My New Macro Lens

Marbles 3, photo by Harold Davis.

I’ve been having lots of fun playing with my new AF Micro Nikkor 105mm f/2.8 macro lens.

Actually, the lens isn’t new – I got it used on eBay, but it might as well be new, since it is in perfect condition.

This is a beautiful lens. It may be the finest macro lens I have ever owned, and the statement includes my years as a photo pro back in the days of film. I’m so excited to own it!

One of the cool things about it is that it gets out of the way of itself. Meaning, the 105mm focal length has a 35mm equivalence of 157.5mm on the Nikon digital SLRs, so this is a moderate telephoto. You can be a nice distance from the subject of your macro photos.

Here are some more marbelous macro photos (yuck, yuck!) taken with this great lens:
