Close Range Correction system provides high performance at both near and far focusingdistances Nikon Super Integrated Coating for minimized flare and ghost, providing good colorbalance Close-up to approximately 8.75 inches 90.4-Millimeter working distanceEditorial ReviewsFrom the ManufacturerLens-making is an art--Nikon artisans craft Nikkor optics from the finest materials, taking pridein adding their intellect and technique to bring the worlds finest lenses to life. They push theleading edge of lens-making in their effort to provide the "glass" that makes the worlds greatestpictures.AF Nikkor lenses work with Nikon SLRs for optimal performance, even the very latest. TheNikon 60mm f2.8D AF Micro-Nikkor Lens is Nikons most compact Micro lens for close-up andgeneral photography, making it great for portrait, copy work, and field close-up applications. TheClose Range Correction system provides high performance at both near and far focusingdistances. The Nikon Super Integrated Coating for minimized flare and ghost, providing goodcolor balance. The lens shoots as close-up to approximately 8.75 inches and has a 90.4-millimeter working distance.Nikon Super Integrated Coating ensures exceptional performanceTo enhance the performance of its optical lens elements, Nikon employs an exclusive multilayerlens coating that helps reduce ghost and flare to a negligible level. Nikon Super IntegratedCoating achieves a number of objectives, including minimized reflection in the widerwavelength range and superior color balance and reproduction. Nikon Super Integrated Coatingis especially effective for lenses with a large number of elements, like our Zoom-Nikkors. Also,Nikons multilayer coating process is tailored to the design of each particular lens. The numberof coatings applied to each lens element is carefully calculated to match the lens type and glassused, and also to assure the uniform color balance that characterizes Nikkor lenses. This resultsin lenses that meet much higher standards than the rest of the industry.Close-Range Correction systemThe Close-Range Correction (CRC) system is one of Nikons most important focusinginnovations, for it provides superior picture quality at close focusing distances and increases thefocusing range. With CRC, the lens elements are configured in a "floating element" designwherein each lens group moves independently to achieve focusing. This ensures superior lensperformance even when shooting at close distances.Distance informationD-type and G-type Nikkors relay subject-to-camera distance information to AF Nikon camerabodies. This then makes possible advances like 3D Matrix Metering and 3D Multi-Sensor
Balanced Fill-Flash. Note: D-type and G-type Nikkors provide distance information to thefollowing cameras: Auto exposure; F6, F5, F100, F90X, F80, F75, F70, F65, F60, F55, F50,Pronea S, Pronea 600i, D2 series, D1 series, D100, and D70s/D70.

Its razor sharp. Image quality isoutstanding. Youll see detail on your slides or prints that you could never see with the nakedeye.The only thing that could possibly disappoint is the working distance. At 1:1, the subject is about2-3 inches from the front of the lens. When shooting insects or other moving creatures, this maybe too close. The 105mm macro is the way to go for that.---Edited with the following: Ive seen 1 and 2 star reviews for this lens because it will notautofocus with the Nikon D40, D40x, and D60(and possibly others). All the other functions stillwork, just have to manually focus it. **If you want autofocus with the above mentioned Nikonbodies, get the new G version of this lens. These days the 2 are almost the same price.And someknock it because it doesnt have VR. Hey, this lens was introduced around 1989-long before VRor digital SLRs. And in macro photography, steadiness and focusing are so critical, VR wonthelp much anyway. The only proper technique is to use a rock solid tripod and focus manually. Ifyou think you can just hold the camera and shoot at 1:1 reproduction ratio, youll have alot ofblurred shots. So do your homework and research and dont buy something that is not fullycompatible with your camera body-and then give it 1 or 2 stars. Its a fine lens-trust me.110 of 114 people found the following review helpful.Best lens from NikonBy Ruchai KanjanavanitIf I can only have one lens it will be this Nikon 60mm f/2.8 macro. Actually I hardly remove itfrom my D50.I had to buy a D200 for birds photography because the 60mm was glued to theD50. I use it for every thing from portrait to small insects. This lens is equal to 90mm 35mmequivalent, in the film days ~90-100 mm macro lens were the most popular. With digital manypeople had read the old books and think experts are using 100 mm macro lenses and dare not buythis 60mm and posted to every webs that 60 mm is too short for small insects. I took thousands
of insect shots with this lens and will never use any other lens. It is very sharp, maybe thesharpest lens Nikon ever made.98 of 101 people found the following review helpful.One of the best macro lenses availableBy John KwokAmong Nikons most celebrated lenses have been its Micro Nikkor macro lenses. This autofocuslens remains among the best, not only for its fine optics but also because it will allow the user tofocus down to a 1:1 life size reproduction ratio, which is perfect for photographing inanimateobjects such as coins or stamps or relatively still living objects such as leaves and flowers. Iagree with another reviewer that if you intend to photograph small animals such as insects, theneither a 105mm Micro Nikkor or the 200mm f4 Micro Nikkor, would be a more appropriatemacro lens. Otherwise, the 60mm Micro Nikkor lens may be all the lens you need for superbcloseup photography.See all 56 customer reviews...My Associates Store | Shopping Cart Browse by CategoryPatio Furniture SetsCamera & Photo Similar ItemsSigma EM-140 DG Macro Ring Flash...$339.00Nikon 35mm f/2D AF Wide-Angle Ni...Too low to displayNikon EN-EL15 Rechargeable Li-Io...$56.79 Accessories
