I'm looking to get a Micro lens to replace the 60 I recently sold because I want more working distance. I'm looking at the 105 2.8D or 200 AIS. I know the 200 has the ever so loved tripod collar and more WD, but the 105 goes to 1:1 and is a little less expensive. Which one is better for copying flat objects, such as slides? And I should get a large enough RR to copy sildes on DX with the 200 and PN-11????
