What to buy? Nikon 105mm DC vs 105mm Micro VR

Featured Tuesday, 11 September 2012 01:17

Both great lenses - what is best? what to buy? I compare focus speeds, sharpness, bokeh and magic powers to give my recommendation.

    Thanks for the views on these lenses. I've been interested in a macro lens for sometime, particularly the Nikon 105mm VR but found a Tokina 100m micro in great condition second hand for less than a third the price of a new Nikon. It's screw-driven AF and hunts (which the limiter can reduce) but is incredibly sharp and I've since pretty much forgotten about the Nikon. A friend also bought the Tamron for his Canon which has much more impressive AF performance. So, here's the ask: I'd really appreciate a video on your views of the Nikon 105 (VR and D) vs the Tamron 90mm and Tokina 100mm.

The D850 is the culmination of decades of SLR refinement - the Z7 is the companies first full frame mirrorless - but it costs even more!

This thing destroys the competition in many ways - GH5 beaten for video and ergonomics and the fuji optics are up there with the best of full frame!

Nikon has been promoting the larger diameter and shorter flange distance of the Z mount, and how this will allow more lens designs, easier design, better optics, faster AF and edge to edge sharpness. But are they actually better?
