Oh my! It is absolutley stunning Pa. I have often tried to capture a hibiscus such as yours, but have been woefully unsuccessful. If possible, could you post the EXIF data. I have trouble keeping the tip of the stamen and the delicate petals in focus. Thank you for sharing.
Pa, Glad you like the lens, I knew you would. Usually a lens of this wide range of focal length is considered sub-standard, not this Nikkor! I replaced the 28-200 that I sold you with a 70-200 f/2.8VR.
I have used your lens and the D70 to enlarge photos as large as 20x30 with outstanding results.
Glad you like it.
