used to suppress flare and ghosting for greater contrast when working in bright and backlit conditions. The 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 II (Vibration Reduction) image stabilization compensates for the effects of camera shake by up to three shutter speed steps.

85mm micro nikon
great sharp photos great lens 5 stars
At first I thought it would be just another great lens from Nikon but upon taking and seeing the first photos I have to say that it has quickly become my favorite lens. Everything about it makes my macro photography so much easier yet still has the ability to capture larger format images without sacrifice, or having to switch lenses. Thanks Nikon for another great one.
Excellent macro lens.
Great macro lens. Sharp picture and quick auto focus. Super image quality. Use o Nikon D500.
Perfect for Dental Photography
I have been using the 105mm f.28 FX lens for years for dental photography.� It's an excellent lens, but the latest VR version is HEAVY.� I decided to give the 85mm DX version a try, and I'm delighted.� It's significantly lighter which makes holding the camera one-handed (while using the other hand for the reflective mirror) much easier.� I don't notice any drop-off in sharpness or contrast. I couldn't be happier with this lens.
Great Macro and portrait lens!
Super sharp, easy to use lens. Themanual focus overide is a handy tool. Light weight and compact. My new walk around lens!
What a fun lens this is, clear close-up shots and easy to use. I'd recommend this lens to anyone wanting to do macro shots.
