Boxed, comes with hood. Professional medium telephoto lens with a fast f/1.4 aperture for use with Nikon’s FX-format SLRs. A new incarnation of a legendary NIKKOR, the re-designed optical construction offers outstanding performance. Nikon’s Nano Crystal coat greatly reduces ghosting and flare, and the 9-blade rounded aperture produces soft and pleasing blur characteristics. An outstanding portrait or studio lens.
