Nikon 60mm f/2.8D AF Micro-Nikkor

1987NCP_180
Review Date: Nov 13, 2004 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $450.00 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Sharp, sharp, sharp, image is crisp and clear. Decent AF.
Cons:
None whatsoever.

I use it as my everyday universal lens 50% of the time. Incredible for macro shots, although sometimes i wish i had something like 105mm.

Reasonable AF, although it may hunt too long, especially in low light, but the manual focus works just fine.

The only semi-complaint would be a not very beautiful bokeh, but i can live with that.


 
Nikon 24-120mm f/3.5-5.6G ED-IF AF-S VR

2145NCP_180
Review Date: Nov 13, 2004 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $500.00 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Fast, sharp, VR, inexpensive (relatively), lightweight and compact.
Cons:
None per se.

It's an excellent everyday zoom. VR is very helpful, i like this lense better at the tele end, as opposed to the wide end, mostly due to some image distortion at the wide end.

Yes, it's consumer grade, but this is probably the best combination of zoom rage, glass quality and price possible.

Overall, i am very happy
