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.

It creates very sharp and clear shots for macro purposes and even for portraits at times.
If you are a bit weary of insects and plan to shoot them quite a bit, you may want to go for a longer focal length.
This lens, paired with my Speedlight, enable me to get some very sharp clear shots at high aperture settings while indoors.
In the end, this had turned into my most used lens at a time. I just enjoyed shooting with it so much that I was shooting primarily macro shots for about a year.
Unless you need to really keep your distance, this lens will serve your needs and blow you away with the crisp detail and accurately saturated color in the pictures you'll produce. I didn't think I could get close enough to some subjects but working slowly, I've had the end of this lens within 2-inches of wild fence lizards and inside of the minimum possible focal distance with subjects like grasshoppers and bees.
It's almost one of those rare "can't go wrong" situations. Buy it, you'll be glad you did.
This little gem has the best technologies Nikon offers currently: Silent Wave motor, AFS, IF (internal focusing), ED Glass, 9-blade rounded diaphragm, and Nano coating. To my knowledge, there is no other Nikon lenses that sell for less and still have all these technologies. The only thing it missed is VR which will make it "perfect".
In additon to very sharp, I also like the background blurry a lot. The lens is very light when comparing to the Nikon 105 VR. This makes it very usable for hand-held close-ups which is the purpose I bought it for.
I'd recommend this lens to anyone who look for a macro lens with a different prospective (than 105 VR) with a Nikon FF camera. You should also consider this lens if you are thinking to get a standard lens (like 50mm f1.4). This lens can focus from a few inches all the way to infinite while normal lenses requires a minimum focus distance of 2-3 feet or more. Also macro lenses are typically sharper than non-macro lenses.

Just finished processing the first major batch of images shot with this lens. The color is so vivid and brilliant. The blurry background is so beautiful. The lens is a gem. Highly recommended.

I tested the AF today. The AF for this lens is actually very fast. Compare to my other lenses, AF speed for subject great than 2 feet, this lens AF faster than 85 f1.4 and my Sigma 50 f1.4. So I would not say it's slow AF any more.
The more I used it, the more I like it. The images are very sharp.
I also think this lens is a great value considering its great IQ and price.
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.
