    Given the 1.5 ratio in the Nikon D70 am I correct in assuming that the
    closest focusing distance for macro lenses (Nikkor 105mm or Tamron 90mm)
    will increase. i.e. say the Nikkor gives 1:1 at 12" on 35mm will it be 1:1
    at 1'6" on the D70?

    Also, how good a general telephoto is the Nikkor? No test seems to give
    much mention to that aspect of its performance.

    Nope, focusing distance stays the same.
    What it boils down to is the object will appear more magnified on the
    smaller sensor i.e. it will fill more of the frame.
    I'm sure it's good if it is a "regular" macro lens that focuses to infinity.
    Some of the specialized "bellows only" type lenses don't work that great at
    infinity, especially at the wider fstops.

    Dont think I have used the lens for this much, I do however use it as a
    portrait lens with great success. I will go and do some test shots in the
    next couple of days.
