Not just for Nikon, Canon can play too.

D. Tyranowski, Amazon
25 October 2014
  • Summary: Not just for Nikon, Canon users can play too with an adapter. Manual focus only- you need very good eyes or a good live view focus screen. No EXIF data. Long minimum focus distance (about 4 feet), unless you use an extension tube (recommended). This lens is incredibly sharp and renders colors nicely. It can do one thing that no other lens can do, and that is alter the out of focus blur. It is NOT a "soft-focus" lens.

Incredible!

Bigblueman92, B&H Photo
3 October 2014
  • Excerpt: This lens is insanely sharp! I've researched this lens online for 2 years. I finally pulled the trigger and purchased it, for a wedding I had to shoot. Plus I wanted to get more into portrait images. I am so thrilled with this lens. The BOKEH is worth it even without the DC. DC is an awesome feature too. But the bokeh is amazing even without the dc. The bokeh is like an artists brush strokes. I am thrilled with this lens and I decided between this and the macro 2.8.

Nikon 105mm f/2D AF DC Nikkor review by Kdavis

Kdavis, slrgear.com
22 August 2014
  • Summary: One of my favorite. I love the focal length, even on my D7000. The defocus control seems pretty subtle, but it makes the lens special and I hope to hang on to this one for a life time. I often wonder how the price will be affected for used copies once the lens is no longer in production. Guess I'll find out soon enough.
  • Pros: Focal Length, build, image quality
  • Cons: One of my favorite. I love the focal length, even on my D7000. The defocus control seems pretty subtle, but it makes the lens special and I hope to hang on to this one for a life time.

Terrible, awful packing and shipping.

Alex, Amazon
15 July 2014
  • Summary: Just received the lens and feel absolutely frustrated. An amazing portrait $1,200 lens made in Japan was placed into brown cardboard box flat and tight against all the box walls except one(!) side of the lens box where some inflated plastic was left. Just imagine how many times that package was pounded during shipping and how it affected the delicate optic glass. Awful, wrong!
