Get better pictures from your digital SLR with this Nikon USA: AF-S Micro-NIKKOR 60mm f/2.8G ED lens. With its two aspherical lens elements, lens aberrations are rare. And if you need to take a picture fast, the Silent Wave Motor produces high-speed and quiet autofocus operation. And its Nano Crystal Coat eliminates most internal reflections across a wide range of wavelengths for even greater image integrity. Faster, smoother autofocusing and eliminates barrel length changes and front element rotation Virtually eliminates internal reflections across a wide range of wavelengths Superior color performance, while substantially reducing ghosting and flare Optimized for edge-to-edge sharpness on both the Nikon FX-format (23.9 x 36mm) and DX-format image sensors Rounded 9-blade diaphragm for more natural appearance of out-of-focus image elements M/A Focus Mode allows fast, smooth transitions, autofocus to manual operation Focal length - 60mm Maximum aperture - f/2.8 Minimum aperture - f/32 Lens construction - 12 elements in 9 groups (with one ED glass lens, two aspherical lenses, one with Nano Crystal Coat) Picture angle - 39 40' (26 30' with Nikon DX format) Closest focus distance - 0.185 m/0.6 ft.

Ideal for close-up shots, copy work, and general photography, the Nikon 60mm f/2.8G ED AF-S lens is optimized for edge-to-edge sharpness on both Nikon FX format and DX format image sensors. The lens is equipped with an exclusive Silent Wave Motor (SWM) that enables accurate, quiet, high-speed autofocus operation. The lens's pair of aspherical elements, meanwhile, virtually eliminate coma and other types of aberration even at the widest aperture. Add in an extra-low-dispersion (ED) glass element--which effectively minimizes chromatic aberration--and your photos will enjoy superior sharpness and color correction regardless of the subject. Other details include an internal focusing (IF) design that enables the use of polarizers and speed-light systems; a Nano Crystal Coat that virtually eliminates reflections across a wide range of wavelengths for even greater image integrity; a Super Integrated Coating (SIC) that substantially reduces ghosting and flare; a rounded nine-blade diaphragm that makes out-of-focus image elements appear more natural; and a M/A focus mode that allows you to quickly transition between autofocus and manual operation.

Not only does it have fast and accurate autofocus (although the previous AF version wasn't bad either), it just gives you jaw-dropping detail, whether you use it close up or focused at infinity.
The 60mm is a little short for serious closeup work as it puts you right on top of the subject...this is why some people prefer the 105, and I might agree if I shot FX-sensor cameras exclusively. But on a DX sensor, this acts more like a 90mm lens, and that's plenty comfortable for the type of work I do. Indeed, I find when I go REALLY close, I tend to use an old-fashioned bellows setup, and again, here I like the 60 instead of the 105.
One point about this particular lens is that it's not just incredibly sharp and contrasty - it also has a wonderfully flat field of focus. On the older lenses, if you photograph, say, stamps or other flat objects, you may have had issues with the corners being slightly out of focus due to curvature of field. Not so with this one, which is flat right out to the corners.
It also makes a great normal lens for day-to-day use, for those of us who like to travel light and leave the monster zooms home.
As a macro lens i have nothing but great words to say, as do others so i won't bore anyone with those details.
As a portrait lens, some things of note:
1. This lens seems to have great troubles focusing on anything more than about 5 feet away in anything but perfect lighting conditions. At one point, I stood trying to focus on a tree with some moderately harsh backlighting and the thing just would not focus. It THOUGHT it locked focus but upon zooming in, it was not.
2. Spherecromatism on this thing is pretty severe wide open. If you are somewhat close to the subject and don't have EXACT focus, specular reflections on the eye will appear as magenta or green blobs, depending on front or back focus.
3. Bokeh on this lens isn't what its hyped to be, at least not for me, and it doesn't handle out of focus highlights very gracefully.
4. As another reviewer stated, this lens flares up very easily if there is any type of adverse back lighting.
In a studio environment these problems would mostly become minor nuisances, but in the real world they are deal killers. Sorry, i really wanted to like this lens, but i could not. If you are expecting to use this as a portrait lens, i would think twice, except for studio use. Even the 'ED' glass and 'Nanocoating' can't save it.
Clearly Nikon had to make some compromises to get the extreme flat sharpness.
I set the AF fine tune adjustment to minus 5 for the most accurate focus with my particular camera. I shoot in raw and process in Lightroom. The default lens correction profile for the lens is on and chromatic aberration correction as well. The lens has some minor purple fringing at f2.8 to f4, and a tiny amount at f5.6. I notice it only when viewing the images on screen at 100%. I created a preset in Lightroom to get rid of the fringing.
I use this lens not only for close-ups, but for landscape shots with the subject at virtual infinity distance. It is very sharp for both purposes, which is not the case with some macro lenses.
The lens provides excellent color saturation and bokeh. I found it to be very much better than the 50mm Nikon lenses in image quality.
Here are some things I think are important to note:
- the maximum aperture reduces as you focus closer (2.8 at just over a meter, 4.8 at closest distance)
- can get pictures as close as 2-3 inches from the front of the lens
- an LED ring light is a pretty inexpensive way to help with close pictures
- the autofocus is quiet and fast
- the lens hood covers the focus ring completely when installed backwards
Thinking that it would be like a normal prime lens that could just focus closer, I was hoping to use it as a walk-around lens in place of my 50mm 1.4. However, because of the reducing maximum aperture I've found it to be more a specialty lens. That said, I'm still very happy with it.
