My AF Micro Nikkor 105mm f/2.8D at f/8 gives me equal or better image quality scanning film than the optics in my drum scanner.

I scan 35mm in one pass with a D800E or D850, MF film in 2 or 4 sections and 4x5 film in 4 overlapping quadrants, stitched in Photoshop.


hey Rich, thanks! I am going to look into it. Judging purely from the up to $250 used prices, would  this be comparable to the Canon 100 f/2.8 USM (non L) ?  The reason I ask is that I work with Canon EF/RF cameras  and if spending that much money, having a native macro would be more preferable. Any thoughts?
