    This is the second 105/2.5 AIS that I own and the oldest of the two. I think it works pretty well coupled with the D2X, giving beautiful soft backgrounds and sharp images.

    This orchid was taken with the lens stopped at f4, using only natural light.

    I agree. This is a fantastic shot. Such simple beauty.

    Thanks for sharing,
  3. Now that's one sharp shot. This lens is an all-time winner - but credits go to the photog:wink: .

    I have not met anyone yet who does not love this lens. I have two and both are gorgeous. You have certainly shown it to fabulous advantage, thank you.
  7. What a beautiful shot.
  8. Olá Roberto ! I didn't know this lens, but when i see the results, i guess i'm going to shop for one... that'll help using my Fuji S2 in "all manual", now that the aperture mecanism is totally broken -and it'll cost a fortune to have it replaced-, but it still work fine with AIS lenses !

    Very good framing and good use of available light ! That's a good eye !

    Um abraço cordial,
  9. Superb picture, sharp and the it shows all the details of the flower.

    Thanks for all the positive and inspiring comments.

    This weekend I will attend to the annual National Orchidophile Association Show in my city and will be interesting to compare the 105/2.5 with my dedicated macro lenses.

    Will be posting some photos saturday.

    Hope to talk to you soon.
