The working distance is 29cm.
I use apperture priority and the F number was less then 8 becouse the weather was very cloudy.
Very slow moves with the cam, becouse of the shallow DOF and taking many pictures,becouse many of them turns out blurry becouse the camera shake.
Macro photography is a great fun!
Yes, I recommend the Nikon close-ups, very good quality-no purple fringing,sharp to edges and good dof - but for the baby grasshopper shots I miss some more magnification. Nothing is perfect.
