The Nikon AF-S VR Micro-Nikkor 105mm f/2.8G IF-ED Lensbrings the benefits of vibration reduction (VR) to the domain of Macro photography. This lens will produce images up to a 1:1 (life-size) ratio of magnification. Any camera movement at this magnification is also magnified, so image stabilization is critical. This lens offers high-resolution, high-optical performance for both digital and 35mm film format SLR cameras. When used with cameras with an APS-C size sensor, the equivalent focal length is 157.5mm.
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. This in effect eliminates image blur caused by camera shake, particularly when shooting in low-light conditions.
An ED glass element minimizes chromatic aberration. Nano Crystal Coat drastically reduces flare ensuring finely detailed, clear images.

This lens can produce images at up to 1:1 magnification (life-size)
Internal Focusing (IF) design for smoother focusing and better body balance
Built-in M/A switch enables instant switching from autofocus to manual focus
Silent Wave Motor for ultra-fast, ultra-quiet AF
The rounded diaphragm (9 blades) makes out-of-focus elements appear more natural
