  • Excerpt: While I hope to create a full Nikon 105mm f/2.8G AF-S VR Micro Lens evaluation, my first priority is to include results from this lens in the lens comparison tools. This page currently exists because it is required by the database and content management systems for the posting of those standard test results.

  • Excerpt: Not only is it a large optic, it works out at 120g heavier than Canon's 100mm macro, weighing in at a mighty 720g. It's unique in that it's the only lens to incorporate optical image stabilisation with Nikon's Vibration Reduction (VR II) function offering the equivalent stability of a shutter speed that's four stops faster.

AF-S Micro 105 mm f/2.8G IF-ED VR

7 October 2007
  • Conclusion: What can be written in the summary? Nikkor 2.8/105 VR is undoubtedly a very fine instrument, which will enable us taking very sharp photos. The problem (problem for Nikon, not to its customers) is that there is a great competition in the class of macro lenses of focal length 100 mm. In relation to its competitors Nikkor may boast itself with a great advantage, which is stabilization.
  • Cons: some problems at work against bright light, prohibitive price

Nikon 105mm f/2.8G AF-S VR Micro-Nikkor

12 August 2014
  • Excerpt: Мои любимые объективы относятся к категории макро. Самое удивительно в том, что непосредственно макро я снимаю довольно редко. Меня всегда подкупала невероятно маленькая глубина резкости при съемке с небольших дистанций, полное отсутствие искажений и аккуратная проработка деталей в портретах при правильном выборе освещения. Здесь решения лучше макрообъектива с его уникальными особенностями зачастую просто не найти.
  • Pros: надежная конструкция;, высочайшая разрешающая способность;, хорошая защита от бликов;, быстрый для макрообъектива автофокус;, лимитер дистанций фокусировки;, эффективныйстабилизатор.
  • Cons: “плавающее” значение максимальной диафрагмы.

Nikon 105 mm macro

20 June 2007
  • Summary: As clearly shown in the above tables, the Nikon 105mm macro scores - particularly in terms of resolution - better using a Nikon D800E compared to  a Nikon D700, which - given the large difference in megapixels-  is not surprising. But thanks to in-camera correction of chromatic aberration and vignetting in jpg files, this lens also scores better for these parameters using a Nikon D800E .
