Summary: New Nikon Lens in Nikon packaging,. Gray Market saves money but does not come with Lens hood. Be aware that lens is sharper at f11 than at f36 fo focus stacking may be necessary for better depth of field than just using flash and higher f (smaller aperture) for sharp macro even on solid tripos.
Excerpt: I use this lens mainly as a portrait lens on my D90. I I love the color rendition provided by this lens. It is sharp, but gives flattering skin tones, especially for women.I usually shoot in manual exposure. Light weight but build quality is excellent.
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
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
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.
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...
Summary: When I first got this lens, it surprised me with the picture sharpness and very good bokeh. The bokeh appeared to be halo discs instead of diffused orbs but still good in my book. I used it for close-up's and people shots plenty.
