Description

Ideal for close range, the Micro-NIKKOR 55mm f/2.8 from Nikon is a versatile normal-length prime well-suited for a range of subjects, including anything from portraiture to product photography. The manual focus design permits working with subjects as close as 9.8" away with a high 1:2 maximum magnification. The optical design uses a Close Range Correction system, which maintains consistent image quality and sharpness from the minimum focusing distance to infinity. Additionally, a bright f/2.8 maximum aperture benefits working in a variety of lighting conditions and enables working with shallow depth of field and selective focus techniques.
