Good for Nikon users, macro / close up equipment has always been one of their strength. I remember with nostalgia my 55mm /105mm AI-S Micro Nikkor combo, they were superb lenses. Great to see Nikon new releases, I hope they'll keep going as a company, it's a name in the photo industry I would not like to see disappear.

I have so many fond memories of Nikon cameras, as I have with with my darkroom days. I would definitely like to see them succeed!

The 105mm macro was a extremely easy pre order. I was expecting £1500-£1899, not £999. It is a shame it doesn't work with the TC's, but not surprising giving the Canon RF also doesn't work with TC's and that the focus is on the best image quality.

I really wish Canon would offer something similar! With macro I like small and lightweight. The smaller price tags help too!
I think Canon's new design will be great, I just wish there was something in a smaller footprint available with 1:1.
