Default Macro lenses make great portrait lenses!

My husband got me an awesome macro lens for Christmas because he knows just how much I love taking macro shots. I've discovered a nice side effect though, they take beautiful portraits too!

Just a little tidbit I thought I'd share, especially for anyone who has been on the fence about getting one of these lenses. Mine is the Nikon 105mm 2.8 lens with VR.

I use a Nikon D70 that I've had for over 5 years. I've been lusting for a D700, but that's still a ways off. I need to save up my nickels and dimes! Lol!

Yay! Thanks for posting. I just ordered the exact lens for my D300s so I'm glad to hear you love it. Great shots btw now I can't wait until it comes in!

You're going to love it! You should see some of the snowflake pictures I got last week, they're really cool.

The only thing is it takes a lot of practice to do the really macro stuff. The focus area can be razor thin, and sometimes just clicking the shutter, you move enough that it puts it out of focus. It's been a challenge, but a really fun one!

That really stinks. If it were me, I'd upgrade the camera first to something with more lens options. (like the d40 or a used d70 or d80) That's just my comment from the peanut gallery though, lol!

My 50mm was my favorite lens, until I got this one. Now this one is.
