The 180 also does UV. This is a little unexpected for a fairly modern lens with advanced coatings, but I for one won't complain :D Of course the UV response is not in the UV-Nikkor league but then most lenses cannot match that legend anyway.

A French Nymphea alba (coll) flower graces the sun. Nikon D40X with built-in Baader U (Venus) filter.

Bummer I sold mine, should have tested it for UV.... oh well, one cannot have it all ;-)
