    Key Features

    Creative compositions
    Exclusive Defocus Image Control feature

    Using the same unique Defocus Image Control (DC) feature employed in the AF DC-NIKKOR 105mm f/2D, the AF DC-NIKKOR 135mm f/2D offers more telephoto reach. Selectively blur elements in either the foreground or background for more creative control—make your subject stand out from the background, softly defocus foreground elements and more.
    Stunning portraits and more
    f/2 medium-telephoto performance

    With a medium-telephoto 135mm angle-of-view and a fast f/2 maximum aperture, the AF DC-NIKKOR 135mm f/2D is an ideal portrait lens. Its fast maximum aperture delivers beautiful natural background blur (bokeh) and enables dramatic low-light shooting. And since it’s a NIKKOR, you can expect consistently stunning images in nearly any setting.


    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.
    Rear Focusing

    Rear Focusing System

    A system in which only the rear lens group moves during focusing, thus eliminating changes in the physical length of the lens during focusing and enabling faster focusing. Such lenses are designated with RF on the lens barrel.
