Nikon 105mm f/2D AF DC

Available Today

An extremely sharp prime lens with Nikon’s Defocus Control, allowing you to smooth the appearance of out-of-focus areas and create a variety of artistic effects. Most commonly, this feature is used to increase blurring of either the foreground or the background of the shot, or slightly smooth and blur the subject, as is often used in portrature.

Please note: This lens does not have a built-in autofocus motor. Therefore, it is not fully compatible with Nikon DSLRs such as the Nikon D40, D50, D3100, D5100, etc.

OK, these are out of production but they’re so unique that we broke our typical “two year sales” rule to keep them in stock as long as we can get copies. The Defocus control lenses let you accentuate either background or foreground blur and bokeh by dialing a simple ring on the lens. People asked me how it worked, so I spent a day reading up on the optical physics and I can explain it to you simply: it’s magic. But it’s very cool magic that gives amazing portraits with a 3D effect. Well, it does that after a while. It takes a bit of practice to get things where you want them, but after a half-hours chimping the LCD you’ll be good to go. And truly, you’ll get some shots that other photographers will go “what did you shoot that with?”.
