Revealed! Award-Winning Nikon Lenses For Wedding Photography
Most photographers would agree that investing in quality glass is essential and these lenses will last for many years and can make all the difference in creating truly sharp images. Wedding photography is fun, time consuming and last into the evening. As a photographer, adequate preparation and using the right gear are both essential. Inside the church most times, the lighting is not ideal, suffice to say that having lenses that perform well in low light is the best way to achieve sharper images. For instance, F/4.0 may not be fast enough to capture the fast moving activities during the wedding. Keeping an aperture of F/2.8 will guarantee that you will have fewer blurry images.

Nikon AF-S VR Micro-Nikkor 105mm f/2.8G IF-ED Camera Lens
The AF-S VR 105 f/2.8G IF-ED brings the benefits of vibration reduction (VR) to the domain of Macro photography. It offers high-resolution, high-optical performance for both digital and 35mm film format SLR cameras. This lens incorporates Nikon’s second-generation vibration reduction system (VR II) that allows flexible hand-held shooting by stabilizing the image to the equivalent stability of a shutter speed that is 4 stops faster when compared with a conventional lens. The SWM (Silent Wave Motor) and IF (Internal Focusing) ensure quiet autofocusing with quick and convenient switching between autofocus and manual operation.
Optical performance is enhanced by an ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass element that minimizes chromatic aberration, and Nano Crystal Coat which drastically reduces flare, enabling finely defined, clear images. For things like wedding rings, this is a great choice of glass to capture the details.
