    Macro Lens for D800E

    Hi All,

    I'm just changing from Canon to Nikon and I used to have a good 100mm macro lens in my Canon kit bag....so what would be a good choice for the D800E ?

    I'd also used to have a Canon 85mm F1.2......but found it a difficult lens to get consistent hit rates with given how easy it is to lose focus at F1.2.

    I use the Nikon 105mm f2.8 VR lens. Pretty good set-up unless you want to go longer with the 200mm f4 macro lens.

    Another that I use is the 90mm Tamron and I quite like it.

    I am very disappointed with nikon 105 micro 2.8G (on Nikon D800E).
    Maybe it's the right choice Sigma 180 f/2.8 EX DG OS HSM

    For my demands not sharp enough. Possible bad copy.
    Big problems with VR. I use it only on the tripod.
    For smaller items i use Zeiss ZF.2 2/100 Makro-Planar.
    For extreme macro (water droplets, insects) by my opinion should be considered only Nikon 60/2.8 G or Sigma 180 mm 2.8
