  • Excerpt: Fast precise focusing, beautiful macros and portraits. F 2.8 aperture is MAX, not constant, changes with the focusing distance.

  • Excerpt: I mostly shoot things like crystals, and non living objects. Here is a tip. et used to manual. With Macro, you must be able to select your focus; not your camera. Like "The Fro" says: "You are smarter then your camera." Still planning on getting the "D"version of the lens.

Great lens

  • Excerpt: Nice and sharp. Tends to hunt a little bit when doing closeups but that's typical for a macro lens. It's a great portrait shooter as well.

Great solid glass

  • Excerpt: Using on DX format Nikon which gives approx. 90mm focal length. Very quick focus and quiet. Macro lighting for tabletop can be tricky due to the fact that at 1:1 the subject is almost touching the front element. Solid construction. Autofocus/manual operation is very convenient.

FOCUS ISSUES

Buttercup, B&H Photo
5 February 2015
  • Excerpt: I am a huge fan of Nikon equipment. I recently purchased this lens from B&H Photo. When I received the first lens, it wouldn't focus. Nothing I did would get it to work. I tried autofocus and manual focus. But the lens would never move off of the infinity setting.

  • Excerpt: I had the legendary 105 2.8 macro but never used it b/c of the extending barrel and just too long. This guy is compact, pretty light and really sharp, I mean really sharp. Ultra sharp macro (use a tripod, always) and I love it on the street or in the back country. This is a really sharp lens.

Exactly what I wanted!

  • Excerpt: I'm using this lens with a D5200 body so the effective focal length is 90mm. This review applies to use with any Nikon DX series camera. This is perfect for closeup photography of smaller items for .. with a comfortable working distance of approximately 30" for a coffee cup sized item.

  • Excerpt: The prominent negative review for this macro lens cites that it is NOT f2.8 and the owner returned it. Apparently, this user did not know that Nikon, alone among camera/lens manufacturers, shows the REAL effective f/stop in use at close "macro" distances.
