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.<br />This guy is compact, pretty light and really sharp, I mean really sharp. <br />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

Nikon 60mm f/2.8D AF Micro-Nikkor Lens for Nikon Digital SLR Cameras

Peter P. Strawn "Peter", Amazon
26 January 2014
  • Summary: The Nikon 60 mm macro lens is an outstanding lens for close-up and portrait photos. I leave this lens on the Nikon D200 most of the time due to its adaptability and excellent picture taking capabilities. The wife has and enjoys the Nikon 105 mm macro lens because it has a greater stand-off capability, but I've used the 60 mm macro on butterflies with no problems.

Really Like this little Lens

Mike, Amazon

  • Summary: This little gem focuses fast and seems not to search as much as my Nikon 105! It is not as bulky and weighs less than the 105, a nice nice feature when carry around all morning at the botanic gardens! Color saturation is good but I tend to increase this in post production just a bit, so for me, that isn't a deal breaker. I did purchase this used from EZCorp and the condition was a 9+ (not to mention a B&W UV filter and padded carrying case!!!

Great for Ring photos at Weddings

Ryan D, Amazon
19 November 2013
  • Summary: Incredibly sharp, easy to use, auto-focus works well. I've used a number of macro lenses and this one is superb. I shoot weddings and use this regularly to photograph the rings. Before I was using the Tokina 105mm f/2.8, which admittedly is a great lens in itself but I prefer this lens because it's wider angle allows you more context in your macros.

As perfect as a lens can be.

Michael Gordon, Amazon
16 November 2013
  • Summary: I purchased this lens to rephotograph my Kodachrome and Ektachrome slides. Yes, much faster than scanning -- just photograph your photographs! It also works exceptionally well on old photo albums. It's magic is "flat field" -- no observable distortions, a plane object will be in focus all at the same time, and razor sharp.

Very sharp lens

  • Summary: Very sharp but slow to focus. It is kind of heavy compared to my other lenses. I use it for portraits and macro.

Perfect lens

Channing Prothro, Amazon

  • Summary: Although this lens doesn't connect to the focus system on the camera, it works great; just have to focus manually. Works great as a macro lens and is a wonderful portrait lens. Just enough telephoto to compress perfectly.

AMAZING lens

Texas Giant, Amazon

  • Summary: The 60mm micro is an amazingly sharp lens perfectly suited for macro work. I also have a 105mm micro, but the 60mm gives me better images.

Every thing i expected and more

LNHANSEN, Amazon
3 August 2013
  • Summary: Lens came well packaged from seller and in condition as advertised. Shot about 30 macro pics of various subjects with spectacular results. Been shooting with rings with good results but this lens outshines all the previous pictures. Sharp crisp detail. Have a macro slide that I purchased a couple of weeks ago and can't wait to do some stacking. Highly recommend this lens!
