Ramblings – My New Macro Lens!!!!!


As of today I have a new toy!!!  

My husband, who has again spoiled me rotten, purchased me a new Nikkor AF 60 mm f2.8 macro lens!  Here are the first images I took – on manual focus no less!

Ohhhhhhhhh, I think I’m in love!

  1. I get it!!! I was the same way when I got my 85mm. It was love (still is). My husband was actually a little jealous, I think. 🙂 Enjoy! And thanks for stopping by and “liking.” Nice to see where people come from. Looking forward to more of your pics.

  2. Great start. I can’t afford a macro yet but have extension rings which I am still getting used to. I just love the detail that can be achieved. Looking forward to seeing more.

  3. Great photos! I got mine about a month ago and I’m loving it. Mine’s a Sigma 70mm 2.8, for my Nikon, so they’re close. I’d say you are doing much better than I did in the beginning! There’s such a fine line of focus on a macro!

  4. Beautiful shots…. makes me want to pull out my macro lens again… Haven’t hardly touched it since I got the 10mm wide angle… which is just SOOOOO much fun. Have fun with your new lens 🙂

  5. A little something to try. Get a fresh sunflower, forget the front, shoot the back in macro, right where the green meets the yellow. The focal plane will be nearly flat, so there will be minimal DOF issues. I bet you’ll love the results!

I'd love to hear from you! Please leave a reply.
