"RE: Help with focus question"
Zoom lenses are a compromise in design. I would look at using a prime lens designed for Macro use. You can rent Nikon and other lenses to test which lens would best meet your needs.You should also look at for an online calculator, chart creators, and articles about DOF. The calculator will indicate the focus point distance, front and rear acceptable focus distances.
