Summary: Produces incredibly crisp, clear photos. Turns an amateur photographer into a pro. Shooting with this lens is like finding out the secret behind magic tricks. Photography is one of those activities where "don't blame the equipment" does not always apply.
Summary: Disappointed in this lens. I heard rave reviews about this lens for both macro and portrait work. But sadly, the copy I received that was supposed to be in 'Like new' condition, was soft even stopped down to f/8.
Summary: Received this lens as a Christmas gift along with a D750. Produced really impressive images while photographing my newborn! Definitely worth the purchase for capturing tiny toes & perfect features.

Summary: I did not like this lens at first and wanted to take it back. After taking more time, learning the lens, and shooting more, I am in LOVE with this lens. It is perfect for wedding day details, especially ring shots!
Summary: This is the sharpest piece of glass I own. I expected that, of course. It has a solid feel that engenders confidence in the build quality. The focusing ring is wide and smooth, perfect for the manual focusing so often essential in macro photography.
