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.
