Highlight Tech: AF DC-Nikkor 135mm f/2D with Defocus Image Control
We just got in a cool lens from Nikon, a 135mm f/2. The killer feature is Nikon’s exclusive Defocus Image Control technology, a second control ring which allows you to emphasize the degree of spherical aberration in front of or behind the plane of focus. The lens is extremely fast f/2.0 and has nine aperture blades for pleasing bokeh.
It has a built in and super compact, metal, retractable lens hood, which you simply pull out to extend. It has a nice grippy surface and a substantial feeling in the hands, which sets it apart from the normal plasticky lens hoods that so often degrades the look and feel of an otherwise substantial lens.
Needless to say, I can’t wait to take this lens out for a test drive.
