Must-Have Prime Lens

 

Every photographer should have a fast prime portrait lens along with a good macro lens - this one fits both bills. Deducted one star because Nikon has decided we don\'t need aperture rings anymore.

Super sharp, but a little slow to focus

 

I use this for macro shots during weddings, I love this focal length for rings and tiny details. For portraits, it is really difficult to grab focus, so if you are in a situation when you need to be able to shoot people fast, this is not the lens for...

Perfect For My Use

 

In the past I purchased medium quality lens. In fact, this is my first quality lens and the difference is noticable. Don\'t wait, if you are looking for a quality macro lense buy it. The lense is heavy, but manageable.

perfect for nature photography

 

Great lens for hand-held macro nature photography. Internal focusing is an essential feature for using a lens mounted ring light such as the metz ms-1. The much discussed "focus breathing" is not a problem for me, since 90% of my pictures are cropped...

Great macro lens!

 

This is a fantastic macro lens. It does great for indoor macro photography where one can control the lighting (in a studio set up). And with the Vibration Reduction technology it also works great for hand held macro shots out in the field where...

Product Specifications

The AF-S VR 105 f/2.8G IF-ED brings the benefits of vibration reduction (VR) to the domain of Macro photography. It offers high-resolution, high-optical performance for both digital and 35mm film format SLR cameras. This lens incorporates Nikon's second-generation vibration reduction system (VR II) that allows flexible hand-held shooting by stabilizing the image to the equivalent stability of a shutter speed that is 4 stops faster when compared with a conventional lens (as determined by Nikon performance test). The SWM (Silent Wave Motor) and IF (Internal Focusing) ensure quiet autofocusing with quick and convenient switching between autofocus and manual operation. Optical performance is enhanced by an ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass element that minimizes chromatic aberration, and Nano Crystal Coat which drastically reduces flare, enabling finely defined, clear images.
