E-M5: a few more macros with the old Nikkor 105mm Ai-S
Dec 17, 2012

I have posted a few more images of flowers on my blog, taken with this old Ai-S model Nikon 105mm macro lens.  I love this old lens so much, and the effective field of view of 210mm is so wonderful for giving a good working distance.  I have also tried it on my new NEX-6 and find it no where near as good a camera for this old lens as is the E-M5, irrespective of the different crop factor changing the effective focal length to about 160mm.

If you are interested, (1) the images and (2) a few paragraphs of text and comparison with the NEX-6 are here:
