Re: Starting macro gear


105 VR is a competent macro. I would suggest just go shooting and see then see what kind of problem you ran into before further purchases. Everyone has different shooting habits, some use super sturdy tripods, some use monopods, some rather use flash/macro flash for freeze the movement, and there are people who specificly use DX bodies for macro (to gain more DOF).

I once use 60mm (sometimes with 2X TC) on film to chase bugs... not very pleasant way to work but works.

Haven't done insects macro for a while... these are taken years ago back in the days I was a newbie in photography. Some of them are scanned from dirty 4x6 prints.
Camera : Nikon F90X
Film: Kodak/Agfa 100/200 (negative)
Lens : AF-D 60 2.8
Flash: SB-22
