Macro lenses require a high imaging performance for photographing objects with digital SLR cameras. The new advanced lens design corrects various aberrations. This macro lens is specially coated to get the best color balance whilst cutting down ghost caused by reflections from the digital image sensor. This lens provides the utmost correction against lateral chromatic aberration which is a serious problem for digital SLR cameras
Although the depth of field this medium telephoto is shallow, sometimes would be necessary to have greater depth of field, because it is difficult to take a sharp picture of a subject and the background at the maximum aperture. Minimum aperture of F45 (F45 for Sigma, Canon and Konica Minolta mounts) or F32 (F32 for Nikon and Pentax mounts) provides greater depth of field.
A screw-in hood is included, for convenient use of circular polarizing filters.
Please Note: This lens is designed for Nikon AF Lens Mount.
