| p.1 #19 · A Little Love for the 105 f/2.5 |
Very nice shots and great lens. Anyone have any samples with the 105/1.8?
When I was hunting for the /2.5 version I came across the /1.8 and at $450 it was a little too rich for my blood at the time. It's also a lot larger lens, but some have reported liking it better than the /2.5 version. I haven't seen one up for sale here in Seattle in quite a while, but I keep a lookout for one in case a good deal comes along.
What "some" is that? I've never read a bad word about the 2.5. The 1.8, however, has a mixed reputation.
I've heard the same thing. When I was first building my Nikon kit I was looking for "good value for money" and everyone said this lens is worth having. The reviews I read were less complimentary about the faster lens, so it seemed a no-brainer for me. Nothing about the lens has disappointed me. On the contrary, when I first shot with this lens I was blown away that such quality could be had for so little money. I loved those thousand dollar Canon L lenses I owned, but this lens gives away nothing to any of them, except perhaps the 85L. It was when I shot with this lens that I truly got excited about my Nikon adventure. The rest is history...
