I finally got myself a proper macro lens a few weeks ago and I am in love!
I bought a Nikon 105mm macro lens and it is seriously fantastic. I had used a couple of these lenses before and it has been on my ‘to buy’ list for quite some time, but the actual purchase kept getting bumped by other lenses and pieces of equipment that I needed more. That being said, it finally made its way to the top of the list.
I am not going to go into a thorough technical review here, it isn’t a new lens and there are lots of other, better reviews online already. I will say, it is a beautiful lens and if you are thinking about picking up a macro lens, I highly recommend this one.
I have been playing with my new acquisition around the house and neighbourhood (and on a few recent jobs too of course!) and the photos here are obviously the results of that.
