Well-handling, with silent AF and well-damped manual focus, the lens is optically strong with Imperceptible barrel distortion and no light falloff at close focus. Maximum subject magnification: 1:1.
The latest version of Nikon's legendary close-focusing 1:1 "normal" macro (the first was the 55mm f/3.5 of 1961), this full-frame lens ($490, street) incorporates aspheric and ED glass elements, with Nikon's Nano crystal coating, indicated by the gold "N" logo, for suppressing internal flare and reflections. Internally focusing, with a non-rotating front element, it's suited to Nikon's lensmounted, wireless macro flash system.
