23 September 2011
  • Excerpt: This telephoto macro lens for DX format Nikon cameras costs around £400 and sports Vibration reduction technology, a modest maximum aperture of f/3.5, an internal focusing design and a silent wave focusing motor.
  • Pros: Good sharpness at optimum apertures, Lightweight, Vibration Reduction, Internal focusing
  • Cons: No focus limiter switch (although autofocus is fairly swift without it), Although good, clarity isn't as impressive as some other Micro Nikkors

Micro Nikkor AF-S DX 85mm f/3.5 G ED VR - Review / Test Report

photozone.de
3 June 2010
  • Conclusion: The Micro Nikkor AF-S DX 85/3.5 VR is an attractive option for DX shooters looking for a dedicated macro lens. It's rather light-weight and compact, delivers very sharp images wide open already, which can be considered distortion free (at least for typical macro subjects) and show only minimal traces of CAs. The bokeh is nice and smooth, just a tad underdeveloped for normal tele use due to the lack of speed.
