A:AnswerThe AF-S VR Micro-NIKKOR 105mm f/2.8G IF-ED Lens is an FX (full-frame) lens. This lens can be used on both FX and DX format cameras. When used on an FX format camera the AF-S VR Micro-NIKKOR 105mm f/2.8G IF-ED Lens is 23°10′. When used on a DX format camera the angle of view is 15°. The maximum reproduction ratio of this close-up lens is 1.0x .
A:AnswerYes the lens is 1:1 and it is not a magnification, exactly. In simple terms it just means that the image you are shooting will be the same size on your sensor as it is in real life. Your sensor is about the size of a stamp in your camera so for most cases it is enough for what you are intending to do. Keep in mind you lose significant depth of field at high magnification. So much so that you can take a picture of an ant from the front where its head will be in focus and the other end will be completely out of focus. If you are looking for higher magnifications such as 2:1 or even 5:1 this will be even more pronounced. You would likely have to take multiple pictures of a subject and then stack them in post process with software. This will be extremely challenging with moving subjects, even slightly moving.
That said you can also use additionally you can add some nice aftermarket magnification glass that is pretty affordable for those occasions you would need it or even use extension tubes. I have both and have not found a scenario yet where I felt I needed more than 1:1 yet and I am over the moon happy with my lens. I included a sample image.
A:AnswerYes. The Nikon AF-S VR Micro-Nikkor 105mm f/2.8G IF-ED Macro lens is fully compatible with the Nikon D3200 DX-format DSLR camera. This versatile macro lens, while it's optimized for macro photography that offers a 1:1 reproduction ratio, provides crisp yet natural images in any genre of photography.
