Fo­cus ring

The over­sized fo­cus ring op­er­ates smoothly and with great pre­ci­sion, for man­ual fo­cus­ing. With an IF (In­ter­nal Fo­cus) de­sign, the lens doesn’t phys­i­cally ex­tend at shorter fo­cus dis­tances.

Tri­pod mount­ing col­lar

It’s quite a weighty lens at just over a kilo­gram, and is sup­plied with a tri­pod mount­ing col­lar. This en­ables a bet­ter bal­ance for tri­pod-mounted shoot­ing.

Aper­ture ring

As a D-se­ries lens, it has a man­ual aper­ture ring but this is largely su­per­flu­ous on Nikon’s dig­i­tal SLRs. It locks in place for ap­ply­ing cam­era-con­trolled aper­ture set­tings.
