Originally posted by tsechien@Mar 30 2005, 11:34 AM Hey, the Micro Nikkor is twice the price of other 2 of the 3 choices. I have it so I am biased. Anyway (generally) Nikkors fetch better second hand value later on so it might be a strategic decision.
No need to mention that it is razor sharp on performance.
thanks chien! okay, prices... a second hand 105 costs a tad more than a new sp90 di....
some have said that the 105 is too sharp for portraits, is this true chien?

Let say you have RM2.5k to spend for a micro lens, will you still consider the Tamron? It is for sure Nikkor 105 is better than the Tamrons but how much better and whether or not the Nikkor worths its price, you have to judge it yourself. Let your mind to guide you to spend your own money!
thanks dude! if i had things my way, i'g be "m-powered" too, cuz i love the M's to bits!! haha!
i was in a similar situation last year...but money was an issue so i bought the SP 90 (that time the Di not out yet). I've no regret, it very sharp and contrasty (and yes u may loose friends if u use it for portrait). so either way its no right or wrong. If u got cash, go for Nikkor but if not SP 90 will more than suffice.
How about Sigma 105mm F2.8 EX DG Macro lens?
Any comment about Sigma lens? it priced almost the same with Tamron.
Can be consider too.....
I am looking for Macro lens too, and only afford Tamron or Sigma lens.
Still considering between these two lens.
Any comments from guru's?

You forgot 1:1 reproduction with an ED element, AF-S, and IS/VR. Plus it supports the new 'auto compose, expose, and shoot' system found in compatible Nikon & Canon Pro-level SLRs ('cause when you spend that much for a camera and lens combo that big & impressive you expect it to take excellent photos for you )
Of course the lens is white and the camera is black, the choice of real pros.
Sorry, couldn't help me-self :lol: :lol: :lol:
