Default Macro Fun

Seeing as how I poke myself every morning with one of these, I thought I would check out the pointy end to see how close I could get with my Micro Nikkor 55mm. Might be hard to see, but there is a double bevel at the sharp end.

Went as close as possible and then the crop shows one quarter of the captured pixels (full sized image on my photo stream at Flickr www.flickr.com/photos/honu_k21)

Looks like the subject and the photo are both very very sharp.

Ouch. I am doing everything I can to make sure I'm not doing that too some day.

Is that the f3.5 or f2.8 Micro Nikkor? Not that it really matters, LOL...they're both quite excellent.

You don't call it needle sharp for nothing!

It is the f3.5 Nikkor. It was the lens of choice back in the AV days, probably installed on 8 out of 10 copy stand camera systems and a favourite as an all round lens rather than a "normal" 50mm among the shooters I worked with back in the day...

Gregg, Marcelo I'm with you on preferring to avoid needing a needle. I need to take a blood thinner and in February my doctors decided to switch me from a pill (about 30 cents a day) to an injection (about 30 dollars a day).
And as sharp as that needle looks, there are days when I swear the pointy end ain't pointy at all!
