It really surprised but it can lock focus very near. With a bit work on the manual you can really do some fun macro. I usually dont do macro. But it is fun to play around. Was trying out ideas for the reflection challenge here at the forum. Only problem is my tripod that really sucks. Especially for a 15 second long exposure. Wide angle is really fun to work close with also. The nikkor is really sharp. Fun to try out new things. Have anyone tried to reverse wide-angle zooms?

My other wooden friend decided to chill out with some candles at my kitchen table.
