    Hi Graham, I ordered the Nikon 105mm Micro Lens last night, from Amazon warehouse deals for 591. Not taking any photos at the moment as I'm very sore from my fall, hopefully I will be out next week trying out the D600 and 105mm micro.

    Hi Mike, you are spot on there, I've learned a lot since getting advice from Graham and others on this site. And I've got loads more questions to ask.

    Hi Graham, the 105mm VR micro lens from Amazon was returned because of damage to the packaging. I've just seen the older D series version for sale do you know anything about these. Its still a 105mm, no VR and aperture settings on the barrel.

    Hi Tillerykid, I use the earlier sigma 105mm f2.8 lens, as far as I have found it is a superb lens, for most of my macro shots I will use it Tripod mounted with a remote release, this means the vr is redundant. As Graham says you are better manual focusing, and setting the camera in manual, this way you have full control and no shake, if that is possible....Mike

    Hi Tillerkid
    An AF D lens will auto focus on your new camera as long as it has a built in motor (I'm sure it will), I do think though your better to manual focusing on macro rather that auto

    This is a personal view but I don't think VR is as important on a true macro as on any other lens, that said I would rather have VR and not need it as need it and not have it , My Sigma 105 doesn't have VR and to be honest I'm really pleased with it. Regards ... Graham
