JUST THE BEST MACRO LENS MADE.
6 November 2014
Summary: I have owned all the macros lenses, that nikon makes. All of them preformed excellent I have spent a lifetime working as a professional photographer, and NIKON has been (my drug of choice) over all the years.
Summary: I started 40 years ago with a Nikon F2S and a 55mm f3.5 Micro-Nikkor, great lens, worked my way up to 105 AF -D also great. The 200mm AF-D is fantastic!! With D-800 in manual and auto ISO, it is incredible. I would suggest a tripod as this lens has a great tripod collar. I also use with a F-5 and use an incident light meter, manual exposure, for close ups of my cats looking out the windows.
Summary: I have been using this lens for detailed medical product photography and the resolution of this lens is absolutely stunning. I never use autofocus for macro shooting. I always manual focus so that I can control the depth of field. Combine a macro focusing rail to this lens and you will have the ultimate in focusing control without having to handhold or move your tripod constantly to achieve your reproduction ratio.
Summary: no puede comprarlo, por una cuestión del sistema de Pay Pal, con tarjeta aprobada.- no puedo entender cómo no pudieron solucionarlo.- me perdí la oportunidad de tener el producto.- la culpa es del sistema y nadie es responsable.
Summary: I recently asquired this lens to augment my 60 mm and my 105 mm macro lenses as well as my bellows and extension tubes. My primary goal was a better working distance than I can get with my 105 mm macro.
Summary: Look at Ken Rockwell's review for the specifics. This is an old school macro lens. The design is old because it works...no need to change something that works. Build is nearly all metal and very high quality. The DOWNSIDES are: I do shoot off hand often, and as such I would use and appreciate the addition of VR (vibration reduction). And I would like to see an upgrade to M/A focus without having to move the switch. Again, shooting handheld means auto-focus too.
Summary: I had been doing a lot of macro work in the field lately, both with extension tubes and the 105mm macro, but wanted to be able to get really good shots of insects which are difficult to say the least! I decided to get this lens, and the first time I used it I got a shot of red ants as good as any I've seen. I shot with my F6, 400 speed color neg, was shooting at 1000 shutter priority, handheld laying on my stomach.
Summary: I bought this lens for hand held macro shots of insects with an R1-C1 flash system and a D300 camera. At long distances, my test images were extremely sharp and contrasty from full aperture down.
Summary: Simple lens but quality outstanding. Pictures as sharp as the famous 105mmf:2.5. If you accept the weight (due to quality components) I strongly recommend this lens. I completed this with a Vivitar 2x multiplier and the results are jus as good if you use a tripod or support when you take the picture.
