Nikon AF-S 105mm f / 2.8 G IF ED VR Micro review

The Nikon AF-S Micro 105mm f / 2.8 G IF ED VR sits on the top rung of Nikon’s extensive range of F-mount Micro lenses, which includes old-school 60mm, 105mm and 200mm ‘AF’ lenses in which autofocus is driven from a motor in compatible camera bodies. There are also 40mm and 85mm AF-S DX (APS-C format) options, and FX (full-frame) compatible AF-S 60mm and 105mm lenses. The AF-S Micro 105mm VR Micro is the pick of the crop, and the own-brand Nikon lens we’d choose for shooting on DX as well as FX camera bodies.
