The closest focusing distance with this lens is 11m, and the automatic diaphragm may be stopped down from f/5.6 to f/22. With a built-in telescopic lens hood. As this lens is quite heavy, weighing at 3.6kg with the lens head alone, making handheld photography difficult and would require a sturdy support for shooting. The lens can be used in conjunction with the original Model 1, Model 2 and the subsequent Nikon AU-1 Focusing Unit.
