Great lens except for one design flaw

  • Excerpt: This is a great lens for both macro and everyday shooting. Delivers fast, clear macro shots with A LOT of light. Only design flaw is that it is not a smooth attachment to the D800.. makes me cringe every time.
  • Pros: Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Poor in Low Light, Tough To Attach

More than just a macro lens

  • 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.
  • Pros: Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Rugged
  • Cons: Heavy

Easy to use

  • Excerpt: The lens is straight forward and easy to use. There is very little distortion on outer edges. I found that single point focus was the best way to get the most clarity of subject. It seems like a very good lens for the price.
  • Pros: Durable, Lightweight, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Tough To Attach

Good standard lens

Gramps, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: While not as versatile a micro lens as Nikon's other offerings, it's a great lens for copying slides. Also makes a fine standard lens as long as you don't need the speed of an f/1.4 or 1.8.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Rugged

Worthwhile addition in your Macro Gear!!!!

  • Summary: Following the Majic Lantern Guide to Nikon Lenses, this little lens is exactly as reviewed in the book, tac sharp but limited depth of field. You may or may not get the results your looking for then again, you may get a result better than what you expected and extra touches that make the image stand out, from an accidental standpoint. I am just getting into Macro Photography and am still learning the nuiances of this lens.

Fantastic Macro Lens

kwongphotography, WolfCamera.com
6 February 2012
  • Conclusion: This is an absolutely fantastic lens. It's extremely sharp. The autofocus is very fast, even though it's not an AF-S lens. The AF is fast enough to cover sports which require short lenses such as basketball. The field of view on DX bodies allows it to double as a portrait lens. The only negative things I can say about this lens are that it doesn't offer instant manual focus override like the newer AF-S version and it won't autofocus with the entry level dSLR bodies.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight
