Zeiss 100mm f2 vs nikon 105mm Vr or/and others
Oct 1, 2012

I have the Nikon 60mm and the 105mm VR macros plus the sigma 150mm(have dx, but mostly fx). I get along great with the 60mm and the 150mm but just can't seem to find the magic with the 105mm. I've looked at my focus and it seems to be right on---------------so------------I'm thinking of moving on to a Zeiss 100mm F2. I've even thought about the 85mm F2.8 PC-E and it is still a possibility, abeit everything is a bit pricey here.

Now I don't really do macros, it's more of a walk around looking for tight shots of plants, abstracts, etc. so a 1:2 or 1:3 workks out fine. Anyone used both, impressions, is the 100mm zeiss worthy of its' being over twice the price????--I realize that's a bit of a loaded question "is it worthy", we all know we pay for that itty bit, just looking for a fun lens in that arena----------ron s.

Keeping it sane in an insane world is an inconvenience at an inconvenient time!!
