Nikkor AF-S 60mm f/2.8 G ED MICRO Prime Lens


Nikkor AF-S 60mm f/2.8 G ED MICRO prime lens encompasses an excellent focal length to work as a portrait lens apart from its obvious abilities as a micro lens where it offers life size reproduction (1:1). SWM (Silent Wave Motor) ensures that the lens is quiet during focusing and M/A (Full time Manual focusing) allows precise focusing control by manual focus override. Additionally the presence of Nano Crystal coating, ED (Extra-Low Dispersion) and AS (Aspherical Elements) ensures that spherical and chromatic aberrations are suppressed.

The AF-S Micro NIKKOR 60mm f/2.8G ED combines legendary Micro NIKKOR optics and advanced Nikon lens technologies for stunningly sharp close-up and macro images up to life-size (1:1 reproduction ratio). It produces beautiful bokeh (background blur) at its wider aperture settings, and with its wide focusing range, the AF-S Micro NIKKOR 60mm f/2.8G ED is not limited to extreme close-up photography—achieve great results with nearly any subject.

Fast f/2.8 aperture and versatile focal length

Thanks to a broad focusing range and a wide f/2.8 maximum aperture, the AF-S Micro NIKKOR 60mm f/2.8G ED can be used for more than just close-up shooting.

Nikon’s exclusive Silent Wave Motor (SWM) enables ultra-fast, ultra-quiet autofocusing performance with seamless manual focus override for increased versatility.

M/A

Select NIKKOR lenses have a focusing mode which allows switching from automatic to manual focusing with virtually no lag time by simply turning the focusing ring on the lens.
