I have a friend who is going to Hawaii this month that won't be coming back with photographs nearly as beautiful as this!

Thank you! This garden on the east side of the Big Island is really incredible. I came unprepared. I had my D300 and the "walk-around" 18-200mm Nikon lens that I bought 8 years ago with the camera. There were gorgeous flowers but the light was low and I should have had my 105 mm Macro lens. Anyway, I was able to get a few good shots in a visit that was too short.


Woody and Mike,

Thank you so much!

Richard, I have the Nikon 18-200 mm lens also. I have considered buying the Nikon 40mm macro lens but not the 105mm macro. Your thoughts?

Thank you!!!




The 18-200 on my D300 has served me well as an all around lens when I have to choose one to carry with me easily, but it has it's drawbacks, especially at the longer end. I love my 105 macro, which is also excellent for portrait shots. I have no experience with the 40mm macro and I guess it depends on what you are interested in shooting. I have a 30mm Sigma f1.4 that is excellent as a "standard" lens on the DX body. Browse the discussions in the Nikon forum about your possible choices and you'll get a lot of good information.
