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).

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.

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.

This is an absolutely fantastic lens. It's extremely sharp. The autofocus is very fast, even though it's not an AF-S lens. The AF is fast enough to cover sports which require short lenses such as basketball. The field of view on DX bodies allows it to double as a portrait lens.

You want Macro, I'll give you Macro! I removed this lens from it's box after purchasing and was very pleased with the weight of this sucker, and then I used it. The results were amazing, sharp, fast, and easy to use. The deep lens element negates the need for a lens hood in most situations.

    * Looses a stop when focused right in

If you are looking for a close up lens, this is it. Its 1:1 life size reproduction will make the subject jump out at you. The lens is fast enough (f2.8)so that operation in auto mode will produce quality pictures even if the subject moves on you.

A great general purpose macro lens for those who don't want or need to specialize in that field. Great "bang for the buck"

    Excellent value, construction and optical performance.

    slight "slop" in the focus ring

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.

The Nikon 60mm f/2.8 macro lens is a fantastic choice for those who like to get right up close to their subject. This lens is ideal for those who like to shoot textures (plants, flowers, still life, etc).

Having read several reviews I was a little unsure whether to go for the D or a more recent model. I am glad I chose the D.<br />Its quite compact on a D810 and offers sharp landscape and general photography. It really comes into its own with close up macro work.

The FX Nikon 60mm 2.8mm AF D Micro/Macro is a stunningly sharp lens, and has the ability to produce truly astounding results.<br />This lens is sometimes a little to sharp for portrait shots as it picks up even the smallest imperfections on a face, however this is a personal issue that some...

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.
