nikon 105mm f/2.8 micro lens

  • Summary: Excellent lens, the macro effects are outstanding, this is what I was looking for in a micro lens. I prefer to use MF on macro photography as it gives me more control of the background.

Speed! It's all about the speed!

  • Summary: This lens is a compromise. I mainly shoot wildlife and a 600mm is an ideal length, but too slow for the type of shooting I do. I opted for 400mm f2.8 as it allows me to shoot fledglings in the nest and other poorly lighted, but protected areas. The same holds true for other skittish, young animals. I prefer to shoot animals in action as opposed to portraits, so speed, not length was the critical criteria in choosing a lens for my kind of work.

Lens 28-70/2.8 as described. Great communication !

photobyalex, Ebay

  • Summary: The 28-70/2.8 lens is probably the most important lens for a photographer. I got it late because I didn't have the money for it. The quality of the pictures (sharpness, color reproduction, etc.) is great! It's a bit heavy but if you 'shoot more than you carry it around' than you'll love it like a diamond.

Earned love - the best kind

hintz1956, Ebay

  • Summary: Well I have to admit that after my initial skepticism about this lens I have grown to love it. On full frame there is no noticeable falloff in the corners even wide open. The bokeh is beautiful and I love shooting zoomed up in low light. The image quality is consistently excellent. The size of this lens is not an issue for me as it feels well balanced on my D700 though a little front-heavy on my Fm3a.

Above Expectaions

  • Summary: If you think you would list "heavy" and "too expensive" as cons to describe this lens, reconsider your purchase. Because it is, but…the images this lens produces are beyond impressive. When shooting a Rock Mountain Big Horn Sheep at 75 yards the detail is amazingly sharp and clear. Autofocus is fast and accurate while the Vibration Reduction works flawlessly. The controls are well laid out, very straight forward, and easy to operate.
  • Pros: Highest quality optics, Optimum performance, Tack sharp images

The only lens you'll need...

bocaratonvideo, Ebay
11 January 2011
  • Summary: This is a professional grade lens unlike the stock lenses that you get when you purchase a new Nikon Camera. It's really the only lens you need unless need an ultra zoom. The depth of field is remarkable. Low light settings when flash can not be used (weddings) perfect.

Buy One !!!! You'll never regret it

  • Summary: I just received this lens from an ebay sale and all I can say is that it's an awesome. I don't take my photo gear purchases lightly, often taking months to make decisions after lots of homework. This lens was well worth the wait and the payment. It's tack sharp, even at f2.8, although I'll admit I've not gone "big" with an image yet to check the corners, etc. It is on the heavy side, but not so much that it's worth all the fuss so many owners complain about.

You would expect Nikon lens to be good however

Paintedfowl, Nikon

  • Summary: I ordered one after shooting a Friday night football game under the poorest lighting conditions using the 200 to 400. Love the 200 to 400 but F4 wasn't enough. I received the lens Friday afternoon, opened the box, snapped on the lens and drove to the game. I was wowed considering I had been getting shots that were acceptable. It made me famous among the local circut. I use this lens for everthing including macro with tubes.
