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.
I wanted to toss in this review before Nikon discontinued this great lens. If you're thinking about this lens and manual focus doesn't frighten, this is a great overall workhorse of a prime lens. The two Nikon micro 60mm AF lenses seem poised to replace this lens.
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.
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.
