Nikon AF-S VR Micro 105mm lens
Nikon Corporation has launched the AF-S VR Micro-Nikkor 105mm f/2.8G IF-ED, the world's first macro lens equipped with Nikon Silent Wave Motor (SWM) and Vibration Reduction (VR) systems. The new Nikon AF-S VR Micro 105mm f/2.8G IF ED lens offers a host of Nikon's advanced optical features and technologies such as Nano Crystal Coat, Extra Low Dispersion (ED) glass and Internal Focusing (IF) . The AF-S VR Micro-Nikkor 105mm f/2.8G IF-ED is engineered for use with both Nikon DX format digital and 35mm film SLR cameras. Importantly, the Nikon AF-S VR Micro 105mm lens has been specifically developed to meet user demand for a 105mm macro lens equipped with SWM, IF and VR features.

Nikon 105mm VR Micro - Coating - The SWM ensures fast and quiet auto-focusing and the ability to switch rapidly between autofocus and manual operation. The IF system offers a non-rotating front lens element that makes it easy to fit and use circular polarising filters. The AF-S VR Micro-Nikkor 105mm f/2.8G IF-ED also features proven Nikon optical technologies such as the Nano Crystal Coat, which drastically reduces flare, and one ED glass element that minimises chromatic aberration to provide higher resolution and high-contrast images.
Nikon AF-S VR Micro 105mm - Vibration reduction - With the enhanced VR system (VRII), photographers can capture sharp images at shutter speeds approximately 4 stops slower [at near infinity to 3m (1/30x reproduction ratio)] than would otherwise be possible. The negative effects of camera shake are greatly amplified in close-up photography and can affect image sharpness greatly. The incorporation of Nikon VR technology in a Micro-Nikkor lens for the first time expands versatility by providing the benefits of VR-assisted sharpness and improving hand-held close-up photography. In addition, the VRII offers a stable viewfinder image for easy frame composition even at high magnification shooting.
