    Try to use ones of a 'standard' lens design, i.e. double Gauss derivatives.
    They keep up good performance with changing image scales, and offer excellent quality when used close up.

    And the thing you mention: longer lenses offer more working distance. But they also require more extension.


    When you're not metering through the lens, you ned to know that asymmetrical lenses (telephotos. As you have found you won't be using the retrofocus wide-angle designs, the other asymmetrical ones) require more exposure compensation than you would think.
    You need to find out the pupil magnification of those lenses to do the sums correctly and work out much more.

    The 50 it is then, a Nikkor 50mm Ais, it should not be too complicated the first time around. Thank's a bunch!
