I had a pretty sweet Nikor Nikor Micro lens back in the 80s (pretty sure it was about 100MM and somewhere around F2.8 or so, maybe even faster, had a huge piece of glass in the front) but sold it a long time ago fo fund some other projects.

Here are close focus shots of a Hi-Viz Rusty Spinner using my 24-85mm at the 85 mm end and the 105 mm Micro Nikkor. Both were shot using the on-camera flash at f16. The only issue I have with the 105 is that at close focus, it has a tendency to hunt. It's a little annoying, but you can fix that by using the AF Lock or by going to manual focus.





Let me know what you think.
