So whether you're interested in capturing the beauty of nature’s most elusive phenomenons or the exciting fast-pace of a sporting event, bring the action closer in exquisite detail and clarity.

Built for exacting images. Extra-low Dispersion (ED) glass.

Remarkably compact and easy to handle for such a fast medium telephoto, the AF NIKKOR 180mm f/2.8D IF-ED incorporates Nikon’s renowned Extra-low Dispersion (ED) glass to compensate for chromatic aberration and deliver crisp, high-contrast clear images, even at the maximum aperture of f/2.8. Expect brilliant images every time.

ED (Extra-Low Dispersion) Glass

An optical glass developed by Nikon that is used with normal optical glass in telephoto lenses to obtain optimum correction of chromatic aberrations.

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.
