studio still life lens
Apr 8, 2012

What is you best value nikon studio lens for still life. ??
I am moving from a continuous lighting studio setup at home
to a strobe setup...with softbox etc.
I am doing this to photograph small metallic object in a "table top" setting
and pack shots.

So the configurations of what I am shooting will be quite small not a lot bigger than a foot square....but often using an out of focus background a few feet away.

Im wondering what lens folks use for this type if work........Im using a D90
but Im happy to shoot with non auto lenses as well as auto.

A friend who is a pro told me to get a nikon 105 micro.....( possibly a good old one)

What do other people use and why?
Im Looking to buy second hand

thanks

barry

Nikon D90
