Summary: Nikon AF Micro Nikkor 60mm f/2.8D is a pretty solid, but not a unique in its class lens. The resolving capabilities of the lens are quite outstanding on both APS-C as well as FF cameras (give or take - border performance at f/2.8 is slightly off, but still acceptable).
Excerpt: Nikon calls their macro lenses "micro-Nikkors". This is a bit odd considering that they only focus down to 1:1 (still in the macro range) and that they are anything but micro in size. The series includes a 60, a 105, and a 200. My favorite lens is the 60.
Micro-Nikkor AF 60mm f/2.8 D - Review / Test Report
26 December 2007
Conclusion: Released back in '93 the Micro-Nikkor AF 60mm f/2.8 D is a relatively old design but it can still deliver excellent results. The resolution figures are excellent and both vignetting and distortions are nothing to worry about.
Conclusion: You don’t have to be a Sherlock Holmes to figure out from our test that the Nikkor 2.8/60 is a very good instrument, which is half the price of the new Nikkor 2.8/105 VR and still provides lots of great sharp pictures.
Cons: a bit too large coma, chromatic aberration in the maximum aperture area could be a bit smaller
