It's true about the 105 Phil but that shot was taken back in 2009 and was only edited and posted recently. It was shot with a crappy Nikkor 24-85 F2.8-4.0 that I returned one week later for the 16-85VR. It was badly calibrated and couldn't get sharp focus at anything below F/5.6!
I haven't done any macro shots since despite having real capability now. Maybe this summer.
