As I have said before , I enjoy macro photography. So what this means is I have more that one lens for macro photography. The Nikkor 105 mm was the macro lens I use when I want compression, in the image, but when I want a “normal” macro image I use the Nikon 55macro f2.8. It’s was originally introduced in 1979 and is one of those rare Nikon lenses , like the 50mm f1.2 that is still made today. People would argue that there are better macro lenses made today, but this is a tool I like to use, not just for macro.
I put this lens away when I started the We35 project. Taking it out again was fun. It is a great lens for photo meditation. Walking around with it in the off hours was a bit of a laugh I almost forgot how much I enjoyed this lens. Everything about the Nikon 55mm macro 2.8 just works for me, at times. I don’t use it every day, but there are occasions where it’s absolutely brilliant. It’s more of an artisan type lens, not meant for everyone.
Here are some images from my refresher time with it
