When I first looked at this I thought, wow, a native lens I might be able to afford!
Then it hit me.
It's only f3.5 fast.
It doesn't have OSS.
Not knocking your post, just not the lens for me I guess.
I recommend you look around and find a used Nikon Micro Nikkor 55 2.8 lens. Pure manual focus, but it is sharp sharp sharp. No tape required.
(Last I checked the price of that stuff I couldn't believe what they wanted for a roll of it.)
The open box ones are gone it seems.
Anyway...no OSS as mentioned.
And a review stated the AF doesn't work when up close. So in order to shoot macro, it's DMF in order to focus.
And to get 1:1, you need to have it 30mm from the subject.
The review wasn't positive on this lens. I thought about it too at 132 bucks. But given it can't AF while used on macros, no point.
