On top of this, the VR II system provides both a steady viewfinder image for composition and sharper results at slow shutter speeds or when shooting movie clips.Beautifully balanced to take anywhere The Nikon DX format provides a compact and light form factor that balances well with Nikon’s range of DSLR’s like the D90 and D5000. With a picture angle equivalent to a focal length of 127.5mm in FX/35mm format, it extends options beyond those offered by standard kit lenses, ideal for portraits or candid photography.The finishing touch Nikon’s acclaimed ED glass provides crisp high contrast results rendered with attractive background blur thanks to the rounded nine blade diaphragm.

  • Excellent lens
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Shannon - June 30, 2019

    I’m so glad that I decided to up the money for this lens. Definitely made an awesome improvement on the quality of photos I take of insects, spiders, lizards, and more. I’m still learning use the functionality of using the manual settings. I haven’t perfected it yet, but I’ve taken some awesome pictures with this lens. Was definitely a great investment!! I have no regrets about buying this lens.

  • Bad copy
    Reviewed by jsugr - August 15, 2012

    Just received my copy from warehouse and sounds like a cheap plastic rattling when focusing. I tried the 40mm and is better than this one. I returned it for this one but I guess is going back to warehouse. Some reviews online are good may be I got a bad copy. If you want a pro lens save some money for the 105 micro or if you are shooting things like rings and jewelry go with the 40mm.

  • Add this lens to your photo bag
    Verified BuyerReviewed by User - June 5, 2021

    Do not hesitate to buy this lens. It brings macro photography to you. I used a 55 years ago and had to get real close to what I was shooting. Took a lot of patience and time. With this lens you can keep a good distance from the subject and get a clear in focus shot every time. This lens works well in low light too. Buy!

  • Good Value Macro Lens
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Chase - June 9, 2015

    Specialized lens for macro photography. I could have spent more and went with the 105mm lens but I have found this lens suitable for my needs and its much more compact than the bulky 105.

    This lens is amazing. My daughter is learning so much about her camera using this and it does everything it says it does. Came with a bag and a lens shield.
