A short telephoto lens, ideal for portraiture. The silent wave motor ensures focus is achieved quickly and quietly, whilst full time manual focusing and fast maximum aperture for precise control of depth of field make this a powerful tool for portrait shooting.

The AF-S VR 105mm f2.8 G IF-ED brings the benefits of vibration reduction (VR) to the domain of Macro photography. It offers high-resolution, high-optical performance for both digital and 35mm film format SLR cameras. This lens incorporates Nikon’s second-generation vibration reduction system (VR II) that allows flexible hand-held shooting by stabilizing the image to the equivalent stability of a shutter speed that is 4 stops faster when compared with a conventional lens (as determined by Nikon performance test). The SWM (Silent Wave Motor) and IF (Internal Focusing) ensure quiet autofocusing with quick and convenient switching between autofocus and manual operation. Optical performance is enhanced by an ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass element that minimizes chromatic aberration, and Nano Crystal Coat which drastically reduces flare, enabling finely defined, clear images.

•VR II function offers the equivalent stability of a shutter speed that is 4 stops faster.
•SWM (Silent Wave Motor) enables quiet autofocusing with quick and convenient switching between autofocus and manual operation.
