Product Info

Versatile long-reach macro lens with VR image stabilization.

When greater working distance is needed for close-up and macro shooting, the AF-S Micro NIKKOR 105mm f/2.8 delivers 105mm of reach, exceptional image quality, a fast f/2.8 maximum aperture and 1:1 reproduction ratio. Featuring advanced Nikon lens technologies like Silent Wave Motor (SWM) and Vibration Reduction (VR) image stabilization, it’s optimized for close-up and macro photography yet versatile enough for all photographic situations—even handheld shooting!


  • Vibration Reduction (VR) technology helps compensate for camera shake to help ensure sharper pictures in low light and at shutter speeds up to three stops slower, this technology advances the opportunity to extend hand-held telephoto photography into lower light level conditions
  • Nikon's exclusive SWM (Silent Wave Motor) combines fast and precise autofocusing operation with super-quiet operation
  • Exceptionally high optical performance, compatible with both 35mm and digital SLR models
  • Focus Mode switch on the side of the lens enables quick response
  • AF operation switch enables easy selection of settings
  • Focus Limiter switch limits AF-servo movement to a selected shooting distance range
  • Lens mount fitted with rubber ring that is resistant to dust and drops of water

NOTE: Due to optical characteristics of IF (Internal Focusing) lenses, the shooting distance becomes shorter as the focal length shortens.
