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. The only thing I would like to see is for this lens to have a collapsible lens hood, at 1:1 the current one can get in the way. All that said one thing few comment about is it's lack of distortion.
Excerpt: I consider this a on the camera macro lens. For bellows work I use a lens with a aperture ring. I use this lens for food and product photography a good compliment to the nikon 105 macro. This is a good lens for focus stacking in the studio and on location. Great walk around lens focus is fast and right on the money. Boken is outstanding.Excellent people lens.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
Excerpt: I am a huge fan of Nikon equipment. I recently purchased this lens from B&H Photo. When I received the first lens, it wouldn't focus. Nothing I did would get it to work. I tried autofocus and manual focus. But the lens would never move off of the infinity setting. On autofocus, I could hear the motor inside the lens working, but the focal point never changed. I returned the lens to B&H and received a replacement in approximately a week. B&H's customer service is superb!
Summary: I bought this as compromise between other lens that were considerably cheaper or more expensive, and this lens does feel like a "mid range" model. The level of detail and how close I'm able to get to my subjects is astonishing. If you're interested in macro photography, you'll be able to do some amazing work limited only by your imagination.
