Flagship NIKKOR lens - Superior optical design and features - Built on a legacy of outstanding optical performance, the AF NIKKOR 85mm f/1.4D IF shines as one of NIKKOR?s flagship lenses. Its A-M switch allows for fast switching between AF and manual focusing modes. Nikon?s Internal Focusing (IF) technology enables precise focusing without the lens size changing, allowing for more compact, lightweight lens construction and closer minimum focusing distances. The Super Integrated Coating (SIC) prevents lens flare and ghosting, even at wide aperture settings. And the lens? rounded nine-blade diaphragm creates a more attractive, natural background blur effect.
A-M - A-M stands for Auto-Manual Mode. Thanks to a mechanism incorporated in the lens barrel, smooth focusing operation in Manual focus mode is realized in the same way as users have become accustomed to with conventional manual-focus lenses by adding an appropriate torque to the focus ring.
IF Lens - A NIKKOR lens in which only the internal lens group shifts during focusing. These lenses will be designated with the abbreviation IF on the lens barrel.
Super Integrated Coating - Nikon Super Integrated Coating is Nikon's term for its multilayer coating of the optical elements in NIKKOR lenses.
