Best in Class

  • Excerpt: I've used various macro lenses over the years including the Nikon 105mm and the Sigma 180mm. I was always hesitant to invest in this lens as it is an "old" design without some of the new bells and whistles that more recent Nikon lenses have.
  • Pros: Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Rugged, Strong Construction

Amazing sharpness, great bokeh at macro distances

  • Excerpt: Nikon calls its macro-capable lenses "micro". I bought this lens for macro work and it does that very well but I will probably use it for much more than that. I've been very plesantly surprised to find it's a good all around lens. In fact you won't find a better 200mm lens.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction

One of the best Nikon lenses ever

  • Excerpt: I bought this lens way back when it first came out and just purchased a second to replace the first after 20-plus years of heavy use. The technology is old but the optics are second-to-none. Auto focus and VR are irrelevant in macro photography as this lens performs at its best when tripod-mounted.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction

  • Excerpt: Anyone looking at the reviews for this lens is most likely trying to verify what they already know: that it is a fantastic lens. My 2 cents confirm that. The lens is optically superb, and it has not been challenged by a 24 Mp DX sensor.

  • Excerpt: The Nikkor 200mm f/4 Micro Lens is the standard for quality macro photography. Its construction is excellent and its optics are superb. Its focal length of 200mm is perfect for most wildlife closeup photography when an external flash is used.

  • Excerpt: This lens is a dream to use; it has so much working distance compared to the shorter focal-length cousins that it vastly eases your taking pictures of mobile subjects. Mine is coupled with a D610, and the combination allows me to get shots I could not get before because the subjects (bees,...

  • Excerpt: I own 55 and 105 macro so i was hesitate to get this one. It turned out really sharp and I can really see it's sharper that the other macro lens. I used this for product shooting and the distance make it really nice in term of perspective and depth of the field. The building quality is 1st class.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Slow Focus
