Pros: Sharpness, VR and performance.

Cons: Heavy and heavy. Clumsy.

Opinion: From the macro point of point, it excels and there is little to say. Having the VR (in the easel macro the VR is on Off as far as I'm concerned), you would expect to use it in other situations as well (although being less specialized for them). On this you have a big, heavy and clumsy lens. Compared, for example, to the micro 105 AFD in this sense there is no comparison (the current will also be a better performing hair - had both - , but in terms of weight and size we are really on two different planets). So I'd think hard about what I'd like to use it and what logistics I'd be moving with.

Pros: Sharpness... Exceptional

Cons: For now nothing.. Maybe the footprint

Opinion: FIRST macro experience... I was "Basito" for the sharpness.. I took it to amaze myself and use it with Z7. I only did 2 sessions, and I was thrilled... Used with a monopod on the adaptor ring of Z7 it scales very well and you can "commute" to the focus.. Keep in mind that at Diaphragms also closed the depth of field at 30-50 cm is a few millimeters (see table). In the first two sessions a good percentage of shots were (for me) exceptional (something I put so NIkon club) CLAUDIO-LM

Pros: Definition, helicoid for manual focusing in macro, color rendering and excellent balance with machine bodies of the D8xx and D5xx series

Cons: Nothing special

Opinion: I state that I have in the kit all 105 Micro with manual focus and AF starting from the legendary 105/4, so I appreciate the macro capabilities of this lens that is the direct heir of a lucky model became the "micro" par excellence of Nikon .rnThe VR version adds the stabilization that can be of some use in macro, although quite limited, while it is certainly irreplaceable in normal use, especially with pixel-rich sensors.rnA years later it is still able to surprise me with the richness of the detail and color rendering, especially on important parts of the macro world as the composite eyes of insects.rnIt 'incredible satisfaction that can give, especially in the usual use for me freehand.rnrnQui I collected some shots made with this exceptional lens : rnrnhttps: //www.flickr.com/photos/henry62/albums/72157663955540877rn

Pros: Sharpness, stabilizer, quality construction

Cons: AF a little slow, but I do not know whether to call a minus, the end is a macro! so it is not essential.

Opinion: It purchased about two years ago, replacing the equally good Tamron 180mm f / 3.5. The presence of the stabilizer is already perceived as a good assistant in critical cases, I often find myself in very uncomfortable conditions where to place the tripod. It found an excellent sharpness, and so true that I use for portraits because it is too incisive sull'incarnato, better to use other lenses. Robust and well built, it is felt immediately as soon as you have in your hands. I use both FF reflex that APS-C, with the latter we really enjoy it a lot because I get a focal length of 157,5mm f / 2.8. The AF is not instantaneous, but those who seek this in a macro lens probably has no clear idea. Almost always focheggio hand, so it is by no means essential, at least for me.

Pros: Versatility of use free hand / stand

Cons: high cost for a lens which has over ten years

Opinion: I state that I have used this lens only in macro and close-up and practically very little in portrait. The Nikkor 105mm has been my lens for macro for four years, and the objective that I have used more than ever. Excellent bokeh, good sharpness. A free hand with stabilizer function I noticed some noise, nothing great, but there. The weight makes it indicated on machines such as D7000 (and the two upper) or D300 / D500, while on slight entry level there is a certain imbalance, and the absence of a collar for the tripod does not make it completely suitable for shooting from a tripod. In a couple of cases I've also used for landscape photography and I was impressed by the results. Incomprehensible as it were to figures more acceptable in 2013 when I bought it than it is now, with the same type of guarantee. For over 10 years, would require a revision of prices or a new edition.
