Build quality

Like next to all Nikkor lens this got a really good build quality.


Conclusion

Great images and build quality and just a awsome lens!

I have a hard time finding anything I don't like about this lens.
But I would like to have seen it focus down to 1:1 on a full frame camera.
It's also big and quite heavy compared to a standard 50mm but next to all macro lenses are.

Thumbs up:
Image quality
Build quality

Thumbs down:
Would have liked it to focus down to 1:1 on a full frame camera
