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...

Good Value Macro Lens

 

Specialized lens for macro photography. I could have spent more and went with the 105mm lens but I have found this lens suitable for my needs and its much more compact than the bulky 105.

Excellent Micro Lens and Portrait Lens Combination

 

I put my Nikon 85mm DX Macro Lens through its paces this weekend. It performed extremely well as both a macro lens and a portrait lens. Its light weight makes it very portable and the optics are excellent. Below is a photo of a Paper Kite butterfly...

Great lens

 

This lens is amazing. I've used it for portraits, nature, animals, etc. Photos are sharp yet has just the right amount of bokeh around the focus point. Occasionally will search for focal point, especially in low light, but it's nothing to really...
