    So if you wanna get the most out of the magnification, go for the latest macro (AF-S 105, AF-D 200 f/4) which is 1:1 and the tubes to get 2:1, etc, etc right?

    Tats right, TC adds magnification and closeup filter another option, but Extension tubes best.. no additional glass

    Thanks for the clarrifcation. I've more or less rounded up the kind of equipments needed, your list setting forth as a prime example of what to get. Of course, my skill is still ... Good info to absorb nevertheless, very grateful for your sharing of knowledge.

    Older versions of nikkor micro lens reach a max of 1:2 ratio. You will require the PN-11 ext tube with the 105mm f2.8/f4 micro to reach 1:1. At 400+ bucks you can get a 2nd hand tammy 90mm which can already give 1:1 ratio

    EDIT: its F2.8 not f2. A typo there

    Oh, sorry if I misled you into thinking about me going into macro, I am interested but not now... Just absorbing all the knowledge for the moment... Yes, I'll concentrate on the 70-200 instead. 10-24 plus 70-200 will give me plenty of landscaping moments as well, apart from the other genres.
