I'm watching a couple of lenses on ebay and noticed a couple of variations of the manual focus Nikon 55mm micro lens. I just wanted to know which if any is the better???

They are.....

Nikon 55mm f2.8 micro

and

Nikon 55mm f3.5 micro

Both are old Ai / AiS???

I notice there is a pictures thread for the f3.5 lens but wondered what the other was like in comparison.



Any advice would be appreciated.

Both are very good, and are a cheap way to get Nikon macro. The 2.8 is newer. A lot of the 55/3.5s are pre AI, and these won't mount on your D90, so you need to check this.

The 2.8 is prone to suffer from oily blades and tends to cost almost double. The 3.5 is a fantastic lens and can be found for bargain pricing.
