Nikon 60mm f/2.8G ED AF-S Micro Nikkor review by polizonte
28 July 2015
Summary: If I can only carry one camera while on vacation or when weight limit is an issue, this is the lens I most often use with my D800e. Informal people photos, landscapes, and close-ups/copy-work, the 60mm G is a good bargain lens.
Pros: low distortion, good contrast, light weight, sufficiently sharp
Cons: If I can only carry one camera while on vacation or when weight limit is an issue, this is the lens I most often use with my D800e. Informal people photos, landscapes, and close-ups/copy-work, the 60mm G is a good bargain lens.
Excerpt: Using on DX format Nikon which gives approx. 90mm focal length. Very quick focus and quiet. Macro lighting for tabletop can be tricky due to the fact that at 1: 1 the subject is almost touching the front element. Solid construction. Autofocus/manual operation is very convenient.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
Excerpt: This is fantastic on the D800e. I strongly recomend placing protective filter on the front for walk around casual use as the front element is very exposed. I also prefer a rubber lens hood as it reduces hard bumps as with the provided hard plastic hood.
Excerpt: This Nikon micro lens is perfect for reproducing fine art work. The reproduction of the painting below was taken with a Nikon D800 camera body at an aperture of f/8, an ISO of 100, and Matrix Metering.
Excerpt: This is a very good lens length, it is very easy to hand hold and hand hold still. It is probably the best Nikkor macro of this range, I have owned the 55 mm 3.5 non-Ai, the 55mm 2.8 AIs and the 60mm 2.8 AF-d....all have been very good this one tops them.
