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. http://www.rossminkin.com )
