I love the lens, and in fact, I use it for all kinds of stuff besides macro, (like two weddings in the last year), what with the f/2.8, fantastic bokeh, and VR. Believe it or not, it also makes a neat lens for street photography
I agree that it's a very nice lens. Isn't it a little too close-up for street photography? Or do you simply step back further to get the shot you want? Thanks for sharing/tips on the other uses of the 105VR.
I posted a series last year in the B&W film/digital forum of an evening on Beale Street in Memphis and most the shots were with the 105mm VR. Below is post # 4 of that series - all images with the 105.
