Nikon 40mm Macro Lens image Quality?
4 months ago

Does anyone have any experience with this lens on a D5100 or the D5300? Any images to share?

I want to use it to photograph tiny native orchids in the wild but I can no longer get down to ground level{arthritis} so would be shooting in live view mode and using the swivel screen to get the shots using a small tripod while sitting on a stool. I have the Nikon 105 macro but it is a bit too big on the little camera to manage well on the small tripod. I have a D800 but it does not have the swivel screen.

If the 40mm lens gives good results then I would be upgrading the little D5100 to the D5300 next spring. Any help or advice appreciated.
