Yes it will. They ale slower on AF, (uses the old "screw drive"), but you'll want to be in manual for real close-ups anyway.

The only 105 Nikons I’m seeing in the bargain basement are F/3.5-4.5 Will that apature work well for reef tank photos?

Those aren't true macros. They don't have 1:1 magnification. In other words, you won't be able to get real close.

I am also thinking about this https://www.newegg.com/Product/Produ...25&ignorebbr=1
This would be my first Dslr Cam and I've read this would be a good entry setup? I am such a noob and getting a little overwhelmed.

Hello everyone. I'm new to this forum but I can add some insight about macro photography from my experiences. Bryan Peterson mention's the Canon 500D Close Up Lens (diopter) as a "poor man's macro" if attached to a telephoto lens. My poor man's macro is an older Nikon 80-200mm mounted on a Nikon D600 full frame. Good thing about this Canon diopter is that it does such a great job taking close up photography that you won't even know it's a diopter. That and it isn't camera body specific... it's available in different sizes to screw ontop of any of your telephoto lenses. My photography club shares a 77mm one... I'll be borrowing it this weekend and taking some shots of my tank. Hope this helps member's like me on a budget that can't afford a true macro lens but want good quality at an affordable price.
