The Nikon 105mm f/2.8 macro lens has been a real pleasant surprise to me lately. I've been using it on the Nikon D600 which I bought this last December and have found it to be an exceptional pairing....after I adjusted the AF (Auto Focus) fine tune to -20. Before getting the D600 I used it on the D7000 and found autofocus to be hit/miss, and more miss than hit....despite having the AF fine tune adjusted to -19 on that camera. Note: I use LensAlign Mkll for calibrating and then shoot real world photos for verification, so these adjustments were not mere guesses.

With springtime here it's been enjoyable to see all the critters come out again. Birds at the feeder, squirrels running through the yard, robins looking for insects, hawks flying overhead, etc. To help capture some of these moments I purchased the Nikon 300mm f4 last year. It was the most affordable and best telephoto lens I could find that didn't cost $5K +. Mounted on my D7000 it is equivalent to 450mm focal length.
