Released back in ’93 the Micro-Nikkor AF 60mm f/2.8 D is a relatively old design but it can still deliver excellent results. The resolution figures are excellent and both vignetting and distortions are nothing to worry about. CAs are a little on the high side for a fix-focal lens though (correctable). The mechanical quality is very good and it’s fun to handle the lens. A great macro lens and even a worthy replacement for a standard lens unless you require ultra-large aperture settings.

I confess to being a bit unpleasantly surprised by this lens. Given that it’s a prime (non-zoom) lens of modest focal length, I was really expecting superior performance from it, Performance was decidedly mediocre wide open, with the whole left side of the frame noticeably soft. Things did get sharper as we stopped down, but you really shouldn’t have to stop down a prime 60mm selling at street prices close to $400 to get decent performance. At the end of the day, I’d have to say that this is only a mediocre lens, not really worth its relatively high selling price. READ FULL REVIEW

  1. This is one of the sharpest Macro lens… obliviously you aren’t using it properly if you think its not sharp enough.
