I waited a few weeks before writing this review. One to get familiar with the true macro lens and to work out my kinks. I ordered this Nikon 85mm micro lens after many weeks of researching what I should get. I have used all the various attachments, i.e. magnifiers, extension rings, x times filters and the Raynox M-250 ring. Which is great in a pinch. Not to mention the macro feature of a Tamron 70-300 zoom with macro feature. They all do a really good job and I never thought I would see a big difference in an actual macro lens. As the Pro's say, there's nothing like a real macro 1:1 lens. I'm now a believer. I struggled with various brands, sizes, etc. Let's remember everyone has their own specific needs and price range. I actually wanted everything, distance, VR, internal focus, light weight, quality and because of the price, I was hoping to get more use out of this one lens, I did. I must say I almost made the wrong choice for me, but I'm glad I kept thinking about it. After much review and study, the Nikon (Nikkor) 85mm micro lens was the one. It seemed to fit right in the middle of what I wanted, needed and could afford. The Nikon delivers. I use this on a D7000. I have included a few pics for sampling. I found that very helpful when I was researching the various lenses. Although I not sure what size and quality the samples actual post at. The lens is sharp, fast and very responsive. I realize when shooting macro, a tripod is the way to go, but that is fine when you have a setup shot. A spontaneous moment requires that grab the camera and shoot. That's one of the best features of the Nikon, the VR. The internal focus (so the lens does not get any longer) is also a Great feature. You can be at a very reasonable distance 9-10 inches at 1:1 for a great shot. The Infinity range of the lens takes good shots also, what a nice short telephoto lens. I'm sure going forward I will have more uses for this lens. I won't go on about the other brands I checked out, and I sure there are good ones out there, but I am very very satisfied with the 85mm Nikkor. I would recommend it to anyone. If I had a Full frame camera, the 105 would have been my choice, but not this time. By the way, the samples I have included were all taken with the camera hand held. Limitation to file size though. I hope this review helps other to make a good decision, and to find the lens right for you.

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.

Simply Amazing

By 

from Cincinnati, OH, USA

Comments about Nikon AF-S DX Micro NIKKOR 85mm f/3.5G ED VR Camera Lens:

I recently purchased this lens and am greatly impressed with the quality of the macro images I have taken. It produces crystal clear, razor sharp details at extremely close distances. It is a feature rich lens with vibration reduction and a manual override of the amazingly accurate autofocus. The distance scale is also a reproduction scale display allowing for greater creative control of macro photography. This lens also takes great general photos at 85mm focal length. I am more than satisfied in my purchase of this lens.

Great value and very useful

By 

from Kentucky, USA

Comments about Nikon AF-S DX Micro NIKKOR 85mm f/3.5G ED VR Camera Lens:

I am a long time photo hobbyist and have owned a lot of great gear. I got one of these in the two lens special deal, the other being the great 35mm F/1.8DX. At first I was a little uncertain about this lens as I had seen some reviews that were not the best. Well, I say you need to try this lens to appreciate what it can do. I love it! It is an unassuming lens to look at but when you use it the pictures are great. Its actually a lot of fun to use as you start seeing things around you in a different.light as you move in close. The quality of the photos is great too, and I am comparing it to some pretty high dollar lenses I use with my D750, D7100 and D5200. Some want to compare it to Nikon's excellent 105 Macro lens. The highly regarded 105 is about twice the price! One should ask themselves just how good a lens do you really need? Are you a pro who needs the absolute best regardless of price or are you a hobbyist who just enjoys the fun of taking pictures? Some will tell you that they can actually see little difference in photos taken with this compared to the 105. This lens does a very good job. I am very happy with my results with it and feel its a good value at its price point. If money is no object buy the 105 for twice as much. But if you are looking for good value for a amateur photographer this 85mm VR lens pushes all the right buttons. Just look at some of the great sample pictures others have posted. This thing works great! I am happy to say I would buy it again.

Excellent Micro Lens and Portrait Lens Combination

By 

from San Diego, California

Comments about Nikon AF-S DX Micro NIKKOR 85mm f/3.5G ED VR Camera Lens:

I put my Nikon 85mm DX Macro Lens through its paces this weekend. It performed extremely well as both a macro lens and a portrait lens. Its light weight makes it very portable and the optics are excellent. Below is a photo of a Paper Kite butterfly taken at the annual San Diego Zoo Safari Park "Butterfly Jungle" exhibit. The shutter speed is 1/250 of a second, the aperture is f/16, the ISO is 560, white balance is "Flash," and exposure is "Matrix Metering." Also below is a portrait of my grandson at his first T-Ball game. The shutter speed is 1/200 of a second, the aperture is f/3.5, the ISO is 100, white balance is "Auto," and exposure is "Matrix Metering."

Great lens

By 

from Vancouver, WA, USA

Comments about Nikon AF-S DX Micro NIKKOR 85mm f/3.5G ED VR Camera Lens:

This lens is amazing. I've used it for portraits, nature, animals, etc. Photos are sharp yet has just the right amount of bokeh around the focus point. Occasionally will search for focal point, especially in low light, but it's nothing to really complain about. Overall it's an amazing lens to have.

Super sharp details in all photos taken at all distances.

By 

from Undisclosed

Comments about Nikon AF-S DX Micro NIKKOR 85mm f/3.5G ED VR Camera Lens:

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.

A Brand New World!

By 

from Undisclosed

Comments about Nikon AF-S DX Micro NIKKOR 85mm f/3.5G ED VR Camera 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!

Nice macro and portrait lens

By 

from Undisclosed

Comments about Nikon AF-S DX Micro NIKKOR 85mm f/3.5G ED VR Camera Lens:

I was looking for an 85 for portraits on my D7000, with the DX crop that would be close to what a 135 would be on a film camera. I also wanted a macro to shoot food and flowers. After some research I decided on this lens. After four months of use I can say it was a good purchase. This is a nice lens that performs well. It does hunt occasionally, the nature of the beast, and when it does I switch to manual focus and move the camera back and forth to get what i want. For portraiture it gives a nice blurred background (I don't like the term Bokeh).

Great little macro lens for the money!

By 

from Grimsby, ON, Canada

Comments about Nikon AF-S DX Micro NIKKOR 85mm f/3.5G ED VR Camera Lens:

The Nikkor Micro 85 mm VR is a great macro lens for the money. Quite sharp with almost no distortion at all. For DX users this is a superb addition to your kit. The VR enables good macro results hand held, and the 85mm focal length is great for general photos and portrait work (as long as you don't need super smooth bokeh). For a modest price this macro lens opens up a whole new world of creativity.
