One of my favorite lenses One of my favorite lenses My copy of this lens was manufactured in 1984 and after having been beat and abused of many years it’s still going strong and used almost daily. As an evidence photographer specializing in arson the bulk of my work is macro and this is my go to lens. I also use it for portraiture and whatever else catches my fancy. It is clear, bright and easily focused on the modern DSLRs without a split screen prism. It produces beautiful images with excellent sharpness and contrast. It’s only drawback is that it is not a true 1:1 but rather a 1:2 but shill an amazing lens. Not should be made that some of the reviews here are not about this lens but one of the newer 105mm micros. This is a manual focus lens. March 25, 2012
Exquisite Sharpness This is one case where an older design is a superb design. I have used it for the past generation for everything from photographing dragonflies to flowers and for landscape photography in places like the heart of the Tibetan Plateau. It is sharp corner to corner, even wide open, will stand more accidental abuse than most lenses, and is bright enough in the viewfinder to work with effectively. Beautiful bokeh, for what it is worth. I would add the lens is also heavy, so think of it as a serious tool of glass and metal. But if you are seriously into macro, this is a life-long friend that will never grow old. October 13, 2011
This is the NON VR - NON AF version. It seems like quite a few of these reviews are of the VR/AF version of this lens... I just thought someone should point that out to anyone actually reading these because they want to buy the Micro-NIKKOR 105mm f/2.8. I bought this lens last month and I'm thrilled with it. Finally what I see through the lens is the product I end up with... what a lovely concept. The tack sharpness combined with the most beautiful and subtle bokeh never ceases to amaze me. Great lens. Even without VR and AF. September 2, 2011
Good sharpness and build quality. Very good portrait and micro lens.Excellent build quality. August 26, 2011
loveeeeee this lens! I purchased this lens a couple months ago and I love it! It's a bit expensive but well worth it. Also, it takes a little while to get use to but after that it's so fun to shoot with! May 11, 2011

Answer: 
I use this lens with PK-13 extension rings and even a Nikon PB-6 bellows and D7000 body and it works beautifully.
I compose at f2.8, stop down to f16 to take the pic.

Answer: 
Nikon has SB-21A and SB-21B. The difference between them is the controller unit: The SB-21A has an AS-12 for use with the F3; the SB-21B has an AS-14 for use with cameras with ISO hot shoes.

The SB-21B which has an AS-14 controller is compatible with the D90 and D7000 with restrictions.
For more information please see page 236 of the D90 user manual, and page 278 of the D7000 user manual.

Answer: 
Micro-NIKKOR 105mm f/2.8 will work with the D3100. Autofocus is not supported with other autofocus (AF) lenses. This lens does not have a built in Auto focus motor so to focus the lens with the camera, it will have to be manually focused. Please see page 167 of the User's Manual for the D3100 for technical notes on compatible lenses for the D3100 and their functions: http://www.nikonusa.com/pdf/manuals/kie88335f7869dfuejdl=-cww2/D3100_EN.pdf
