The Nikon AF NIKKOR 180mm f/2.8D IF-ED is a high-end digital SLR lens. The IF (Internal Focus) line of lenses are able to focus without changing size, allowing for a compact design and close focusing distance. Nikon promotes the AF NIKKOR 180mm f/2.8D IF-ED as a high-performance lens ideal for capturing sports action and portraits. The internal focus of this lens allows for a fast AF (Auto Focus) performance, though manual focus is still available. This lens contains one ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass element, which ensures crisp images, even if you are at the maximum aperture (2.8). A hallmark of the Nikon telephoto lenses, the AF NIKKOR 180mm f/2.8D IF-ED comes with super integrated coating, which cuts down on ghosting and flare. The Nikon AF NIKKOR 180mm IF-ED lens comes with 72mm snap-on lens cap, LF-1 rear lens cap and CL-38 flexible lens pouch.
