It has changed the way i take pics!!!!! you can literally use tis macro lens as your solo travelling lens!!!! Everyone should have this in the camera bag!!!!!! I kid you not WHEN I SAY TO GET IT!!!!!!! you will not be disappointed!!!!
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. I was lucky to find a pre-owned 60mm lens and the auto-focus makes such a difference. Not only do I have a sharp everyday f2.8 60mm for my D610 I can also use it on my DX body as a 90mm portrait lens.

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.
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!!!
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.
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.
Summary: I had read quite a number of reviews of this lens in comparison to the later 60mm G version, as well as the 105 macro. I've always liked lenses which have basic metallic construction, and have a heavy, precise feel. I do own 50mm and 85mm G series lenses, but always prefer the heavy feel of my 24-70 and 70-200 F2.8.
