Help with deciding on the 105mm Macro VR vs 105mm DC
Nov 9, 2009

I plan on purchasing one of these lenses to use on my D300. I'lll use for many things including shooting hockey games from behind the glass. I like the VR lenses but I'm wondering if the macro-ness of the lens will cause it to focus on the glass about 6-12 inches in front of the lens instead of the player 3-20 feet from the lense.

Anyone, any thoughts?
