I have owned one of these in one form or another since about 1969 and would not be without it. My wife also uses one as her all-around lens.Focusing is easy, even in low light. Speed is adequate for general use. Small size makes it easy to carry. Image quality is great.
Some old designs do not seem to lose their lustre. At the usual intermediate f/stops, this Nikon 55mm f/2.8 manual focus micro lens consistently produces extremely sharp images on my 24 MP APS-C Nikon camera. That includes all distances. The lens has a flat field and low distortion.
If you are into shooting subject matter where you want to focus down to 9 inches, this is the lens! I bought it for close up work with my F2AS. For a while, I carried my faster 50mm lens with me as well, but once I saw how amazingly sharp this lens is, I rarely carry the 50mm now.
The sharpest lens in the Nikon line. Good for closups. Also great on the bellows. Compact. Very decent flare control with a lens shade added.
I wish the F2.8 was an F2. Then it would be fantastic as a normal lens. As it is, it is too slow for indoors available light.
F2.8 is slow to me on this focal length but ok on a zoom or a telephoto.
This is a fantastic lens for a 35mm film camera like my FM3A, or for a newer FX full frame Nikon. It represents 1/2 life-size which means photographs taken with this very sharp clear lens are also incredible.
One of the great bargain legendary lenses that is still practical for the 21st century!
i knew it was a used lens, but this lens have at least 100 fungi spots, that can't clean in a camera service,
I was able to take a few shots with this lens before I had to return it. The sharpness and micro detail for this focal length was astounding. For some reason the aperture could not be adjusted from the camera. I bought it for this reason since I already own a 55mm 3.5 micro AI.
I've owned this lens, previously; however, I was using it mostly for slideduplicating. It was excellent in that regard. I've used newer macro lenses in longer focal lengths; and admittedly, they are worth more than the extra bucks it costs to purchase these newer lens designs/optics.
this is a lens perfect . excelent sharpness, best mechanics performance, ring focus perfect, 2.8! and very good macro lens!this is a lens for ever!
