Nikon AF-S DX Micro NIKKOR 85mm f/3.5G ED VR

This Nikon AF-S DX Micro NIKKOR 85mm f/3.5G ED VR Lens is a DX-formatted medium telephoto Micro lens. It is ideal for extreme close-up and general photography including portraits. The lens will autofocus from infinity to 10.8″ producing a life-size (1:1) image.

The lens also features Nikon’s VR II (Vibration Reduction) image stabilization. This allows handheld shooting at up to 4 shutter speeds slower than would otherwise be possible, assuring dramatically sharper images. This is ideal for macro close-up work.

Micro Nikkor AF-S DX 85mm f/3.5 G ED VR – Review by photozone.de

All this comes with the added bonus of Nikon’s VR II optical stabilization. VR won’t really be of much use at life size macro shots but it’s a long way from infinity to the minimum focus distance and for most of that scale the VR is a surely welcome and useful feature.

Optically, the lens only has one issue, which is surprisingly high vignetting wide open.

Nikon 85mm f/3.5 DX VR Micro-NIKKOR ED review by kenrockwell.com

If you value size, weight, working distance and VR, get this lens only if you only plan to use DX cameras for quite some time.

For better optical performance, but lacking VR, the Tokina 100/2.8 is superior, and does work on 35mm and FX.

For serious macro work, I shoot the 200mm AF Micro every day in my studio because it lets me stand far enough away to get a proper perspective. Sadly, the 200mm Micro is far more expensive.

AF and VR aren’t helpful for serious macro, where we shoot with action-stopping strobes and focus manually.
