Hi Phil & Thomas, and anyone else who reads this,
The Nikon 105mm f/2.8G VR micro lens seems to get great reviews from all owners and I'm thinking about getting it myself. Aside from being a macro lens for getting 1:1 pure macro, people also rave about it being great for portrait work and I wondered if you had found the same?
Would there be any reason not to recommend it? e.g. soon to be updated or has been surpassed.
I particularly like the idea of 105mm because you can still keep your distance from the subject, although I wonder how it can be such a great portrait lens on a camera with a cropped sensor. Wouldn't it take you too far away for portraits? I think if it could double as a great portrait lens then I'm sold
