Good Beginner lens

Joe B., Newegg

  • Summary: Looks really well if you supplement with a flash, preferable diffused.. (my sb-700 has those).. Didnt' look so well with led ring-light, but that was more the light I used... I may continue to keep , though I now wish for the 105mm f/2.8. It's a great price for beginning...
  • Pros: Sharp, fast focus, accurate, auto-focus works well with macro of butterflies that are not moving, light, rugged. good color. f3.5 is adequate for many situations involving sun light
  • Cons: not a FX lens for full frame, will vignette and not a good match with D800 if FX mode (which I should have payed attention to prior to ordering that bundle)

  • Excerpt: Was this review helpful? |
  • Pros: -Able to take pictures of wildlife such as rabbits without frightening them away, meaning, able to stand pretty far back and get a good shot. -Takes pretty sharp images for the most part. Still learning how to use this lens so hopefully that will improve. -Photos are nice and contrasty!
  • Cons: -Camera shake is still present with handheld shots even with VR function

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.
  • 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.
  • Pros: Nice Bokeh

Good affordable micro lens

PatW, B&H Photo

  • 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.
  • Pros: Easily Interchangeable, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction
