Powerful telephoto macro lens for maximum working distance.
The extra-long 200mm focal length of the AF Micro-NIKKOR 200mm f/4D IF-ED provides maximum working distance between you and your subject, ideal for shooting flowers, insects and other tiny wildlife at a distance that won’t disturb them. Internal Focusing (IF) allows the lens to focus without changing size, another major plus for close-up shooting. Create stunning 1:1 reproduction ratio images with ease.
Details from a distance
Telephoto reach for greater versatility
With a 1.6 ft. (0.5 m) working distance, the AF Micro NIKKOR 200mm f/4D IF-ED lets you create remarkable life-size (1:1 reproduction ratio) images of insects, flowers and other wildlife without disturbing them. Extra-low Dispersion (ED) glass ensures high contrast and tack-sharp images.
Superior Micro NIKKOR optics
Truly outstanding close-up performance
Legendary in the world of close-up photography, Micro NIKKOR lenses deliver superior life-size images of striking clarity without additional accessories. The AF Micro NIKKOR 200mm f/4D IF-ED is no exception. It combines that rich legacy of NIKKOR optics with advanced Nikon lens technologies to empower your D-SLR to peak performance in close-up applications.
ED (Extra-Low Dispersion) Glass
An optical glass developed by Nikon that is used with normal optical glass in telephoto lenses to obtain optimum correction of chromatic aberrations.
A-M stands for Auto-Manual Mode. Thanks to a mechanism incorporated in the lens barrel, smooth focusing operation in Manual focus mode is realized in the same way as users have become accustomed to with conventional manual-focus lenses by adding an appropriate torque to the focus ring.
A NIKKOR lens in which only the internal lens group shifts during focusing. These lenses will be designated with the abbreviation IF on the lens barrel.
CRC (Close Range Correction) System
The Close-Range Correction (CRC) system is one of Nikon's most important focusing innovations, for it provides superior picture quality at close focusing distances and increases the focusing range.
