Nikon 105mm f/2.8D AF Micro

Review Date: Dec 7, 2010 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $410.00 | Rating: 8 

Pros: 1:1, sharp, manual focuses well.
too much plastic for my liking, slow af. likes to hunt without limiter.

Great lens. This version doesn't have VR as some reviewers have claimed. This is the D version, which is the predecessor of the G which does have VR. Still gives sharp focus at infinity, and 1:1.

Nikon 50mm f/1.8D AF Nikkor

Review Date: Aug 10, 2009 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $118.00 | Rating: 9 

Pros: cheap and shallow depth of field, lightweight, good portrait lens on DX
plastic build, soft at f/2 and wider

Bought this because of all the reviews on it how great it was for the price. Yes, I must say i do agree; it is definitely worth the money especially like me if you're just starting out learning photography. Use it mainly for some outdoor portraits, and used once at a low light event. Images were soft at f/2 when looking at 100%, but you really can't tell if you're showing it to someone on the computer screen. For the outdoor portraits, f/10 worked great with lots of depth. Overall a great buy and a great starter lens. I recommend using this lens, then finding out what you're lacking in focal length.
