Design and Features
The lens barrel is large, heavy, made of metal. The lens mount is metallic.
The lens features A - M focus mode switch.
|A||Autofocus mode without manual override.|
|M||Manual focus mode.|
The lens uses front filters with standard size of 62 mm which are easy to find. They are also inexpensive.
The filter thread does not rotate during focusing which allows convenient use of different types of filters (including but not limited to polarizing and gradient).
- The autofocus will not be available with Nikon D40, D40X, D60, D3000-D3400, D5000-D5600 SLR cameras.
Low dispersion elements (AD, ED, LD, HLD, SD, UD etc) and fluorite elements minimize chromatic aberrations and ensure excellent sharpness and contrast even at maximum aperture.
The lens incorporates a floating system that provides correction of aberrations and ensures constantly high image quality at the entire range of focusing distances from infinity down to the closest focusing distance. Learn more
