    I have shot with Nikon for over 30 years and the 105mm AF-S F2.8VR is the best macro I have ever used. I used one on my D70, borrowed from a friend. I own the 60mm f2.8 AF lens, if price is an issue this lens will work well.

    Don't use Amazon, go to BH Photo. Better price and great service, been buying from them for a long time.

    Yes, those are the two we are talking about. With the 105mm you will not have to get as close to the subject as with the 60mm. It will focus faster then the 60mm, and it has VR.

    Just don't get the idea you can take pics like John Wilson no matter WHAT gear you buy!
    Can't be done...
