Good optics but the AF is hunting badly

Paul, Amazon
28 September 2014
  • Summary: Advantages: - Cheap - Sharp - Small and lightweight - Solid built Disadvantages: - Really bad AF - Chromatic aberration could be less I'm just dragging this lens around in my camera bag on weddings to do a few shots of rings and some other details. I appreciate how significantly much smaller it is over the Canon 100mm (new version) and the Sigma 105mm. I had a 50mm macro before which is even a bit smaller but I wanted the image compression of a 100mm macro.

Good optics, bad AF

Konstantin Cherezov, Amazon
22 April 2014
  • Summary: I knew upfront that AF on these lens will be slow. But I didn't imagine that it will be THAT bad. First of all, "hunting" is horrible, especially on low contrast subject. Most of the time it will just not lock. Second, it takes forever to AF. Literally - 3 to 6 seconds, and I'm not joking. So, the proper way to use these lens is - switch to MF, roughly focus, switch to AF and let AF kick in. Or, simply use MF all the time.

Nice lens for beginners

William Bryant, Amazon
8 April 2014
  • Summary: Like the title says, it is an amazing lens. Super sharp and great at focusing up closely. Take note this will be the equivalent of 160mm on a crop body such as my rebel T4i. Just two complaints. Through the seller all you get is the international warranty which I believe means that the lens I received was a grey market lens which was not specified. This by itself will result in 3 stars because they neglected to mention it.

Disappointed with Chromatic Aberration

Ehjae, B&H Photo
13 December 2013
  • Excerpt: This lens has horrible fringing. I'm not really stoked about it. If you are ok with working to remove that on pretty much every photo, this is worth the cheaper price. As for me, I will be returning it to probably buy the Nikon 105mm instead.
  • Pros: Easily Interchangeable, Lightweight
  • Cons: High chromatic aberration

GOOD LENS

  • Summary: attention aux taxes de douanes en France 35%. ce n'était pas précisé sur l'annonce et le vendeur m'a dit qu'il ne savait pas le montant. Sinon l'objectif est conforme à l'annonce et en très bon état vraiment comme neuf.

Good buy for the price

  • Excerpt: I bought this lens after another wedding photographer recommended it. This is my first macro lens and the manual that this lens came with was not very helpful. I get error messages when I use it on my full frame D800 and it doesn't always work on that camera, but it does work on my D300, The focus is sometimes difficult to get used to, but maybe I need to practice more. I think for the price compared to the Nikon version, it is a good buy.
  • Pros: Easily Interchangeable, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh
  • Cons: Slow Focus

Excellent for price but I returned it

Adorama
23 July 2012
  • Excerpt: I bought this after reading many reviews. I think the lens is an excellent lens and that everything you read is true. I did not like the grinding noise of the lens and I found it difficult to focus. I returned it. If you want a good macro for half the cost of the Nikkor 105 than you found your lens.
  • Cons: Slow Focus, Tough To Attach
