Comments about Nikon 105mm f/2.8G ED-IF AF-S VR Micro-Nikkor Close-up Lens:

I own and operate a saltwater coral and fist store and rely on my macro lense. after using two othe 90-105mm macros i found the easiest and most reliable lense in the nikon 105. This lense is consistent with crisp photos and easy to use with our D7000. You will not be upset witht his lense. I think the other lense are a good first time macro but if you can afford to try the nikon 105 you wont need another macro ever again

    Comments about Nikon 105mm f/2.8G ED-IF AF-S VR Micro-Nikkor Close-up Lens:

    Although the price tag is almost $1000, this lens is a bargain when compared to similar lenses being made by third-party manufacturers such as Sigma, especially when you consider that Sigma's 105mm macro has compatibility issues with the D7000. As a premium Nikon lens it produces sharp images. That's to be expected. The barrel is metal and the VR works as described by Nikon. I've managed to hand-hold this lens and get sharp images with shutter speeds as low as 1/8th second. The autofocus is EXREMELY fast and quiet. The AF-S motor allows you to have instant manual focus override. Even if you aren't an avid macro shooter, this lens is a great addition to any photographer's kit as all of it's great features make it suitable for general photography as well.

          I haven't done much macro photography but I am looking forward to what this lens can do. It is a heavier lens but the benefits will definitley compensate for that. I am still getting familiar with it but as said before, I am looking forward to using it more and more.
