Anyone care to share experiences with the Nikkor AF Micro 105/2.8 D on a full frame body?
I have used the 60mm AFS Nikkor and it focuses very fast and is reasonably easy to use but I am disappointed in the background or Bokeh in some images from the two times I have used it. I’ve only had the housing in the water a few times as I am a relatively new diver having just passed 50 dives.
I assume the AFS VR version has improved focus speed but the D version is the one I own and the optical quality is very close. My concern is during topside use, the AF 105 f2.8D has a tendency to hunt and it can be a slow process while the lens moves the focus from one extreme to the other and back again before finally locking on at times. By then a skittish creature would be long gone. With a good focus light, even in the dark green waters of Puget Sound, I am hoping it will be up to the task. I can see times and subjects I would want the option of the shallower depth of field I would get with the 105 D and the additional working distance.
