    I am quite pleased with my 105 2.8 AF micro Nikkor that I use on the manual setting. It can focus to 1:1 and also makes for a decent portrait lens.

    I recently bought a new Nikkor af 105 2.8G. I bought it to use with my D700, but find that I'm using it more with my N80. It may be heavy,but it is a wonderful, tack sharp lens. I use most of my lenses in manual mode.

    About 10 years ago I purchased a Kiron 105/2.8 Macro lens that goes 1:1 without an adapter (for my Nikon). It was only $75 and I thought of it as a stand-in until I purchased an actual Nikon 'Micro' Nikkor. A decade later I'm still using this most excellent Kiron lens. Unfortunately (for a buyer), they're going for a bit more than $75 these days but is still worth it.

    I also have the 55/2.8 and 200/4 Micro-Nikkors and find that I use the Kiron more often. With the 105, I like the distance between subject & lens and the way the background is rendered when compared to the 55. The 200 is nice but I continue to go with the 105. It's just right (for me). Good luck!

    With film, I used my 105mm Nikon macro lens more than my 55mm Nikon macro. With my APS sized digital body, I find myself using the 55mm macro more than the 105mm macro.

    It is worse than being screwed in regards to metering modes and what have you. It simply will not mount on some cameras without breaking them. You need a camera with no AI ring (e.g. F, Nikkormat, D40), or one with an AI tab that flips out of the way (e.g. late F2, F3).
