Summary: I bought this lens for closeup pictures of my chickens, flowers, caterpillars etc. I have nothing but Nikon lenses for my Nikon 3100? DSL camera. This lens is so easy to use and I get great photos every time. I highly recommend it!
Summary: A real little gem of a lens. Dirt cheap to buy. Excellent, sharp, punchy pictures. Really surprising for a lens this inexpensive. It is light, compact and could easily be used as your all around standard lens. Unlike Canon's compact 50mm macro this lens is capable of shooting at 1:1macro while the Canon requires a teleconverter to achieve the same. If you have a APS-C size (DX) sensor you need to get one of these lenses.
Summary: Buy Lens because I am a professional photographer, or as part of my job. The product is Nikon so it does very good quality work for forty years with the brand. The lens is very versatile, especially in the use of macro and performance being 2.8 with respect to the brightness are good
