    I am fairly new to macro. Recently I found my ground and needed a good lens for a good price. I bought 40mm before this, but the distance was always an issue with me, so I ended up buying this and I know I will never regret this decision. The lens is amazing. The ergonomics are a little slow, but that could be because I am using d3100 with fewer focus points then a pro level camera, but this lens delivers! 1:1 ratio is amazing!! Only reason I gave it 4 stars and not 5 because, I would have liked to see f 2.8 instead of 3.5. I am learning and growing more into macro photography everyday because of this lens. Very soon, I am planning to upgrade to d7000. I hope this lens works on it. I really do ! If you are like me and make second - third decisions on everything. STOP! This is the right one. Buy this lens if you are serious about macro photography. Expand your horizons and grow. Below are some of my pictures.

    I really enjoy this lens for taking pictures of flowers and people. Granted that to get anything beyond a face with an 85 mm lens you need considerable distance, nevertheless the image quality is great and creates a lovely bokeh.

    I only learned about Nikkor Micro lenses relatively late in my film camera days, but they quickly became favorites. This 85mm is the best yet. I love taking pictures of the various plants and shrubs I have in my yard and the ability to get in close for a dramatic image has enhanced my enjoyment of both the plants and the photography. Mated with the D7000, I have the perfect 'rig' for taking these photos. The sharpness of the images and the smoothness of operation make taking pictures a lot more fun. The biggest surprise was the discovery of the fine, delicate, details of blossoms, leaves, etc. I had not seen them before. When I post some of them on my facebook page, I get almost immediate feedback. Some of it comes from folks I don't even know. If you haven't ever tried a micro lens, you owe it to yourself to do so. It will open your eyes to a whole new world of subject matter.

    We bought both the 85 mm DX micro and the 105 mm micro for work. I read that the 85 has significant barrel distortions and is below par for a Nikon lens. In contrast, the 105 is considered excellent. I have used both extensively for close work on small inanimate objects. For what I am doing, I see no difference at all between the pictures I get with 85 and the 105. The 105 is certainly more solid, but considerably heavier and twice the price. If you rather carry around a much lighter lens, the 85 should do just fine. I find both VR and auto focusing to be quite helpful. I have never had to manually focus, despite what I have read about the need for doing so under high magnifications. I also take all my close-ups without a tripod because the VR works so well. This is certainly not the advice I have seen. Everything I read says that micro picture must be taken with a tripod.

    A LOT of chromatic aberration.

    This lens creates a lot of chromatic aberration. In almost every single picture I have taken with this lens, there is a good amount of irritating blue and yellow chromatic aberration. I would recommend this lens to someone who is new and doesn't notice things like this in their images , but for someone who cares about image quality and wants it to be the best possible, i would tell them not to get this lens.

    I knew I wanted a macro lens. It would be my first, and as all my other lenses are Nikon made, I wanted to 'keep it in the family'. Like many, I did my research before committing to a purchase. I chose this, the 85mm after careful consideration and many great reviews on various sites. For a maiden voyage, I took it to a combo flower/butterfly show. How did it fair? Incredible, fantastic, marvelous...need I go on? I won't say every shot was perfect. They never are, right? Yet, when I got home and had the chance to really see what I'd shot on my 27" LED monitor, I almost couldn't believe my eyes. Bottom line? I'm thrilled with this lens! I feel like I've opened the door to a brand new world of creative possibilities. Now go get yours! I'll try to get some of those first shots up soon!

    Super sharp details in all photos taken at all distances.

    Customer review by Flyrod

    I have taken over 400 photos of different subjects at different distances. The details are sharp clean and crisp in all the photos, except those where I failed to hold the camera steady or where I snapped the shutter before the AF functioned. A photo of a pecan laid on a table cloth snapped at a distance of about 12 inches was so sharp that the linen fibers in the threads on the table cloth were visible and all the texture on the pecan was lear. Photos of a rosemary plant at 30 ft showed the texture of the leaves. Color was correct on all subjects. specially nice is a shot of ice covered tree limbs with the sun shining through and a deep blue sky background. I have six other lenses ranging from a 50 mm prime to a 150-500 mm zoom. so far, none of them are superior to the 85mm f3.5.

    Worth the wait. Excellent clear close-ups.

    This is my 3rd foray into micro-nikkor lenses, and I just may hang on to this one! With the VR function it is easier to use, however at really close work a tripod is pretty much required to get the best out of the lens. I got it for a D5000, and have since moved to a D5300, and it is so clear and sharp, and the colours are very rich. It helped to adjust the camera to force the lens to a higher f-stop in order to get the depth of field needed for most three-dimensional items, With a little care to the camera work, the final results are certainly worth the effort! I have a list of small valuable items that will eventually get photographed, and I'm looking forward to the results. Attached image is mildly compressed to fit this website's requirements.
