Good lens

  • Excerpt: Dependable. But, sometimes it does not autofocus which drives me crazy because I then have to switch the setting on my camera to put it in the manual mode. Otherwise, photos are crisp, you can get close to your subject, and it's pretty lightweight compared to the other lenses I've tried.
  • Pros: Easily Interchangeable, Lightweight
  • Cons: Blurry Focus

Good, but not great

  • Excerpt: This is a nice lens. It's well-built, pretty sharp and has impressive close focus abilities. But the auto-focus is awful! I don't know if we got a lemon, but low-light auto-focus is all but impossible, and for a macro lens that's frankly absurd. I love Nikon, and no one's perfect, and if there's sufficient light this lens does a great job, but if you're shooting in low light then forget it. Going to the 105mm VR in the hopes that it does a better job for our needs.
  • Pros: Lightweight, Sharp Focus
  • Cons: Slow Focus

Beautiful optics but bad move on the

  • Excerpt: A macro lens without a manual aperture ring sure disables the ability to use some of the traditional macro gear like bellows. I still cannot believe that Nikon would design a lens targeted at macro photography without working in an aperture ring. Still, this lens gets plenty close without further extension... maybe too close for many subjects. I so prefer to have the aperture be from the ring when I'm working in tight situations. But oh well.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Lightweight, Sharp Focus

  • Excerpt: Используется для макросъемки мелких товаров, чтобы получить большую глубину резкости делаю диафрагму 22 и выше - но при этом детализация фото очень сильно падает. Сильный свет, задержка поднятия зеркала, чувствительность - ничем не исправить, только меньше f14 более менее вырисовывается хорошее фото.
  • Pros: Не самый дорогой
  • Cons: При диафрагме F16 и выше низкая детализация, "мажет", если не использовать задержку поднятия зеркала. Снять макро "с рук" - невозможно.

  • Conclusion: Ce soi disant nouvel objectif est la réplique de l ancien avec les meme caractéristiques. En fait, il n y a que le prix qui change (2 fois plus chers).
  • Pros: Les memes avantages que l ancien
