Nikon 60mm f/2.8D AF Micro-Nikkor

1987NCP_180
Review Date: Jul 2, 2010 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $260.00 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Sharp, Sharp, Did I say Sharp!!! Great for Macro & PORTRAITS as well!!!!
Cons:
Sometimes I get glare

One of my favorite lenses. I use it most of time for taking portraits and macro. Purchased this lens for the sole purpose of MACRO. But interestingly I am using it more for Portraits.
Extremely sharp shows all blemishes - can be a negative factor when using for portrait.
Great in low light with the constant 2.8.
Make sure to get a 62mm filter to keep dust from getting in the deep barrel.

Pros: Sharpness, Speed, Smooth Zoom.
Cons:
Using manual focus is little tricky. Manual Focus ring feels really cheap.

Purchased this lens off e-bay for approx 165 dollars. Its the D model so had to pay 50-60 dollars extra. But truly worth the extra, because you get the fast focus and the flash meter recognition.

I did alot of research before purchasing this lens and I came to the conclusion that instead of spending 170 dollars on the 55-200mm VR which is a very sharp and very cheap lens. I rather get a well made, metal lens that works amazing on my D90. Using this 20 year old lens on the digital format cameras I get a range of about 300mm.

Great piece of glass, and if you keep a look out on e-bay your sure to find one selling for around 100 bucks the NON D version. If you can find a D model for around 150-180 GRAB it. Its worth alot more.

At first the push pull zoom was a lil hard to get used to but I find it really smooth and easy to use after a few tries.
