Nikon AF-S DX Micro NIKKOR 85mm f/3.5G ED VR Overview

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.

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.

Telephoto prime is designed for DX-format Nikon F-mount cameras and provides a 127.5mm equivalent focal length.
Ideal for macro shooting, this lens offers a life-size 1:1 maximum magnification along with a minimum focusing distance of 11.3" 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.
A Super Integrated Coating has 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 II (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.

question

Quick question. This lens is a DX formatted lens, so it will be a true 85mm focal length on a DX camera correct? It will not give a 127mm cropped image. I think the 127mm will be for FX sensors only. Perhaps thats what 127.5mm (35mm Equivalent) means but I am not sure,
Asked by: Tim D.
An 85mm lens is always an 85mm lens in focal length. When used on a DX camera, it will have the field of view of a 127mm lens. The depth of field will behave like an 85mm lens. Focal length is always reported as the physical focal length. The field of view of the lens will depend on the effective sensor size.

Is this a better len for taking close-up photos ...

Is this a better len for taking close-up photos of food dishes over the Af-s dx micro nikkor 85mm f3.5g vr?
Asked by: Lillian T.
All the Nikon macro lenses are very good for food shots, it depends if you have a cropped sensor camera or full frame and how wide a shot you want. The 60mm macro or 40mm macro may be better if you want more in the shot. But all in all, they are all very good.

All but the 10-24mm lens will work full frame on the Nikon D750. The 10-24mm lens is a DX lens and will need to be used in DX Crop mode.
