Excerpt: I bought this used from B&H, only to return it because it wasn't exactly what I expected. For which the process was very easy. That being said, I am not ruling out purchasing it one day again in the future. It just wasn't what I was looking for at this time.
Summary: New Nikon Lens in Nikon packaging,. Gray Market saves money but does not come with Lens hood. Be aware that lens is sharper at f11 than at f36 fo focus stacking may be necessary for better depth of field than just using flash and higher f (smaller aperture) for sharp macro even on solid tripos.
Excerpt: I use this lens mainly as a portrait lens on my D90. I I love the color rendition provided by this lens. It is sharp, but gives flattering skin tones, especially for women.I usually shoot in manual exposure. Light weight but build quality is excellent.
Summary: OHHHHHHH MYYY JEEEEESSSSUUUUSSS!!!!!!! you must absolutely buy this lens!!!!! It is my favorite!!!!!!!!! the pics are crisp!!!! it is absolutely phenomenal!!!!! i use it mostly on my Nikon d7100!!! It has changed the way i take pics!!!!!
Excerpt: This lens is an absolute dream! Great in low-light, fast accurate auto focus, and that wonderful Nikon glass! Produces amazingly sharp images consistently with nice bokeh. This lens is practically affixed permanently to my D7000!
Pros: Consistent Output, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh
Nikon 60mm f/2.8D AF Micro Nikkor review by ioshertz

Summary: very, very good lens one of the best I have, although it is kind of old already - I have it since 2006 - it works great on film and digital, all of the product shots I have are made with it - if someone is interested - http://www.dreamstime.com/astrug_info
Excerpt: I use this lens primarily for forensic applications, such as fingerprint photography, physical evidence photography and the like. Paired with my D800, this lens provides outstanding clarity and detail, especially at extreme closeup ranges.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Rugged, Strong Construction
Excerpt: This is a great lens for both macro and everyday shooting. Delivers fast, clear macro shots with A LOT of light. Only design flaw is that it is not a smooth attachment to the D800.. makes me cringe every time.
Pros: Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction
