Re: Macro lenses for Nikon

Jerry,
I hear about that problem too, thanks for reminding me.

Good to know, thanks for the info and the chuckle :o)
John,
I can get a Nikon 105mm f/2.8 AI-s, in great shape for $250.00, That is about the same money as the 40mm, and Norman Rockwell says about the 40mm that it is a great lens for everything but macro.

40mm in macro mode you are going to be very close to the subject, I would like a little more distance...

So if I can use the Nikon 105mm f/2.8 AI-s, have to focus manually, but for macro I think manual is better and the optics are great. As a bonus it is a good match for my beloved FM2 in case that film is ever available again.
The question is, would it work with the D80?
