No but I wondered why Nikon has nothing like the MP-E 65

There was a thread regarding this here on DPR, within the past five years. Keep in mind that the MP-E 65mm, even on Canon cameras, cannot focus to infinity, and is normally used on a focusing rail. This is not really for chasing bugs around the garden.

I did a pretty thorough search on this awhile back and came up with nada. Plenty of reasons why it cant work.
