    Ok, I have had this lens a couple of months now.
    What at first seemed like a very good lens is now one I consider
    exceptional. In fact it is now my favorite for several reasons.
    First of all this lens consistently produces beautiful, even toned and complimentory Bokeh to my images. Bokeh is that term used to describe the elements of a photograph that are out of focus.
    This lens has an extremely short depth of field and performs best on close subjects after f/5.6.
    My observation of the VR function is this…. that Nikon intended that feature to be more useful when this lens is used for portraits. Up close and for sure when using the wider apertures depth of field is so brief that you need to stop down to capture the breadth of a bumble bee or the center of a flower completely in focus.
    In either application this is destined to be a favorite Nikkor lens for many of us. For me it is already!
    Focus is very fast and quiet. Build quality is solid! Hefty when held alone or nicely balanced on the D200 with MB200 battery dual battery holder.
    I like the lens shade a lot and the packaging is as always, first rate. Comes with 5 year extended warranty, velvet pouch and front and rear caps.
    If I could only take one lens this would be it without hesitation.
    Matches up extremely well with the SB800 flash units.
    I predict this will become a legendary portrait lens.
    Good luck!

    This review is from: Nikon 105mm f/2.8G ED-IF AF-S VR Micro-Nikkor Lens (Camera)

    Late last summer, I wondered why Canon and Nikon had such control over the DSLR market. I had been a Konica Minolta 5D user. I went to a camera store and tried the Canon 30D and a bunch of lenses… okay… Nice… Then tried with the D200 with among others the 105VR. I love to shoot macro/close-up and shooting with this lens just blew me away in the store. I knew then that I had to change and began the task of selling off all my gear and making the move to Nikon.

    The 105VR is such a a useful lens. VR is not that useful at macro level focusing. But this lens also doubles as a very good short tele, and VR is VERY helpful in those situations!

    In this crop of lenses for Nikon mount (Tamron 90, Sigma 105, & Tokina 100) there is two areas where it excels: 1) the 105VR is constant length and when you are this close to things, it makes a difference; 2) AF-S (quiet focusing). The others really do extend quite a bit, you’ll be surprised it you are not used to it. Optically it is superb as sharp or sharper than the competition. Solid construction, large snap on shade. This lens is a winner.
