Pros: Sharp, VR-complete and very light

Cons: Price and AF not very fast

Opinion: I wanted an optics that would bring me closer to macro photography and at the same time useful to photograph a little bit of everything. I found this a very good answer. Its focal length and VR make it very flexible. It is particularly suitable for portraits, still life and landscapes, of course as well as macro photography... and it is also light (this is indispensable for me: I use it with a Nikon D3200, a very manageable set). But the characteristics that really amazed me are: its efficiency in the backlight and its sharpness even in the corners: an excellent quality! The only thing I find slightly lower is the autofocus that sometimes does not hook the subject, but nothing serious: you can help manually without unlocking it and after it is very precise (also in very close macros I use manual focus). I am also very satisfied with the color yield; I have rarely noticed small chromatic aberrations, which I have sometimes corrected with Nikon Capture NX-D (simple and efficient free program). Overall I really like the lens for really beautiful colors, sharpness and image quality! I would buy it back immediately: my rating is 9 (it would be 10 with a faster autofocus and a lower price)

Pros: sharpness, tropical conditions and compactness

Cons: Price of the new, autofocus, chromatic aberrations

Opinion: I had this goal for a few months, then I sold it because I could not find the right feeling with macro photography and I preferred to move to optics can offer more variations. In itself is a very valid objective in its category, also on my D3200 (or a toy) gave me particular satisfaction in terms of sharpness. As written by others is great not only in macro, but also in still life and close-up portraits (I've made some that are impressive in terms of sharpness). The major uncertainty I found to do most generic type street portraits or settled, but then it is not a goal thought to these generi.rnIn overall assessment is therefore very positive if you look for a goal that within a meters away offers a beautiful sharpness, good color rendering, an important focal length and, at the same time, you carry it around without informing the weight. Perhaps the price is too high, however, consideringthat speaks always of a limited objective for different aspects and with a construction in plastic. rnNote more negative, for those who care, it is the autofocus, which is not exactly a splinter, especially if the light is not optimal. Every now and then we beat some chromatic aberration too my avviso.rnIn general I would say that 8.5 becomes 9 if you find a good opportunity nell'usatorn

Pros: Sharpness, brightness, af, vr, weather sealed

Cons: No ... for now ..

Opinion: Purchased used, at a bargain price, in equal conditions for transition to a new FF, I find it a fantastic lens in the performance and versatility: Quality unsurpassed in its price fascia.Preciso The af, ideal in the macro but discovered fantastic portraits (in spite of those who in some forums it discouraged) and superlative in the street. Beautiful bokeh recommend it to all who want to approach this type of goals without spending a fortune (hard to find used, mine was just luck) .voto 10

Pros: Amazingly Sharp, Exceptional precision AF, Bright in Macro 1: 1 (other more expensive and seemingly bright macro lenses become darker when they arrive at 1: 1), lightweight, protected against water and dust! , Full time manual focusing, the absence of ghost and flare even when used against the ruthless.

Cons: designed to Dx (but you can use very well the same even on a FF with some tricks).

Opinion: I use it for years and it is almost a single body * * with my camera, I find it much better like that as average Tele Macro, has made a superlative, the colors are true, the detail is magnificent, the definition is at its best the optical circulation, use macro has a yield amazing, does not suffer from flare / ghost even in backlight boldest, shows some initial uncertainty in maf where does the parade back and forth before stopping and find the right spot (..but with a little help is resolved on the fly, plus the Full Time seems made) but once achieved is amazing accuracy, perfect, there are much more expensive lenses that are much more inaccurate. And 'light and not too bulky and another of the things that made me prefer is that in macro 1: 1 where the others (even House) that are f / 2 - f / 2.8 "close" to f / 5.6 This remains (if needed, and with appropriate choice) to f / 3.9, and if you please * * is a major advantage. The consiglierei? Yes 100%, plus costs MUCH less of the famous 105mm. Micro, and the results are no different, but ...

Pros: Crisp, versatile with good optical qualities

Cons: Construction, brightness

Opinion: Maybe because his predecessor in the bag was the legendary Micro 105mm f / 2.8 VR that this lens does not convince me completely. The difference that you will notice right away is more difficult to frame and focus manually (almost systematically use this mode). Also you are forced to get closer to the subject given the shorter focal length (if you use both the objectives of the right size). While the 105 is built impeccably both in materials and in the assembly, 85 is quite plasticky and even has some modest "game" the ring of focus. However, thanks to the use of materials maybe less noble is much lighter and more maneuverable the august brother. If for you the weight is not a problem, invested € 400 more and bought the 105mm. However my overall opinion of this lens remains good, the fault is of 105mm which is perfect (see my review).
