Hey Folks,

I'm new to the Nikon world and the whole "D" lens thing. What I'd like to know is if the distance information plays a part in the flash metering in macro photography. I'm gonna be getting an SB-28 for general flash as well as some close-up work and I'm trying to decide between purchasing a 105/2.8 D or non-D version. I couldn't find any info about this in the Nikon promo catalogs. So, I would appreciate it if someone could explain if the "D" lens would offer any advantage in terms of close-up flash metering.

Thanks so much,
