Nikon 105mm f/2.8D AF Micro

1988NCP_180
Review Date: Dec 7, 2010 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $410.00 | Rating: 8 

 
Pros: 1:1, sharp, manual focuses well.
Cons:
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

2137NCP_180
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
Cons:
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.
