    I recommend this product for professional ,entry-level and entry-professional photographers.It is a high quality lens with no distortions and a great blur effect.
    I mostly used with a D5100 and D5300.
    This lens is one of my favourites.It definitely deserves 5 stars!

    Excellent Lens for Reproducing Fine Art

    Posted by Scripps23 on April 16, 2015

    This Nikon micro lens is perfect for reproducing fine art work. The reproduction of the painting below was taken with a Nikon D800 camera body at an aperture of f/8, an ISO of 100, and Matrix Metering.

    Probably the best Nikkor 60mm macro ever

    Posted by jimmyd on March 6, 2015

    This is a very good lens length, it is very easy to hand hold and hand hold still. It is probably the best Nikkor macro of this range, I have owned the 55 mm 3.5 non-Ai, the 55mm 2.8 AIs and the 60mm 2.8 AF-d....all have been very good this one tops them.

    The only thing I would like to see is for this lens to have a collapsible lens hood, at 1:1 the current one can get in the way.

    All that said one thing few comment about is it´s lack of distortion. This lens not only has horizontal and vertical lines without distortion, but the squares are square and the rounds are round. It is an excellent lens when perfect shapes are needed.

    No problems... Nice micro. Easy to use. What you would expect in a Nikon lens.

    versatile and sharp

    Posted by PhotoMate on March 15, 2014

    This lens provides the versatility that I needed when traveling in Thailand, I shot scenery and portrait using this lens with very satisfying results. I recommend this lens when you are traveling light and want sharp quality for all conditions. Excellent in low light conditions, great depth of field.

    I have gotten some really excellent close-up shots with this lens. Amazing image quality. I´ve been using it for general photography as well and it works great.
    The only thing to note is that in order to get true 1:1 macro shots you will need to be within an inch of your subject. If you are hoping to get shots of insects that won´t like that then you may want to consider a longer focal length.

    Wonderful Clarity

    Posted by AussieInLondon on June 10, 2013

    I bought this lens to add to my professional kit. I never thought I could hand hold a camera still enough for a macro shot but I was wrong. This is a fantastic lens that lives up to every expectation you can ever imagine you would need a macro lens for.

    Don´t dither, buy it!

    Prime Example of Fine Art

    Posted by dmbNik on May 2, 2013

    This lens loves doing Micro work and feels like a natural fit on your camera body.. It is small, light, and does double duty as your standard lens in a single package. It works very well in situations for working in botanical gardens, in the park or where tight crops or wider whole plant portraiture is important. You can´t ask for a better walk around lens with Micro capabilities than this 60mm. Makes almost anything pop off the page with detail.

    I love it because it is short, compact, carry proof for all day outings, and has a wider field of view for whole plant portraiture.

    Amazing Macro Lens

    Posted by torogito on November 16, 2012

    I sold my 90mm macro and bought a Nikon, I should´ve stick to Nikon in the first place! This 60mm f/2.8 af-s works like a charm! I bought it used but works like new and the AF is very fast although I don´t use it on macro but AF works and helps on portraits -) great lens!
