Nikon Introduces New 85mm DX Macro Lens

Nikon AF-S DX MICRO NIKKOR 85MM F/3.5G VR II Macro Lens

Nikon’s new AF-S DX MICRO NIKKOR 85MM F/3.5G VR is a macro lens for its DX format DSLRs utilizing the company’s VR II, or 2nd generation vibration reduction technology. It has a 1:1 reproduction ratio, meaning a 3cm ant will imprint an image exactly 3cm in size on the camera’s sensor.

Nikon says the new VR II lens is designed specifically for extreme close-up photography, yet perfectly suited for portrait, nature, and general imaging as well.

The new 85mm Micro NIKKOR lens, in conjunction with Nikon DX-format digital SLR cameras, renders a picture angle equivalent of approximately 127.5mm (in the 35mm or FX-format).

To retail at about $530, the new lens will be available starting in early December.
