Great Tele-Macro!

  • Excerpt: Very good macro lens. The 85 mm focal length gets the lens far enough from the subject that it is less likely to cast a shadow on the subject. Fair warning: the lens makes the camera a little front-heavy, so plan on using a tripod for most macro shots. I also like it for a medium-tele prime lens. I use the lens on my Nikon D3100.
  • Pros: Fast / accurate auto-focus

  • Excerpt: This is my first macro lens. It is very sharp and has a relatively fast aperture. A longer lens may be more desirable but for the price this lens cannot be beat.

Beautiful macro, beautiful portraits

  • Excerpt: I loved taking pictures of flowers with my point-and-shoot, so I was missing the ability to picture the small things in life after upgrading to dSLR. This is my first true Macro lens and I'm not disappointed. Outdoors in full daylight, I'm shooting flowers, and tiny bugs on the top of flowers, with around 3/4 of shots coming out sharp handheld.
  • Pros: Nice Bokeh

Good affordable micro lens

  • Excerpt: Ever since going digital, I've missed my old manual 55mm micro lens! This is a good replacement, allowing me to do the close-up work necessary to document antiques for research and resale. Lightweight, but with the advantges of VR technology, this lens will always be in my camera bag. The only drawback I've experienced thus far is that the lens does not automatically revert to auto-focus after being used in manual mode.
  • Pros: Easily Interchangeable, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction

Pretty good lens

Macro/Micro Novice, B&H Photo
2 January 2014
  • Excerpt: I have not had much time to actually use this lens, but from the few times I have, it seems to do the job. I thought (having farily steady hands) that the VR would allow me to take close-ups using just a tripod, but now I've come to realise that such close focus needs a remote shutter control.
  • Pros: Easily Interchangeable, Lightweight

  • Summary: I've been working with this macro for over a year now. I've taken it into very humid areas, so now i see some moist got inside, but stil works properly.
