I hope to start a thread which displays Macro work from the manifold Macro lenses available in Nikon mount. All Macro lenses accepted, just note the one for which you are submitting a pic, by naming the manufacturer, focal length & max aperture. I will add a shot or 2 later in the day. The only restriction I would like to apply, is that the Macro lens be at least capable of 1:2 work, by itself.

Hey there Chad, thanks for setting us off on the right foot! That first thing looks like a crayfish, cooked and land dwelling. :biggrin: It has me laughing in a big way---what is it called? The bee and purple flower are sweet and so sharp--love the hues of purple in the flower. That spider looks great, though it appears to have entangled its own self in the webbing. :)

Great to see you bringing that Sigma in here Tim--it is known for its amazing sharpness. I've never shot with it, but hope to someday. A lot of people do not believe f/2.8 can work in Macro, but you show that thinking is misguided in the 1st shot--nice. That moth is performing a serious balancing act on the Echinachea tips too. :biggrin: The precise exif is very welcome--thank you Tim.

Thanks....it's actually a Red Cherry Shrimp (Neocaridina heteropod)...a freshwater dwarf shrimp that is common in the aquarium hobby. These shots are from my aquarium.

Thanks MR! Love shooting macro/closeup images. I seem to be moving more toward using the Sigma for true macro and the Zeiss for closeup, portraiture, landscape etc. The Nikkor 105VR is a great lens too just don't seem to be reaching for it as much since I got the Zeiss 100/2. That is a little jewel of a lens. I like to put the 105VR on the D300 and work with my grandkids so they can start to learn photography. It is really neat to see them experiencing the thrill of making a beautiful image and learning how to use a camera.

Let's see some more images people!

Keith, those are all nice, but the Green bug is sweet and the Sigma 150 is superb--love it!

Nikkor 28-105. No it's not a dedicated macro lens, but it does have a macro function:

Thanks Moony, the Sigma 150 is a classic. Love that lens. I would really like to see someone post up some images from the Nikkor 200/4 macro lens. I have kind of secretly lusted after that one for a long time. Maybe someday...

I know there is a lot of talk nowadays about the new camera bodies, but for me it is all about the glass. It's just such a rush when I get a new lens and go explore with it.
