Re: Nikon 105mm micro VR or Sigma 180mm macro ?

Just as in "regular" photography, where you have short, mid, and tele lenses, the same applies to macro work. I have the same Sigma 180 f3.5 you have, as well as a Sigma 105 and Nikkor 60. They each have their purpose, and if I were to be limited to a single macro lens, something in the 105 range is the best balance.

That said, if I'm walking around with a single lens, I love having the 60 mated to an FX body, and the 180 is a blast for butterflies.

On DX, 180 or 200 macro is way long, and tricky to work with.
