Rated 5 out of 5 by from None better This is the only Nikkor lens I have used that reminds me of the Leica glass I used to use. The results are unique. No it is not the "sharpest" lens made and the DC feature is somewhat obsolete with the advent of Photoslop, but pictures delineated with this tool at f2.0 are unlike any other.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolute Best Portrait Lens available "I've had mine for over a year now, and it never disappoints. Pared with my D800 you can get amazing portraits and the Bokeh is to die for. Solid construction. I love the focus/defocus control, never thought about the press conference advantage of this lens. Great telephoto lens and works well with my D300 DX to boot. Very sharp even at F2. Love it."

Rated 5 out of 5 by from "I bought this lens over 10 years ago. The construction is impressive. It is very solid. Using it with film it was difficult to appreciate the advantages of DC. With a DSLR the advantages are immediately evident. =- at F2 it is a fast telephoto. shooting in available light is good. - Using an f4 or f5.6 and moving the depth of field to the front is great for outdoor press conference shots. The speaker and podium are always in focus while the background clutter is not. Sure you can use manual focus and focus a bit in front of the sub"

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of the best portrait lenses I own! I use this lens almost exclusively for portraits. The glass is clear and crisp and it is very fast. This lens works great on FX frames, but it also works very well on crop sensors as long as you remember the 1.5X. I like the versatility the defocusing control gives you, but to be honest, I rarely use the defocus control unless I really want to soften the focus of a subject. I highly recommend this lens! You will not be disappointed if you know what you are doing. This lens paid for itself in the first hour of use!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Lens: Love everything about this Lens This is a great Lens. Things I love about this lens are: Picture Quality - Excellent, Very Sharp w/ great Color and Contrast. Build quality - Excellent, Very Ruged Looks and Feel F2 - Fast Lens DC Control; Dont really use but Nice to have Available Built in Hood - I like this Feature. Very Handy. I use this on a D80 and this Lens gets the best out of it. Produces some stunning Photos. Don't have any dislikes on this Lens, except maybe the Price.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from better spent on diffnt lens Nikon's sturdy composite build is great when you need a rugged field lens, but this 105 doesn't have many field applications. The weight and sluggish focus control negates the outstanding bokeh control. It's a soft lens on the open side, which again negates the extra price one would pay for f/2 control. It's a good lens in controlled conditions, but if that's how you shoot, you could get so much more for your money with something else. The back focus is the only selling point, and for me it turned out to be nothing more than a novelty spec (I'd rather just achieve a soft background the old fashioned way). The glass has difficulty in low light, and in some settings, renders the camera useless (because without focus the shutter won't release). The focus mechanism is way too loud...so if you're using this with a DSLR in movie mode, well, don't. Look at the 85 f/1.4 as a possible alternative (amazing lens).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful Lens I use this lens at my pediatric office. And with the help of Nikon R1C1 macro lighting system it gives me astonishing results. I've tried it with flowers and small objects and it is great. I love the ease of focusing, the sturdiness and the sharpness of the photos. I intend to use it as a portrait lens too and I can't wait to see the results. Super Lens

Rated 3 out of 5 by from PORTRAIT LENS This is a good lens if used within its limitations. It's not sharp below f/4 and the best wall to wall results are at f/5.6 or smaller. The soft focus ability, eliminates most of the need, (unless in low lighting), to shoot more wide open than f/4. For example, if I want more bokeh I'll open the (R) aperature to f/2 and shoot at f/5.6. Or if there's enough light, I can even shoot it in Program and select f/2 for the background. I bench tested this lens when I got to learn the limitations, which are stated above. It makes for a good portrait lens under most conditions. Keep the shutter at least one stop over LCF focal length and you'll be okay with this lens. The 180mm is better all around; but if you need a little less lens, this comes in handy.
