Nikon Nikkor AF-S Micro 105 mm f/2.8G IF-ED VR

 

Makro lenses of class 100 mm are so popular instruments that they can be found in the offer of practically every manufacturer. Until now we have already managed to test Tamron 2.8/90, Tokina 2.8/100 and Sigma 2.8/105. Canon 2.8/100 and Sony 2.8/100 are...

solid casing and good build quality ; excellent image quality, both in the centre and in the corner of the frame ; exquisite chromatic aberration ; small distortion ; not too big astigmatism ; great work of autofocus ; effective stabilization

some problems at work against bright light ; prohibitive price

It is a good lens to have if your a macro lover. It produces beautiful bokeh and can be use instead of an 85 prime but with an apreture of F/2.8-3.2. They are plenty of Macro lens on the market and I would recommend them over this high price Nikon lens.

Build Quality: This lens got all the bell and whistles. Focus limiter/VR/Macro of course.AM/M switch with Nano.Image quality :is very good but that is the case with all macro lenses made. I have yet to hear off a terrible Macro lens with poor image...

HeavyAutofocus is slow but shouldn't be a problem for Macro work.Price is on the high side while they are plenty of better an other options for better valueVR isn't usful for most Macro work unless you are shooting close up of flowers and objects of...

One trick pony...but then it IS a macro lens.

Tack-sharp, good for intended purpose of extreme close-ups/macro photography

Very noticeable flaring in direct light, purple and greens difficult to fix in post. Do not use for portraiture unless the light is quite diffused

Extremely sharp and no discernible distortion. I use this lens on a Nikon D800E for extreme high res pan's (mural prints up to 7.2M x 2.4M from multi Gb files and incredible resolution). I also use it in conjunction with a backlit flash slide copier...

Nikon Nikkor AF-S Micro 105 mm f/2.8G IF-ED VR

 

Good value for money; very versatile

Very sharp; very good macro lens until 1:1; good build quality; very good for portraits

AF hunts very often, sometimes I need to switch it off altogether.Though it is very sharp, it is not "State of the Art" anymore. Correction of colour errors could be better
