Micro-Nikkor AF 105mm f/2.8 D vs Tamron AF 90mm f/2.8 SP Di macro
May 25, 2012

Hi. I heard that the Tamron 90/2.8 is spectacular, and I read Photozone that this is sharper than the Nikon 105/2.8. It is famous for the bokeh too.
So I want to ask a few practical concern here:

  1. Which one has better bokeh? And how much better?)

  2. Which one focus faster? Is it significant?

  3. Which one will depreciate more? I plan to buy 2nd hand. But I heard that 3rd party lens will depreciate faster than Nikon's own.

  4. Any other difference (other than price) worth considering?

Thanks. I am new to Nikon. Thanks everyone's recommendation in advance.
