Nikon 85mm f/2.8 PC Micro


I saw this lens on the used lens section and i thought to myself a tilt shift w/ Macro capabilities I should get this... And the price was great also! The lens was rated at E, and just as the rating said "Lens Glass very clean - cosmetically may show slight wear and/or signs of use." so this was the case, glass is clean but the body had a few used marks. This didn't affect in performance whatsoever. I used this lens w/ the D300 and in comparison to the D2x it seems to meeter much better in the D300 than the D2x. I find myself using this lens so much after the purchase, it really helps in getting creative and producing new images w/ different feels... From Architecture to floral this lens can be used for multiple subjects. All in all this is one of those "BEST BUY" of the year amazing value for the price!
