FOCUS ISSUES

Buttercup, B&H Photo
4 February 2015
  • 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.
  • Pros: Lightweight, Nice Bokeh

Pretty good; some chromatic aberration

Aaron Shaver, Amazon

  • 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.

Nice Macro Lens (well built) with very good image quality.

  • Summary: This is the first Macro (or in Nikon-speak, Micro) lens I have owned (in 45 years of photography). What a treat this lens has been. It's also been a new learning experience for me. I think if this lens were image stabilized, then I'd certainly give it 5 Stars!

Exactly what I wanted!

Mike M, B&H Photo
13 April 2014
  • Excerpt: I'm using this lens with a D5200 body so the effective focal length is 90mm. This review applies to use with any Nikon DX series camera. This is perfect for closeup photography of smaller items for .. with a comfortable working distance of approximately 30" for a coffee cup sized item.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Strong Construction

f/2.8 confusion explained

fpink3, Adorama
26 March 2014
  • Excerpt: The prominent negative review for this macro lens cites that it is NOT f2.8 and the owner returned it. Apparently, this user did not know that Nikon, alone among camera/lens manufacturers, shows the REAL effective f/stop in use at close "macro" distances.
  • Pros: Lightweight

Sharp, Fast, Works well copying slides

SD, B&H Photo
7 July 2013
  • Excerpt: I am happy with my AFS MicroNikkor 60mm f2.8G ED, which is my 4th Macro lens over the years. Long ago one of my major uses of Macro lenses was to copy flat material, which we never do anymore because a flatbed scanner can be used so easily.
  • Pros: Fast / accurate auto-focus

  • Summary: The build quality seems top notch. Nice texture, fit and finish. The focus ring is perfectly dampend. Sharp images! Love it. I can double this lens as mid-tele portrait as well as a macro. In both cases, it has surpassed my expectations.
