++ 55mm 3.5 Micro

I've got one too Mike - amazing lens from about 5' down to 1x1 (you need the M2 extension built just for this lens). Great bokeh. Also as easy to focus manually on the digitally optimized screens as its going to get.

28 mm 2.8 "close focus" is another great "in close" lens (like the 3.5 not as good at infinity) that has one often overlooked characteristic - it is nearly perfectly rectilinear. These are still in the Nikon catalog.

Build quality is off the charts on both.
