Macro Photography – which is best – Nikon 105VR Macro Vs Canon 100L IS 2.8 USM Macro

Welcome to a bit of a geeky post… namely the comparison of the nikon 105mm VR and the canon 100L IS macro lenses…
First off here’s a photo of them both side by side…

Both about the same size, weight and feel. The nikon has the slight edge in focus speed, but, is less configuable in terms of focus limits of distance. (The canon lets you set a limit of 0.3-0.5m in addition to FULL and 0.5-inifity)

Looking at the results below – both are plenty sharp at f/4 (one stop down).

Of course the canon has the 21mpx image and the d3s has the 12mpx image, so it will be interesting to see how the nikon holds up when the 36 megapixel Nikon D800 or D800E comes to blandford studios in March.

See you all soon!
