Design and Features
The lens barrel is of moderate weight, made of plastic. The lens mount is metallic.
The lens supports Macro mode. The closest focusing distance in macro mode is reduced down to 21 cm, the magnification ratio is 1:2 at 85 mm focal length and the autofocusing is possible.
The lens lacks focusing mode switch, therefore you have to set the automatic or manual focus mode from the camera. Full-Time Manual Focus is not available.
The lens uses front filters with standard size of 72 mm which are easy to find. However, filters of such size are more expensive and mainly used with professional lenses.
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 focusing ring rotates during autofocus which looks pretty anachronistic by today's standards. It is strongly recommended not to touch the ring or manually stop its movement because it might result in damage to the lens and/or camera.
- The autofocus will not be available with Nikon D40, D40X, D60, D3000-D3400, D5000-D5600 SLR cameras.
