Nikon 105mm f2.8 VR or 105mm f2 DC

Post Mon Dec 21, 2009 8:20 pm


I'm considering purchasing one of these for my portraits and "posed" wedding images, for using indoors and outside. I don't really need the macro facility but it would be useful for detail shots (babies feet, wedding ring shots, etc). The VR would be useful but not essential.

Does anyone have real life experience of using both of these lenses? The aspects of the lenses that I'm looking to compare are:
- bokeh
- is the DC facility useful and how much DOF would it give at f2
- how many extra stops does the VR give in real life situations
- speed of focussing
- general build quality, weight, balance (on a D700/D300)

Thanks
Tim
