Getting back into Macro and just picked up a Nikon 105mm macro D lens.

Want to start using manual focus and wondering if anybody can recommend and good site or has tips as to equipment or methods that work best. For instance, I have been told a focus rail helps with manual focus macro work....any thoughts? and where might I find a decent one or are there any to stay away from?

thank you.

I have the Velbon Super Mag Slider from B&H ($115) coupled with my Tamron SP AF90mm F2.8 Di macro lens and it has added greatly to my appreciation of macro photography. It does not have scales but it is built very well and holds it position with each turn of the knob. Check user's reviews on B&H and Amazon.

Good luck!
