My 105mm f/2.8G AF-S VR Micro NIKKOR macro has never, in any sense, let me down in the six years I have used it.
This is a full “user’s appraisal” since I have owned a disgraceful number of macro lenses of assorted makes and focal lengths over the years in my search for the search for the ‘Holy Grail’ – biting sharpness. So, before I start, let me set out my stall. I am first and foremost a naturalist and a passionate conservationist who uses photography to express what he sees in and feels about nature and the world around. My background was originally highly technical (a physicist with lots of theoretical optics involved), but my heart lies towards the artistic and philosophical. I am, by nature a user and a pedantic, demanding so and so, who having spent his money, will accept no compromise. Trust me – I have no time for advertisers hype, just for what a lens delivers.
