Nikon 85mm F/1.8 Features

  • Exclusive Nikon Silent Wave Motor (SWM): Enables fast, accurate and quiet autofocus
  • Fast f/1.8, compact FX-format prime (fixed focal length) medium telephoto lens: Optimized for FX-format D-SLR cameras but equally at home on any Nikon DX-format D-SLR, featuring SilentWave Motor technology (SWM) and Internal Focusing (IF)
  • Nikon Super Integrated Coating (SIC): To enhance the performance of its optical lens elements, Nikon employs an exclusive multilayer lens coating that helps reduce ghost and flare to a negligible level. Nikon SIC achieves a number of objectives, including minimized reflection in the wider wavelength range and superior color balance and reproduction
  • Internal Focus (IF): Imagine being able to focus a lens without it changing in size. Nikon's IF technology enables just that. All internal optical movement is limited to the interior of the nonextending lens barrel. This allows for a more compact, lightweight construction as well as a closer focusing distance.
  • M/A Focus Mode Switch: AF-S NIKKOR lenses feature Nikon's exclusive M/A mode, that allows switching from autofocus to manual operation with virtually no time lag even during AF servo operation and regardless of AF mode in use.
