Summary: I was expecting this lens to take better images of things far away but it doesn't really do all that great. The product description made it seem like this lens would do more than just a close-up images. But the images I have taken that are far away did not come out good at all.
Summary: As a life long a mature photographer, and dedicated Nikon user, I've owned most of the Nikon cameras and lenses made for the public (they do make lens not avaliable on the open market) so I wanted to share some of my experiences with this, and other Micro lenses.
An exceptional general use lens with very close focus ability.

Summary: An exceptional general use and portrait lens with very close focus ability. That may seem like a bit of a letdown statement for a macro lens. Don't get me wrong, I actually love this lens. But well, sadly, this lens is a bit of a letdown for a macro lens.
Excerpt: I bought this specifically to copy slides with the Nikon ES-1 and my D7200. It works perfectly for that even though Nikon does not specifically recommend it. No other adapters or rings needed. I already have the Nikkor 105 VR, so I was going to sell it when I'm done copying slides. But..
Excerpt: I bought this lens specifically for flower and macro nature photography, but I find it works great for abstract and walk-around photography. Even makes a great little portrait lens. You can get as close as you want or need and still have everything in perfect focus.
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.
