Excerpt: Haven't had the lens long enough to tell, but the pictures I have taken so far are very sharp. Will be able to write more after I have had more time to use. The manual that came with the lens is not helpful at all.
Summary: Pros: - reasonably sharp in the center - very light weight - min focus distance is superb Cons: - not as sharp as I hope to be, which contradicts many of the reviews that I've read - the CA effects are on the high side - blurry anyway except the center For this price, this is not a bad lens. But unless you only take macro shots with center focus, then I do not recommend this lens. So IMO, any shots that follows the rule of 3rd will be disappointed.
Summary: Well this may be a budget macro lens introduced by nikon, but its not a very good idea to take this lens on a macro shoot, the focal length is just too less for this kind of job as a result of which u might have to go in much closer than a regular 105 mm macro, id rather ask u to invest a few more bucks and go for a tokina or sigma 105
