Nikon AF-S DX Micro-Nikkor 85mm f/3.5G ED VR

 

The Nikon AF-S DX Micro-Nikkor 85mm f/3.5G ED VR is another excellent macro lens from Nikon thanks to exceptional sharpness and 1:1 magnification.

Very sharp. 1:1 magnification. Compact. Optical stabilization system

Lacks focus limiter switch. Short working distance for 1:1 photography. Not a full-frame lens. Some barrel distortion

Nikon photographers have no shortage of options when it comes to macro lenses. The AF-S DX Micro-Nikkor 85mm f/3.5G ED VR ($529.99) is one of a pair that's designed specifically for the APS-C sensor size used by Nikon DX cameras, and like the AF-S DX...

Nikon AF-S DX Micro 85mm f/3.5G ED VR Review

 

Gary Wolstenholme reviews the Nikon AF-s DX Micro 85mm f/3.5G telephoto macro lens.

Good sharpness at optimum apertures; Lightweight; Vibration Reduction; Internal focusing

Although good, clarity isn't as impressive as some other Micro Nikkors

REVIEW: Nikon AF-S DX Micro Nikkor 85mm f/3.5G ED VR Lens Review

 

This telephoto macro lens for DX format Nikon cameras costs around £400 and sports Vibration reduction technology, a modest maximum aperture of f/3.5, an internal focusing design and a silent wave focusing motor. The 85mm Micro DX is one of the longer...

Good sharpness at optimum apertures; Lightweight; Vibration Reduction; Internal focusing

No focus limiter switch (although autofocus is fairly swift without it); Although good, clarity isn't as impressive as some other Micro Nikkors

Nikon's latest Micro Nikkor optic strikes a good compromise. It is a lens packed with the latest technology and features, but at a price that is really quite reasonable.

Good Makro Lense

 

Produces high quality pictures and is a good makro lens that can also be used for general photography. Personally I would now rather choose the 55mm Nikkor lens since it would be even more general usable, but that is my personal choice and not the...

Consumer review by: DrumZ001 (bestbuy.com.feed)

Well worth the investment

 

I wanted a true 1:1 macro lens that was sharp, smooth, with a high degree of quality for the money. Bokeh effects were of secondary importance to me but this lens does that well, too! I am fully satisfied with this lens! I wouldn't bother posting...
