    I just received my new Nikon 105 VR lens last night and had a chance to go out after work and do a little shooting. All I can say is that I am very excited at having made this acquisition. Here are a few from tonights session! Please let me know what you think. I'm also not sure what the last plant is. Can anyone identify it?

  4. I really like the first shot. Great colors. I want that lens!
  5. Hi Robin

    Nice shots, the last plant would be a Begonia. They have so many leaf colours available it would be difficult to give you a cultivar name but from the look I would have to say it's a Begonia spp.

    I am JUST about to go and purchase my Nikon 105 VR Micro Lens today so I cannot wait to see what it does. Judging from your pics it's a goodie. I still love my Kenko tubes, they produce a whole different kind of image but I do a lot of Macro work and you tend to lose a lot of DOF with the Tubes. Now I will have both and I recently purchased the Nikon SB-R1 Macro Flash Kit so I cannot wait to get down to some serious shooting.

    I have not been on the forums for about 6 or 7 months :frown: .... things have been too hectic and life crazy but I am back and will start posting some shots soon, especially from the new 105 VR.

    Thanks for the kind words all. I was very happy with the results when I transferred the pictures onto my computer. Thanks to Mitch for identifying the last plant. After thinking about it I should have known that one. I really liked the patterns in the leaves. Thanks for looking!
    Mitch - I hope you enjoy your lens as well. BTW, these were all handheld with VR on. Sure makes a difference!
