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.

I really labored over purchasing this lens, as the Nikon 85mm f/3.5G AF-S DX ED VR Micro Nikkor Lens for Nikon Digital SLR Cameras was announced around the time I had bought this lens.
But I knew I wanted more working distance since I was going to use this lens on my D200 (DX body, so effective focal length 90mm); I also wanted something that would work on my N75 and have the ability to use with a D700/D3/D3x if I so chose to.
A recent Dec 2009 review from Popular Photography also supported my choice, titled "7 Versatile Pieces of Photo Gear":
The 60mm Macro Lens
For tremendous versatility in a single focal length, nothing beats a fast (f/2.8 or faster) 60mm macro lens, especially when you use it on a DSLR with an APS-C-sized sensor. It's tops for both fascinating close-ups and flattering portraits. A macro lens is a must to get in tight on a small object. And if your subject is round (like these cherries), a 60mm can help bring out the shape in ways that longer macros, which flatten the scene, cannot. Even better? Its typical close-focusing distance of 7-9 inches lets you adjust your subject while your eye remains glued to the viewfinder. But with portraits, you want to be farther away. The one here succeeds in part because the photographer's 60mm macro lens, used on her Nikon D200, scaled up to a 90mm equivalent--just about perfect for people pictures.
Regardless, this macro has been a joy to use, and it gives me several stops advantage over the "competing" 85 3.5 VR macro recently released. . .
Quick, silent focus, and excellent gold-stamped "N" construction round out the pluses!
Odd length, doesn't really fit well with my small lens cases.
HEAVY for the size. But I like it (some may not).
Some hunting in low light and slow to focus from infinity to close, as expected of a macro though since they are made to be be finely adjusted.
Wish it had VR as I use it as a portrait lens sometimes.
P.S. I also use with the post-processing suiteDxO Optics Pro v5 Standard Edition(D200 + 60mm 2.8). Cleans up my shots and gives me a few-stop advantage in post processing!
All that said, it's not without flaws. I notice green and purple chromatic aberration on a regular basis. It shows up especially in high contrast areas, but even when I make attempts to minimize it by changing lighting, I can still see faint traces of it. Fortunately Lightroom can remove most of the aberration. But I would suspect that if one bought the "next lens up", i.e. the more expensive one, you would not have as much of an issue.
I purchased the 60mm and the 105mm lenses due to the difference in focal lengths - while the 60mm will be used for studio work, the 105mm will be used for nature work. There is some hunting done at close range but it is quick to resolve and bring in the focus. If there is no shot to take it will do nothing until you are at the right distance from your subject. But you should familiarize yourself with the aspects of the lens than you will do fine. The bokeh is beautiful and creamy and it makes your photo feel like a work of art.
Overall well worth the money. Teamed this lens up on a D90 with a Nikon NC - 62mm Filter - for protection. An absolutely beautiful lens.
