NIKON Z 7 + NIKKOR Z MC 105mm f/2.8 VR S @ 105 mm, 1/200 sec at f/16, ISO 200

We had an uninvited guest tag along with a bunch of mandarins my parents brought us to eat

A small but beautiful green bug was the perfect opportunity to try out two pieces of new kit I’d recently purchased

The first was the excellent Nikkor Z MC 105mm f/2.8 VR S lens. I already owned a macro lens which was one of the first lenses I bought for my Nikon D90 D-SLR 15 years ago. It was the extremely affordable (read cheap) but really quite excellent Tamron SP AF 90mm F/2.8 Di Macro 272E. It was optically excellent but really quite klunky to use and was Nikon F-Mount

The RRP for the new Z mount Nikkor 105 macro is AUD$1800 here in Australia so I wouldn’t normally drop that on what is essentially a single purpose lens that I might rarely use. However I managed to snag it for $1099 during an Amazon Prime sale

The second new piece of kit was a macro flash diffuser – the Cygnustech macro diffuser which is hand made by a local macro photographer here in Australia
