Sigma macro's AF inaccuracies call for new optic!
#24
Ok after a complete purge on TPM lens profiles in both the D750 and the D500 and with very promising results from the Sigma 150mm macro......

.....I now have a large hole............an optical one that is!

I go from 85mm to 150mm (ignoring focus breathing of which the macro does some of)

There's just a lack of affordable choice FLs in between.......we have the two Nikkor macro 105mm F2.8......the D model is by all accounts a superb lens with a complicated cam system of compensating optics and is the most affordable
...the AF-S model has VR which would be nice......but they come in at 500 euros +.
The AF 105mm F2 DC is also a nice lens, the minuses are price 600-700 euros and apparently it's a little soft wide open.

So on the affordable 105mm lens front there is the Sigma 105mm of which I already tried and the Nikkor 105 macro.

I've found one at 270 euros........and so it goes on.....
