mixed feelings

  • Excerpt: I bought this lens for product work, especially jewelry, because of the macro function. It just isn't as reliably sharp as I would like. This may sound naive (my first macro lens), but to get any depth of field I must use a very small aperture, which doesn't work that well with my natural light...

great for macro, bad for anything else

  • Summary: Like many people before me, i bought this lens with dreams of having a 2 for 1 macro/portrait lens combo. After some real world testing, i have realized this lens doesn't quite live up to the aforementioned dream.

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

Elisa B., B&H Photo

  • 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.
  • Pros: Lightweight, Sharp Focus
  • Cons: Slow Focus

If you have the money go with 105mm

  • Excerpt: I got this lens (it is a quality lens) but found that I needed the 105mm. The distance from your subject to get your 1: 1 is extended with the 105mm. This is a must for flying insects and over all it just works better in macro distance to subject.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Lightweight
  • Cons: Distance

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.
  • 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...
  • Pros: Не самый дорогой
  • Cons: При диафрагме F16 и выше низкая детализация, "мажет", если не использовать задержку поднятия зеркала. Снять макро "с рук" - невозможно.
