  • Excerpt: This Micro lens from Nikon, was the first of it's kind to include vibration reduction when it was introduced. It sports a fast f/2.8 maximum aperture, a silent wave focusing motor, which allows full time manual focus override and Nikon's Nano Crystal anti-reflective lens coatings. Life size magnification is possible at the lens' closest focus distance and is costs around £620.

REVIEW: Nikon AF-S VR Micro-Nikkor 105mm f/2.8G IF-ED

  • Conclusion: There is not a lot I can criticise about this lens considering the optical performance along side the build quality and features. I think it will find a lot of friends amongst both professionals and keen amateurs alike. The only downside to the lens is the price, which is a bit steep for a type of lens that many will already have in their kit. Is it worth an upgrade? If you suffer from camera shake, yes!
  • Pros: The only true macro with stabilisation. And it works, Truly superb optical quality, Rapid and silent autofocus
  • Cons: The price, Drop-off in resolution at the edges when wide open. (Minor)

  • Excerpt: While I hope to create a full Nikon 105mm f/2.8G AF-S VR Micro Lens evaluation, my first priority is to include results from this lens in the lens comparison tools. This page currently exists because it is required by the database and content management systems for the posting of those standard test results.

  • Excerpt: Not only is it a large optic, it works out at 120g heavier than Canon's 100mm macro, weighing in at a mighty 720g. It's unique in that it's the only lens to incorporate optical image stabilisation with Nikon's Vibration Reduction (VR II) function offering the equivalent stability of a shutter speed that's four stops faster.

  • Conclusion: What can be written in the summary? Nikkor 2.8/105 VR is undoubtedly a very fine instrument, which will enable us taking very sharp photos. The problem (problem for Nikon, not to its customers) is that there is a great competition in the class of macro lenses of focal length 100 mm. In relation to its competitors Nikkor may boast itself with a great advantage, which is stabilization.
  • Cons: some problems at work against bright light, prohibitive price

  • Excerpt: Мои любимые объективы относятся к категории макро. Самое удивительно в том, что непосредственно макро я снимаю довольно редко. Меня всегда подкупала невероятно маленькая глубина резкости при съемке с небольших дистанций, полное отсутствие искажений и аккуратная проработка деталей в портретах при правильном выборе освещения. Здесь решения лучше макрообъектива с его уникальными особенностями зачастую просто не найти.
  • Pros: надежная конструкция;, высочайшая разрешающая способность;, хорошая защита от бликов;, быстрый для макрообъектива автофокус;, лимитер дистанций фокусировки;, эффективныйстабилизатор.
  • Cons: “плавающее” значение максимальной диафрагмы.
