This lens provides continuous autofocus from infinity to life-size (1:1 reproduction ratio). Exclusive Nikon Silent Wave Motor (SWM) enables accurate, high-speed and quiet autofocus operation. Two aspherical elements virtually eliminate coma and other types of lens aberration even at the widest aperture. ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass element offer superior sharpness and color correction by effectively minimizing chromatic aberration. Internal Focusing (IF) design allows faster, smoother autofocusing and eliminates barrel length changes for consistent handling—design also eliminates front element rotation, enabling easier use of polarizers and Nikon's Wireless Close-Up Speedlight System. Nikon's Nano Crystal Coat virtually eliminates internal reflections across a wide range of wavelengths for even greater image integrity. Super Integrated Coating (SIC) delivers superior color performance, while substantially reducing ghosting and flare. Optimized for edge-to-edge sharpness on both the Nikon FX-format (23.9 x 36mm) and DX-format image sensors. Rounded 9-blade diaphragm for more natural appearance of out-of-focus image elements. M/A Focus Mode allows fast, smooth transitions, autofocus to manual operation.
