Hello all, I currently use a rather old Nikon D90 with a macro lense, the AF-S Micro Nikkor 60mm f/2.8 G ED. While it's great for flowers and larger insects, I'm unable to get the level of detail I'd like for smaller insects. I can't afford to buy a new camera or macro lense at the moment, but I've heard about the Raynox snap on lens in 250. Does anyone have any experience using the Raynox 250 on a 60mm macro lense? Will I be able to achieve greater details and magnification? Any help of...
Hi, My apologies if this is a silly question or has been answered before. But I can't find the answer anywhere... I recently bought a AFS-60mm Micro 2.8G lens. I wanted to keep the aperture as 2.8, so I used Aperture Priority (A) mode. But when I tried to focus on an object (auto-focus mode), the aperture changed automatically (e.g. from 2.8 to 3.0, 3.2...). I also tried manual mode (M) and the aperture changed with the different focus distance as well. This is my first prime lens. So I am...
After having experimented with cheap macro alternatives like reverse lens, extension tubes and Raynox DCR-150, I had a chance to try out Zeiss macro lenses this Sunday, and I loved the experience. I think I'm mentally ready to invest in a proper macro lens in a couple of months, and I would like to keep it Nikkor (no third party lens). As I understand it, the Nikkor macros available here in India are the 40 mm, 60 mm, 85 mm and 105 mm. The 105 mm is reasonably expensive, so unless it offers a...

I am trying to figure out which lens, should I go for Infrant or new born photography. Nikon 60mm or Sigma 17-50mm ? Any suggestions? The reason I am more inclined to 60mm is because I can get some macro's too with it and Sigma is DX lens. I plan to FX pretty much next year so investing in DX lens doesn't make much sense. Any suggestions or tips would help. Thank you
Does anyone have a setup for using the Nikon 60G for slide copying on a D800e FX Nikon? The Nikon copy device says it is only useable on the older lenses. This is not just a filter thread issue but has to do with the front lens element being flush at the front instead of recessed like the older Micros. The 60G will focus to 1:1 without an extension tube. Thanks Bill G --Photo Geezer
Hello, I'm planning to buy a Macro cum portrait lens for my D5100. I've shortlisted two lenses: 1. Nikkor AF-S Micro NIKKOR 60mm f/2.8G ED (in used condition) 2. Tamron SP AF 60mm F/2 Di II LD [IF] MACRO for Nikon As per DXOMARK sharpness comparison (see below link) between these two lenses, although Tamron has max aperture of f/2, I cannot see any significant difference in f/2.8 to f/11 range (at center) (f/5.6 being the sweet spot for both the lenses). Considering sharpness at the corner,...
Hi, Just wondering, if I want to set the hyperfocal focus distance on a Nikon AF-S Micro-Nikkor 60mm f/2.8G ED to shoot a landscape, and my calculator software tells me the distance is 11.4 metres at f11, how do you set that given the lens barrel markings go straight from 1 metre to infinity? Can you manually dial the focus distance in on a D800, or would you need to measure out to the hyperfocal distance, and then focus on an object located there? thanks. --matt goddenhttp://www.golgotha.com.au
Hi, I’ve been shooting with my D3000 for several years now and I think it is time to reexamine my setup. I’m about to upgrade to a D3100/3200 or D5100, mainly for video and better high ISO performance. I’m not sure which direction I’ll go, but this isn’t my main concern. I currently have the kit 18-55 VR, the 55-200 VR and the 35/1.8. So far, 98%+ of my photos are with the 35/1.8. This is because I prefer to zoom with my feet, I like an unobtrusive look and I usually shoot in low light (often...

Hi Folks, Just wondering if anyone has a recommendation for a polariser for the f2.8g 60 Micro. Nikon make one which Adorama have at a significant discount from Australian retailers (AU$90ish vs 200ish). http://www.adorama.com/NK62CPLN.html While Nikon list this filter as a compatible accessory for my lens, a tech note (Article 21603) on one of Nikon's sites lists the following for 62mm filter: "Vignetting occurs with focal length shorter than 135mm" The 72mm version has: "Vignetting occurs...
