The AF DC-NIKKOR 105mm f/2D Lens from Nikon is an FX format telephoto prime lens effective for portraiture and other medium telephoto applications. Its fast f/2 maximum aperture allows sharp imaging in low light and shallow depth of field control. Furthermore, its unique Defocus Image Control ring creates smooth and subtle out-of-focus areas in either the foreground or background of your image. A rounded diaphragm also adds to more natural looking out-of-focus areas and a manual aperture control ring is supported.
With a rear focus system, only the lens' rear elements move during focus for faster AF performance and an M-A mode ring switches between manual and auto focus modes. A built-in lens hood is provided to deflect unwanted light.
Autofocus is not supported by D40, D40x, D60, D3000, D3100, D3200, D3300, D5000, D5100, D5200, D5300 cameras--lens may be used with manual focus only. Be sure to check your camera's lens-compatibility information before selecting a new lens.
