AF-S VR Micro-Nikkor 105mm f2.8G IF-ED

Bought myself a new lens couple days ago.  A Nikon 105mm micro lens.  It’s also my first dedicated macro lens.  I have been thinking for quite some times whether or not to buy this lens as I have got the Marumi DHG Achromat 200 (+5) to use with my 55-200mm lens.  The magnification and picture quality are pretty good too.  However, I did come across the situation where while I was concentrating on a tiny bug, some interesting objects pass by, and I missed it due to I have to unscrew the close-up lens from the zoom lens.  So now, with a true macro lens, not only I can aim for bugs, I can use it as a portrait and mid-range telephoto lens too, instantly.  And, the picture is definitely far more sharper.

DSC_0007It’s been raining for almost every evening since last week, and bugs disappeared after mowed lawn.  So I tried out the lens on my kitten last night, for portrait purpose.  My sister asked me if I used eye linear on its eyes…LOL!  That’s how sharp a macro lens can be.  Yea, I’m happy!

DSC_0002 I shot this just now.  Went out to the backyard to check on my plants, and I saw this blue-brown bug.  So, it became the 1st bug through the lens.  Photo was cropped at 50% zoom, and it’s still sharp.  I’m impressed!

  3. Peter, I liked a photo of cat. Face, eyes and an expression on his or her face.... He/she is a young ( I think) but the more I look at him, it looks every minute older and older... Perhaps, eyes...
