My most versatile lens

primelensfan , Nikon

  • Summary: After much research, I decided to get the 60mm f/2.8D for macro work. Little did I know it would end up being my most used lens overall, because of its superior sharpness and contrast. It worked beautifully on my D610, and then spectacularly on my D810.

Beautiful Results

  • Excerpt: I have recently purchased this product and used it a handful of times for practice. Recently, I took it out with me for a photoshoot, and the pictures came out looking beautiful. Absolutely beautiful photos with the soft, blurred background, and in focus foreground.

Excellent little macro!

  • Summary: I picked up a used 60mm D on eBay last year, and though I also own the 105 VR and intend to get the 200mm micro, I am loving this 60D lens on my Df. I thought about the G version, and I have both G and D lenses in my kit.

Not a bad portrait lens for a Dx Nikon

  • 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.

Great lens except for one design flaw

  • 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.

Close, closer, closest

  • Summary: Macro is a fascinating aspect of photography and I acquired a manual focus Micro-Nikkor several years ago and created a number of wonderful pictures with it. However, I was always frustrated by the annoyance of setting up the older lens.

  • Excerpt: Very sharp images on close-up shots, as well a good lens to use for stand in portrait work. The lens is light enough, as macro-micro lens go, that it can be used as a "walk around" lens. The 60 feels solid and the focus ring has a good feel to it.

More than just a macro lens

StuDawg, Adorama
28 April 2014
  • Excerpt: I had the legendary 105 2.8 macro but never used it b/c of the extending barrel and just too long.This guy is compact, pretty light and really sharp, I mean really sharp. Ultra sharp macro (use a tripod, always) and I love it on the street or in the back country. This is a really sharp lens.
  • Pros: Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Rugged
  • Cons: Heavy

  • 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.
