Sports shooter looking to get more into macro and just had a nice, used Nikon AF Micro-NIKKOR 200mm f/4D IF-ED Lens fall in my lap.

I am adding a D850 to complement my D5 for sports and assume the D850 and 200mm f4 combo would be formidable gear additions once I master how to use them. I also have an old 105mm macro as my most used lens for underwater photography.

I have owned a Gitzo GT3530LSV tripod with RRS BH-55 Ball Head for some time. For flash, I have a Nikon SU-800, an SB 900, and two of my

Congratulations to you

A D850 + Nikkor 200 f/4 Micro should yield some awesome results.

I don't think you need a macro rail for the 200mm ... unless you intend to do stacks.

If you're looking for reach, and sharpness, you have the best tool for the job right now

If you're looking to do natural stacks @ 1:1, the best macro lens on the planet for that is the Voigtländer SL 125mm f/2.5 Apo-Lanthar, which has 630° of focus throw.

There is no other 1:1 macro lens on the planet that can touch it for this.

Thanks John. Curious to learn how the software stacking feature on the D850 works.

You are going to have to give us all that report

Won't be getting my own until around Christmas time.

I have not tried the "Focus Shift" feature on the D850 yet but reading the manual, it only works with AF-S and AF-P lenses. Disappointing my AF 200mm f4 D and AF 105mm f2.8 D will not work. I'll have to learn the manual way.
