I have my new camera and I think its time for a photo thread. I have a ton to learn, but its going to be fun!
Its the 105mm macro lens. I played with it some when I was at the store but I did not have the 800 more to cough up.nice shots.... The D80 is a great camera.. I have always shot nikon digital. Is the macro a digital lens? If not it will be about a 160mm lens on your camera. Thats just ball park tho... I didn't do the actual conversion.... Congrats...
yeah its a great lens... I was refering to the conversion factor of your camera... because the sensor is smaller than full frame on all nikon DSLRs there is a conversion factor of 1.5x I think... it might be 1.6. So you take that 1.5 and multiply it by the 105 of your camera you get the actual focal length of that lens on your camera which would be 157.5mm. Basically, you get a little more zoom out of a lens with a smaller sensor.Its the 105mm macro lens. I played with it some when I was at the store but I did not have the 800 more to cough up.
I am working on that, there are so many new buttons on this thing I am re learning how to work it.Whoa! Nice shots.
Can you get more depth of field so more is in focus? I'd like to use a shot like that for wallpaper on my laptop.
