Excellent macro and portrait lens

Excerpt: I received my 105mm micro and find it tack sharp excellent for macro and portraits. I was looking for a versatile lens to do both. The autofocus is not completely silent and it does hunt a bit for macro work. The portrait focusing is sharp and fast.
Excerpt: I have an old 55mm macro and wanted a 200MM macro but it was too old for me to invest. I settled on the 105 macro and this lens is much much better than I expected and much sharper than my old 55mm macro. Used as both a macro and as a medium telephone the images are sharp and pop.
Pros: Consistent Output, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Sharp
Excerpt: I've always wanted to get into macro photography and debated on so many different lenses. After a ton of research I've decided that the Nikon's 105 2.8G was the best option for me. I picked this up from B&H when Nikon had their lens rebate [$] I was stoked!
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
Excerpt: I bought this lens to photograph still-lifes, insects, plants, and to use as a portrait lens and so far it has performed fantastic. I am also amazed at the clarity of objects taken over 50 yards away. Using a tripod improves the performance of this and any other lens.
Pros: Consistent Output, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh
