Wow, some gorgeous shots in this thread. I think the 105DC will go down in history as a very special lens, not for pure performance but for beauty and bokeh which is truly stunning. The current fashion is for highly corrected, high contrast lenses so I fear this one's lost on many.

At least for me, it needs a bit of thought to use right since there are so many effects you can achieve with it, and it needs the right lighting to really shine - I can see a lot of people getting frustrated with it and I know I haven't fully mastered it yet. I also see a lot of complaints about how easy it is to provoke strong LoCA effects, and it's a fair point, but I'm fairly certain that's by design as it's optimised to produce beautiful skin tones. I have many lenses that are technically better performers, but the 105DC remains my go-to for portraiture.

Where the DC shines is in being able to blur the foreground while shooting at f/4 so there is adequate DOF for the subject. Love it when there are flowers to add a touch of color to the foreground in an image with the subject in the middle ground and get the DC produced bokeh effect. It is my favorite outdoor lens for photographing individuals and couples.

there is another DC thread but your is welcome - Thx for illustrating what the fabulous DC lenses (alone) can do

there is also a long thread where people who do not understand the defocus lenses abilities go on and on
- might be fun for you to read


I wish Nikon would update these lenses. I have no need for them really, but admire them just the same
