    I had been thinking of getting the late-1980s and relatively rare Micro-Nikkor 55mm/2.8 AF as a hypersharp lens that could do macro, but I got the opportunity to test the 1970s 3.5 and the 1980s AI-S 2.8 Micro-Nikkors at Glass Key Photo earlier...

    And the price was pretty decent too, $65!

    And a few at home. This shot of my laptop's key demonstrates the magnification level of the lens rather well (I used PK-11A and PK-12 together here)

    Plus my usual assortment of kpop test subjects, the first being 2NE1's Sandara Park in cartoon form, the second being toon Sunny of Girls' Generation.
