Conundrum 105DC vs the 105 micro vs my 70-200 F2.8
Dec 9, 2012

Keen on the 105DC but a few questions, Is the focus when set to 0 DC even across the frame? If it is going to be a general purpose short tele I want focus uniformity. Will this lens accomplish this?
I really would like a nice portrat lens BUT I obviously I want something a bit more multipurpose as well.
The F2 aperture is a BIG plus for me.
Are there any other options? I am close to buying neither and just get the Samyang 80 1.4 for cheap. But it really is a bit short and AF would be nice.
Now the 105 AF-S micro, I am really set to buy this BUT the F2.8 aperture puts me off.
Do any of the Sigma's measure up? comparison?I have a 70-200 F2.8 already and am expecting a step up from either of these 2 lenses on the D800. Is that going to happen?
