Looking into getting one of these, but how does it perform at Infinity ?...want to use it for landscapes, has anyone used it on long distance ?

It is a very sharp lens.  It works fine at infinity but I prefer the previous model without VR as it is less bulky.

Heya JK, but it is because of the VR that I am interested...the 70-200 f4.0 is a tad too bulky, hence my looking into this one, apart from that, is the AI-s a " better " sharper with nicer " bokeh " lens ?

Bokeh is something that changes with conditions.

The lens barrel is much larger and the lens is more bulky.
I bought it as it was AFS and so worked on my Z7 with FTZ adapter and D850.

Yes, it is a Big un` , especially with its sunshade, and what a huge afair that one is ,a bit odd , considering that Nikon is notorious for supplying short shades as Nikon consideres their lenses to be " Flareless " ..If I get it then a 3rd party sunhade will be mounted,so ,how Flare resistent would you say is the Micro 105 then ?...could I get away with a short shade ?...you know, a Wide angle shade for instance ,..and how is Infinity compared to say,your 50 f1.2 ?

You might want to read Birna's review here -  http://www.naturfotograf.com/lens_spec.html

These old reviews of the Nikon lenses by Birna are very useful references.
I think that we seem to be at a point where the new mirrorless cameras demand a revision of the old lenses designs or completely new designs to allow for the very small distance between body flange and sensor.

Does the FTZ adapter not deal with that - I can't see Nikon revising old designs to work with the new cameras, surely that is the job of the new Z lenses?

Nikon say the newer lenses are better.  I dont test in a lab but I dont see any big differences that forces me to change/upgrade to new versions.   The new S line  100-400mm for the Z mount cameras is a temptation for me if I stay with Nikon into the future and I would like to refresh the 70-200mm f2.8 with the new S line camera.

I have a Z7 that I really like but the Z9 doesnt fill me with joy due to its size but the specification is good.  The rumours of the Z8 are much closer to what I would want.

I was hoping for a comparison between the Micro 105 and the 50 f1.2 as I have the 55 f1.2 which is for all practical purposes of intent similar to the 50f1.2,that would tell me more than a review standing on its own,..but thanks anyway.
