    Many uses for this sharp lens!

    Posted by ScottnLaguna on November 5, 2012

    I bought this to photograph oil paintings. It is 1:1 and basically zero distortion. On my D800 it is simply amazing. For copy work I use f5.6 but this is a great 2.8 for portraits! It is almost too sharp, Every tiny hair is recorded. Rediculous. As an artist, I like to use my photos as reference for making artwork. The 1:1 ratio and lack of distortion make this the perfect lens for many things. I did buy it as a refurb but in 3 1/2 months it has been perfect. I need to look into the 105mm micro version as well.
    One more thing, it is the least expensive Nikkor lens recommended to use by Nkon for the D800. I can see why. You will get all the resolution from that 36mp camera with this lens.

    CAUTION - Dont buy it refurbished

    Posted by Disappointed Denny on September 1, 2011

    Purchased refurbished lens from Nikon Store.
    BIG MISTAKE!! Lens would not manually focus without binding in the mid ap range. Expected much more quality from a NIKON refurb but QC obviously lacking in the lens refurb department.
    When I used it via auto focus it worked great - color, focus quality, etc. was superb!
    Bottom line - purchase this lens NEW with a full warranty and be sure to use AMX or other credit card with buyer protection feature.

    Flat field over the entire frame of a D3 camera, Excellent for copying art work as well as extreme close up of flowers, insects and other extremely small objects/

    Great lens and great image quality, without $$$

    Posted by LetTheLightShine on May 11, 2011

    After owning this lens for more than a year now, I´m still amazed when I shot with this lens. Yes, you read it right, I´m amazed even when I just look through the view finders of my Nikon D700 and D7000. And the IQ is simply great when I later look the raw image files at my PC. This is one of the few great Nikon lenses that requires minimum raw file adjustment in Lightroom. The color, contrast, saturation, sharpness, and details are just gorgeous.

    Hours of fun!

    I bought this lens a couple of years ago and pull it out frequently for macro shooting and also standard 60mm portraits. Great for ebay shots as well. Well constructed and dependable.

    Great Macro Lens!

    Posted by JBS on April 14, 2011

    For a cropped sensor this is the perfect macro lens, at least for me. The AF-S is a wonderful addition and it focuses fast and accurate on a D300 body.

    In addition to the close focusing, its also a great medium telephoto lens.
