Pros: Nitideza, blurred, colors but not extraordinary

Cons: A lens too old as Modelo, very slow autofocus, lack VR, is not compatible with automatic focus stacking of D850!!!

Opinion: Nikon must wake up, its macro coredo and incomplete, it lacks this focal with recent autofocus, I have this lens from dash and I have to resell it, especially for incompenable with automatic focus stacking (which I use with all my other macro lenses with great Resultati) of my D850-so much disappointment when I found that it does not work (I do not often few money to have it! Lack of VR and fast AUTOFOCUS the destiny only for macro use (so it was not needed that the Metevano pure-only manual focus), for rest does not hurt but nothing exuberant as sharpness and colors. Not recommended until Nikon does not update, Adeso I take a Sigma 180mm F2,8 OS, which in the past I had with so much satisfaction.

Pros: Great optical definition and color rendering, solid construction and high-level mechanics

Cons: For the use of macro nothing is missing, the only real flaw is the metal screw hood, which is not known where to put, if not in use, because it is not possible to mount it upside down on the optics.

Opinion: It's one of Nikon's jeweled lenses, of which there's no need for a makeover because really those who use it do not need anything else. It is true that the brightness is not high, but in macro it is not a problem, just as the absence of stabilization is not felt. For years it has been the reference point in Nikon's home for macro lenses and really there is not much to say about this lens except that only those who use it can fully appreciate the immense qualities of the project.rnI've used it with D800 and now with D810, without ever having problems: it is in my opinion a definitive goal for those who love macro photography but not only, because it can be used for photos and landscapes, with some attention, for portraits.rnrnI have collected some shots , always done by hand, with this great goal: rnrnhttps: //www.flickr.com/photos/henry62/albums/72157693701484805rnrnrn

Pros: Excellent optical and constructive quality. One of the best macros in circulation, regardless of age (that is, who says that the projects of modern goals are better than the past does not know what it is talking about having a limited experience).

Cons: Lack of stabilizer. Reduction of the focal length to about 100 mm to 1: 1 (which is normal for a modern floating lenses and IF, with excellent yield even infinitely).

Opinion: The best Micro-Nikkor I have or ever used (my experience is limited to the following Micro-Nikkor: AI-S 55 / 2.8, AI-S 105/4, AI-S 105 / 2.8, AI 200/4 AF, AF 105 / 2.8 D, AF-S 105 / 2.8 VR, as well as AF Tamron 90 / 2.8 SP, Sigma AF 105 / 2.8 and Sigma AF 180 / 3.5 EX ). The Makro-Planar 100/2 ZF is the only macro that can compete, and great with this jewel. But they are completely different objects, and when I move to do mostly macro and close-up I take both 200/4 and 100/2: they complement each other perfectly! Sometimes you hear rumors that require an update of this lens with AF silent wave and / or stabilizer. Let it go! The good is often the enemy of the good! Having to point to a "counter", I indicated the absence of VR, which could be useful in generic freehand photography considered as the focal point and maximum aperture. The introduction of the optical stabilizer group would be a modification of the project, but I doubt that aNikon would be able to do something as high as optical or mechanical, without asking for at least 3000 Euros to ensure the same performance as the VR ... Nobody would buy such a thing at that price, so - calm down - they will not. The maximum effective aperture is: f / 4 between infinity and 1:10; f / 4.2 between 1:10 and 1: 4; f / 4.5 between 1: 4 and 1: 2.5; f / 4.8 between 1: 2.5 and 1: 1.8; f / 5 between 1: 1.8 and 1: 1.2; f / 5.3 between 1: 1.17 and 1: 1. Last note on the tripod collar; today's Nikon engineers should see it and see it again, and then just do one thing: copy it!

Pros: Resolution, robustness, availability of collar, blurred excellent, good balance ...

Cons: Price, heaviness ...

Opinion: I've bought this jewel of a lens with a little 'because in my series of professional missing, but especially having seen the surrender of macro photos of other photographers NPS. Although dated (Series D) I recommend it to those who want to take macro photographs with the capital "M", ie where it is required the maximum resolution, brilliant colors, but also for those who make special playing with the macro focus. What I like finding myself at around surrounded by nature is the feeling of extreme robustness, which brings to mind the objectives of a time (see Leitz, Zeiss). Surely for those who will go to the expense (about 1700-1800 Euro) will not be disappointed ....
