    AF Micro Nikor 60 vs 105

    I currently have the 60 mm thinking of acquiring a 105. Anyone use or have both? Recommendations.

    I have always had 105 for the extra working distance, i do have a 60mm now but on my m4/3 its a 120mm FOV.

    Can't speak for the Nikors but I can comment on the focal lengths. I have the Tamron 60 and thought I would replace it with the Sigma 105. Love the 105 and the extra distance it brings but I couldn't bring myself to sell the 60. In certain situations, the 105 is too much. Shooting down on a tabletop, or top of a bush, I'd need a step stool with the 105 to get a few extra inches away. Glad I got the 105 though, no regrets.
    I must have a really good camera.

    I have a 60 2.8D… The difference, other than the obvious focal length is the minimum distance. The 60mm is about 9” whereas the 105mm is 12”… If I added the 105mm it would be most likely for other purposes and the macro functionality would just be an added benefit…As was already mentioned, depending on your Macro application the added focal length may or may NOT be a benefit…

    An extension tube (or multiple ones combined) with the 105mm should shorten your working distance if that is a concern. It would also make the subject appear larger in the viewfinder.

    I only have the 105mm so can't offer any input about comparisons.

    Hadn't thought of that. Thanks
