Rated 5 out of 5 by from My most versatile lens 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. The crispness of detail in macro work is unparalleled if used with good light and a tripod. Since it has an aperture ring, it can be used with macro rings and bellows if you want to go super close up. Its short length can be tough if you are trying to shoot shy creatures, but excellent for flowers and other "still" life. It doesn't work well with filters because of the recessed element. It is a wonderful portrait lens in tight spaces where an 85mm-up can't be used, or for newborns. The crispness will capture every flaw, so keep the aperture wide. Bokeh is nice, but not as pretty as the 85f/1.8G or the 135mm f/2D-DC. It also is an excellent lens for landscape shots as you can set your depth of field to f/22-f/32 although the sharpness begins to fall off after f/16. The recessed front element is great as a lens hood isn't really necessary. This lens has virtually zero CA and little distortion that can be easily corrected in editing. It has a classic "zeep-zeep" loud autofocus sound (that I personally like) and is just a little slow. With macro shots, you will have to switch to manual focus, but the focus ring is smooth and tight. An amazing lens that should not disappoint.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Close, closer, closest 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. I am sure the latest 'G' version is a masterpiece too, but for the occasional close-up work I shoot this lens is great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An all round lens for the field "I work in agricultural/biological research and recently purchased this lens. I also have a 105mm VR Micro lens which is fantastic but which I feel is more suited for special applications than everyday use because of its larger size. The 60mm D micro is perfect for general ""habit"" photographs or overview shots and is capable of wonderful macro shots when those are also needed in the field to record detail. I have a number of other D lenses (28 2.8,35 2.0 and 50mm 1.4) and like the idea of an aperture control ring. The reason I chose this over the 60mm G micro lens was because of the slightly greater working distance the D lens has over the G. Overall, a very useful tool in the field. It is mostly on a Nikon D600 but also is used with a D200 where the focal length becomes effectively 90mm. It is on my camera most of the time because of its general utility in the field for both general and macro photos."

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Minimal distortion. I use this lens to retake signs and labels on the equipment. I live and work in Russia. Focusing is sometimes mistaken for work at low temperatures (When the air temperature inside the lens is different from the outside temperature?). Additionally reluctantly note: there is no instruction in Russian. Please publish the manual in Russian.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic lens. Extremely sharp This is my first lens that I bought after i got my D90 kit. Truly worth every penny. The lens is amazingly sharp. The DOF at f2.8 is so shallow that sometimes its hard to get everything in view. The bokeh is also nice and adds a beautiful effect to the photograph. Overall, totally worth to get this lens. Also works as a fantastic potrait lens. Only problem is it is extremely sensitive to "vibrations". Tripod use is highly recommended with this lens. OR get the slightly more expensive newer VR version.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT LENSE This lense is awesome, I am a novice photographer, just like to take picktures of bugs and flowers. I got this lense for this purpose and it was AMAZING. The sharpness was uncanny and the color was so vibrant, makes me look at every day objects and in a totally different way.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Capturing Life! "I bought the Nikon D3100 after having my first child. My little point and shoot was fine (I thought) until he started moving. All my pictures were ruined by baby movement and it broke my mom-heart. I am SO glad I bought the Nikon! I bought the 3100 and added 55-200 lens to the 18-55 it came with. I also bought a case, a lens brush and a memory card. I also took Henry's course on the camera which I am very thankful I did. My pictures were instantly better, and the ones that aren't great I now know why and how to fix. One thing I liked about the Nikon over the camera was the weight of it - it was a nice substantial feeling camera I didn't feel like I was going to break it. My Nikon is helping me capture the life of my son, but it's not so hard to use that I'm missing his life being behind the camera. I would recommend the Nikon to everyone!"
