A camera shop in Phnom Penh lent me for a few days an oldie Micro-Nikkor 105mm f2.8 Manual Focus released since 1984. M is the only functional mode when it is on my Nikon D90, not to mention its manual focus. And what is worse, the light metering also ceases to function. That mean i need to see the actual light, set F value and guess the shutter speed. It is a bit pain, but the quality of the lens is pretty amazing, provided it was made more than 2 decades ago. Here are some shot i got.

I have just found that the cheap Nikon 50mm f/1.8 known for its portrait quality works just fine for Macro shots too.
