Most of my focus so far has been on landscapes/wildlife (outdoorsy vacations are our norm), some typical kids/family stuff and occasional sports. But, I'm thinking it's time to "cross-over" to one of my other hobbies - model building. I primarily build 1/48 scale models - so a typical single engine plane model would be on a 12" x 12" base....... accompanying figures are about 1 1/2" tall. I'd be taking overall shots with close-ups on details. I suppose a parallel might be photographing insects or flowers, without the concerns of any movement. I'm looking for a lens that allows good close-ups. Current inventory is a 70/200 VR sports and all around (a bit heavy for carrying around on hikes though), 18-200 VR all around, 70-300 VR wildlife, 18-55 (kit lens replaced by 18-200), 50 f/1.8 I've gotten varied results with the 18-200 and 70-300 - but these are defininte "compromises" for such work. I am taking the shots from a distance for these lenses to work. The general buzz seems to recommend the 105 f/2.8 VR if $ isn't an issue, Nikon lists the 60 f/2.8 as appropriate for close-ups at about half the price but with less flexibility. Anyone with experience with these lenses, recommendations?
