Macro for butterflies: Nikon or Zeiss?
Aug 15, 2012

I know folks tend to gush about the Zeiss 100mm f/2 macro, but would you really want to take an MF lens into a Pollinary filled with butterflies that tend to always be on the move?

Seems like the Nikon 105mm VR macro is a better bet fo such shooting.
