Nikon 105mm Macro VR Sample Photos taken with Nikon F5 – Macro Film Photography




I just got back some film I mostly shot with Nikon’s 105mm Macro Lens. As you can tell from my selfie with the dog below, it is a bulky lens. I think this lens should be in every Nikon photographers bag who needs nice details when they are going out to shoot. I tried to include some sample images that show how the lens handles low light, depth of field, macro details, bokeh, etc. I really wanted to see how I could do with just one roll of film and the lens for the first time. ¬†Notice in the red car photo how many times you can spot my reflection (my roommate counted 3!). Overall, I think this lens has pretty decent contrast, the perfect amount of sharpness for macro, and the VR is a nice feature for portraits, although I find it doesn’t help that much with shooting really close macro shots, as it only allows you to focus only so close….this lens, I can imagine, would be pretty decent on a D700, or D800. Overall, If you have the money to spend, I believe this lens can do incredible things for creating beautiful images. (All images ¬©Ross Minkin 2013. All rights reserved. )
