Re: You cannot go wrong with any of the micro-Nikkors

I am very fond of a Tamron SP 90 manual focus in nikkor mount - probably cheaper to buy than a micro-nikkor, and from comparative reviews, every bit their equal. Good working distance with than focal length, focus to half life size on its own and 1:1 with an extension tube. A little bit of chromatic aberation that is easily corrected in LR, but the micro-nikkors will have that too! Here's an example taken last night using a fibre-optic macro flash adaptor.
