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.
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'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!
I have five lenses..from 1972 to 1998...used on F2, Nikkormat, F3 and Oxberry and Forox animation and copy stands...now on D600 and D610
My favorite lens is the buttery smooth 55 2.8 f.2.8. A bit short for hardcore macro work, but my Mamiya 120 f4 does the trick for that. The 55mm works when things are tight. Brings clarity in the fog of night, turns smiles into sunshine.
