Exit Pupil Distance for Nikon AF Lenses

Exit pupil positions for Nikon AF lenses (more correctly: lenses with a CPU, which includes some manual focus lenses) taken from the EXIF data. Values are in millimeters. The "Close" column contains the exit pupil position at the shortest focus distance. "N/A" means that the lens does not transmit distance information, "same" means that the position is identical to the value at infinity, and "no data" means that I only have infinity data for that lens.

For lenses focused by extension, the close value will always be larger than the infinity value. If it is smaller, the lens probably uses internal focusing and shortens its focal length for closer subjects.

The values are somewhat granular since Nikon uses only one byte for storage. The only possible values are of the form 2048∕n, where n is an integer from 1 to 255. For example, here are the values between 100 and 150mm, rounded to one place: 102.4, 107.8, 113.8, 120.5, 128, 136.5, 146.3.

Values for non-CPU lenses are in this table.
