    This is my background eraser! :D I like cataloging my glass art outdoors in the sun whenever possible. With this lens, it doesn't much matter what is behind my subject - the 105mm will turn it to silk. All the while the subject is rendered as faithfully (and sharply) as I could possibly want.

    micro105demo-2. micro105demo.

    Also great of course for retailing smaller items - I don't have to get awkwardly close.

    Great pieces! The only thing is if this forum gets yet another interesting photographer shooting a style I haven't yet tried, my wallet is going to kill me!

    But seriously, mid-tele is something I'm very curious to try but just haven't found the time. Keep them coming!

    You're very kind. My real photo passion nowadays is for landscapes. But when my online store is basically my third job, I can at least apply my photo-enthusiasm toward some snazzier listing shots.:)

    There are cheaper alternatives to this lens - seems like lots of folks put stuff out in the 100mm neighborhood.

    Some stopped-down samples

    Hand-held outdoors at f/5.6 is all very fine and well, but in a controlled setting on a tripod, stopped way down to f/22 or f/32 this lens is a whole different animal. (Don't get confused - pictured are some new lenses I just got, shot with the Micro-Nikkor 105.) I really like the crispy detail and faithful, undistorted renderings.

    I have the old version of the Fotodiox "Pro" but there's plenty of other Nikon F to NEX adapters out there.
