Exploring NIKKOR Lenses: Mongolia – AF-S VR Micro-Nikkor 105mm f/2.8G IF-ED

The art of crafting traditional Mongolian boots dates back to pre-1578. To withstand the harsh climates of Mongolia, the boots are made out of ‘buligar’, a thick unbending leather. These boots are also decorated with intricate leather appliqués, making them unique and distinguished. Using the AF-S VR Micro-Nikkor 105mm f/2.8G IF-ED, professional Nikon photographer Scott A. Woodward and photography enthusiast Chantal Windley were able to photograph fine details of a Mongolian cobbler couple’s craftsmanship.

The AF-S VR Micro-Nikkor 105mm f/2.8G IF-ED is a medium telephoto macro lens that delivers incredibly detailed images. Its maximum reproduction ratio of 1:1 will allow you to capture subjects that are true to life in size. With a maximum aperture of f/2.8, this lens is able to isolate your subject against a beautifully blurred background.

Every movement is exaggerated in macro photography. The lens comes with a built-in Vibration Reduction (VR) system that improves stability caused by camera shake. This lets you achieve stunningly sharp images even when shooting handheld or in low lighting conditions.
