I do mostly tabletop for ebay stuff.

Most times I will need to shoot a close up on a brand insignia and use my 200MM Nikkor Micro..

I shoot most of the remainder of shots with a 55 - 300 Zoom.

This is all studio work so the 300 is not necessary I can just as easily move in with a 200mm lenses.

Often the 55 - 300 does not focus close enough and the 200MM is obviously fixed length and more difficult to use then a zoon and often too long for the shots that I need.,

Anyway, I have been looking at the Nikkor 70 - 180 MM Micro.,
Youch it is expensive. In fact it looks like the price of my 200 has just dropped. It had been around $1600 and now I am seeing them for $1200 or less. Oh well.

Anyway, I was thinking of trading my 200 for the zoom .

GOOD OR BAD IDEA ?
