Closing Shot

In summary: did I like the performance of the 180mm and 100mm macro lenses? Undoubtedly. Am I going to acquire either one of them? Perhaps not just yet.

 

I had a fascinating time with the macro photos of the past several weeks and I hope you SC (and non SC) viewers had something to your liking.

What a final to present. LOVE it and I know what you mean by thinking about the purchase. I doubt if I want to buy a 18-300mm Nikkor. (I have now the 18-200mm Nikkor)
Great series a joy to watch.

Beautiful detail and DoF. A fine photo to finish with.

After such exploration with the lenses I am not sure how you can resit not keeping at least one of them...
Ayush Basu: Thank you very much for sticking out till the end of the series, CP. I do need to restrain myself as I get seduced by lenses easily.
Another goody, Ayush - I had teh 100mm lens with my 7D - excellent lesn. Sold both when I moved on to Fuji smile
