Remember that even though these are enlarging lenses, is is advisable to mount them in reverse when using them above 1:1. There are many Nikon reverse adapters out there (F-mount on one side, 52mm threaded on other side). Many enlarging lenses have a 40.5mm filter thread. My preference is to use a 40.5-52mm stepping ring (see eBay #110300237550) together with the above mentioned Nikon reversing ring. This makes a very nice arrangement.

The 105 mm f/2.8 VR Micro looks nice on paper, but using it in practice tells another story. The lens barrel is now massive and you need a big hand to get a good grip on it. VR does work very well, but unless you use a tripod you end up with a lot of close-ups of just adequate, but not perfect, sharpness. VR shouldn't be used with the lens/camera on a tripod so there is yet another slider to set correctly and Murphy's Law dictates you'll forget this when shooting someting of critical importance or using slow shutter speeds. Like the predecessor it uses the trick of shortening the focal length during focusing meaning that in a distance from slightly less than 40 cm to 31.4 cm (near limit), the magnification changes dramatically from 1:2 to 1:1.
Roger Johnson , Oct 11, 2005; 10:04 a.m. Hi, I just won an ultra micro nikkor 28mm/1.8 for 1/10 reduction, and need a camera for this. Could anyone give me some suggestions before I purchase? Also shall I reverse the lens or not for 1/10 reductions?
