Nikon 200 F4 AF-D (The Micro Machine)

Discussion in 'Lens Lust' started by naknak, Aug 13, 2009.

  1. First off thanks to "moffo," on the boards who made me very happy by giving me a great deal on a perfect condition lens :biggrin:. I was struggling to decided between the Nikon 105 VR, Zeiss 100, and the Sigma 150 for macro use. After much research I had my heart set on the Nikon 200 F4. I'm still new and learning the whole macro experience so any help would be appreciated :smile:. Here are the preliminary pics, all handheld with no crop, enjoy.

    Glad to see the lens in such capable hands. When the temp here drops below 105, I hope to get out and shoot a little myself.

    It "only" stops down to f32? Is it full 1:1 reproduction?
     
  17. Actually it's f32 on the ring but f51 when at 1:1 if I recall. I have very sharp large prints stopped down to f32...45 starts to get muddy if you need true crispsness.
     
  18. Yes it is full 1:1 :smile:
     
  19. Doing good! Nice shots.

    Great captures and the 200mm micro looks like an awesome lens to have in one collection.
