Great Little Lens for beginning Macro

  • Excerpt: I purchased this lens to photograph my model building and nature images. I walk for exercise in the forest preserves and this lens is lightweight and does a great job of bringing in the minute detail of objects I and shooting. Wish it was the 105mm version.
  • Pros: Lightweight

Great lens but not without flaws.

  • Summary: This lens is a great piece of glass if you're looking to upgrade from the kit lens but it isn't without flaws. It takes very sharp and almost crystal clear images especially when shooting macro. It can easily double as a great portrait lens if needed as well. It's not a true 2.8 fixed aperture though as it does shift throughout the focal range, but I think this may be normal.

  • Excerpt: I purchased this to have a small lightweight lens I can cart around in the woods looking for photos. I have used filters in the past as well with good success. I poke the performance of this lens.

Versatile after a slight "learning curve"

Anthony Coghlan, Amazon
28 October 2014
  • Summary: I bought this lens as my general purpose replacement for the stock lens as well as my macro, when the stock lens got damaged. It clearly shines as a macro lens, easy to use out of the box for that purpose. Macro images are particularly beautiful. Landscapes are also effortless. I agree with other reviewers who've noted that for general purpose shots (mid-range, such as people or party shots), this lens can seem finicky to focus and even a little slow.

  • Excerpt: I purchased this lens with the intention of using it to take macro shots of flowers, and it has worked very well so far. The only issue that I have had is that it sometimes takes a little while for it to focus. It was well worth the money, though, and I would recommend getting it.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Easily Interchangeable, Great For Macro Shots, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Slow Focus

EXCELLENT OPTICS - GREAT VALUE

Photophanatic, B&H Photo
11 April 2014
  • Excerpt: Because I do not own a Nikon DX DSLR, I am using this lens on my Nikon 1v1 via the Nikon FT1 for closeups of flowers and insects and am greatly impressed with its optical quality. It also serves well for informal portrait work. Given the lens quality it's an excellent value.

Nice little lens

  • Excerpt: I have only had this lens for a short time and have not used it all that much but for the few times I have I am well pleased. Nikon lenses have a very sharp image. Can't wait to get out and do more macro photography.
