In Topic: Macro Lens for Nikon DX

31 May 2013 - 05:32 PM

60mm is a good choice as a macro/fish portrait lens and, as Joe mentions, it is an FX lens. The 40 would be interesting for subjects like large groupers or similar which are a tad too large for the 60. We use the 35mm f/2 D for such subjects.

The 85 is a nice lens but it is only a DX optic.

The 60 will remain with you for a long time. Make sure you get the AFS version, far better AF performance.

Thx Steve,

The18-35 may be interesting since it may need a shorter extension. Price/quality ratio should be interesting to compare with big brothers. Fitted to a D600 it could become an economic alternative for many.

Anyone volunteers for the task?

Where is the GoPro when you need it?

Alex seems to prefer the 16-35 for u/w work. Did you have a chance to check that one out too. 60mm extension seems pretty long indeed. Great info. Thx for sharing.

AF-S is a no brainer unless you have a budget issue. MUCH faster AF.
