Some customer reviews of Nikon 60mm f/2.8G ED AF-S Micro

Most helpful reviews

Naian, very enthusiastic in photography

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
nicely build body and good optical quality, very light to carry. But personally I would use it as a daily lens rather than a micro one since the zoom is just not large enough, best for taking shots of dishes and flowers.
Bad points:
since it was designed for old film SLR camera, even if you put it on DSLR body like D700, its auto focusing turns out to be quite slow when using full macro mode and sometimes I will just use manual mode.

Stefan, Galatsi/Greece

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Excellent build quality and excellent cooperation with the Nikon D700.
Very sharp pictures in portrait photography.
Bad points:
I would like more depth of field in macro photography.
But perhaps too much to ask from a lens at this price.

Philip , Paris, France a loyal fan Nikon

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
this lens is focusing very fastly, and is very sharp at any distance, a nice lens a very good must !
Bad points:
Perhaps the lens lacks the stabilization but it' s not prohibitive since I often do the portrait and macro not too close. I did find anything really threatening.

Fantastic lense, just need to watch the DOF ( wafer thin, if you want ) but you're always going to get that with a macro.
