    AF-S Micro NIKKOR 60mm f/2.8G ED
    I also have a Z 105 MC but it cannot focus that short as the AF-S Micro 60mm can do. I use it for duplicating slides together with the FTZ adapter.

    Review of Product: SB-700 AF Speedlight
    1. Re: SB-700 AF Speedlight

      the next item on my list! it a few weeks ago. still trying it out. tilt downwards is handy, as is the large screen. i dont use flash if i can get away with it so it will take time to get to know how to get the best results. keeping my sb400 though! built-in bounce card and diffuser are rather flimsy, battery life is quite good. not as tight a fit to the hot shoe as i would have liked. would have been nice if they supplied the cover to disable pop-up flash (as used with the r1 set up) for remote use. bulky carry/storage case, nice unit though!
