Eye-Detection AF

  • Continuously tracks eyes, even when subjects move within the frame
  • Works in AF-S and AF-C focus modes
  • Intelligently recognizes the eyes of multiple people in the frame, giving you the freedom to choose which person and eye to focus on
  • Remains locked on the eyes even when face is partially or temporarily obstructed
  • Built on a legacy of Nikon autofocus and facial recognition innovations

Even Better AF Performance in Low Light

  • Faster, more accurate focusing indoors and for night portraits
  • Reduces the need to switch to Low-Light AF mode to acquire focus
