I went out today and purchased a used Nikon 105mm 2.8 Micro VR lens. I bought it primarily to use for Wedding Detail shots and some commercial shots, but after giving this lens a little test-drive today; I have decided that it could possibly be used for many other applications as well. Macro is just one of the many amazing uses.
This is by no means an official review and I won’t be posting 100% crops, because that just takes to much time and is tedious haha!
The feel of the lens is pretty amazing. It’s pretty beefy and has an incredibly sturdy feel to it. The Af-S on this camera is extremely accurate and quick. It does skip around a tad bit when you are extremely close to your subject, but it doesn’t skip around enough to make me crazy.
The sharpness of this lens is truly amazing, but I think my favorite part is the fact that you are not completely dedicated to shooting Macro. You could be shooting a very fine detail shot of your Bride & Groom’s Wedding rings and then all of a sudden without skipping a beat you can suddenly turn around and start snapping portraits as well. I am extremely happy to have added this to my kit and I know it will get lots of use!
Here are my not so interesting images, but I had fun shooting them and I guess that is what counts!!!! 😉
