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. <br />It seems like a very good lens for the price.
  • Pros: Durable, Lightweight, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Tough To Attach

Good standard lens

  • 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, Ritz Camera
6 February 2012
  • Excerpt: 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

Macro is a great photo opportunity & this is a great way to get started

  • Summary: This is a great lens; when you start using it you can't stop. The picture quality is fantastic and there is so much creativity available in macro. I purchased it to use with my Nikon D7000 in an Ikelite underwater housing of a two month long photo expedition to Mexico this winter. Experimentation with this setup has shown promise and the macro underwater pictures should be fab. Get one of these lenses and give it a go you will not be disappointed!

Beautiful close-ups, and portraits, too.

Renny L., B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: I bought this lens out of a strong desire to get into macro photography. Once it arrived, I quickly realized just how much dedication is required in the macro world.<br /><br />The lens produces beautiful macro shots with amazing detail. The close-ups are sharp and have a very smooth and creamy bokeh that gives great separation between your subject and both the foreground and background. The colors are bright and vivid with good contrast.
  • Pros: Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
  • Cons: No lens hood, Tough To Attach
