The Nikon 105mm f/2D AF DC

An extremely sharp prime lens with Nikon’s Defocus Control, allowing you to smooth the appearance of out-of-focus areas and create a variety of artistic effects. Most commonly, this feature is used to increase blurring of either the foreground or the background of the shot, or slightly smooth and blur the subject, as is often done in portraiture.

Roger's Take

The Defocus Control lenses let you accentuate either background or foreground blur by dialing a simple ring on the lens. People asked me how it worked, so I spent a day reading up on the optical physics and I can explain it to you simply: it’s magic. But it’s very cool magic that gives amazing portraits with a 3D effect. Well, it does that after a while. It takes a bit of practice to get things where you want them, but after a half-hour of chimping the LCD, you’ll be good to go. And truly, you’ll get some shots that other photographers will go “what did you shoot that with?”

If you don't see exactly what you're looking for and that makes you sad, please give us a shout. We might have good news for you. Here's a link to our contact form.

We offer a 3-day inspection period on all sales, during which time you may return the item for a refund of the purchase price, not including shipping.

On this item, we include a LensAuthority 90-day limited warranty. This warranty covers damage that arises from normal use of the item. It does NOT cover accidental or intentional damage. More details are available in our FAQ section.

In addition to the standard 90-day warranty, you may have the option to purchase an extended warranty. If we're able to offer an extended warranty on this item, you'll see a checkbox to add that warranty - see the area just above the "Add to Cart" button.

If you select the extended warranty, you'll get additional protection from Consumer Priority Service ("CPS"). The CPS warranty will take effect after our 90-day warranty ends. However, the CPS warranty term would begin on the date of purchase. For example, if you buy an item with a 2-year extended warranty today, your coverage would end two years from today.
