Nikon 60mm f/2.8 overview

  • 1Description

Superb at close range, the Nikon AF-S Micro NIKKOR 60mm f/2.8G ED is a short telephoto macro lens offering a life-size 1:1 maximum magnification along with a 7.3" minimum focusing distance. Contributing to clear and accurate rendering, the lens design incorporates two aspherical elements and one extra-low dispersion element to reduce aberrations and distortions for improved sharpness and color accuracy. Both a Nano Crystal Coat and a Super Integrated Coating are featured, too, to control flare and ghosting for improved contrast and color fidelity in harsh lighting conditions. Additionally, complementing the imaging capabilities, a Silent Wave Motor affords fast and precise autofocus performance, along with full-time manual focus override, to benefit both stills and video applications.

Slightly longer-than-normal prime is designed for FX-format F-mount cameras, however can also be used with DX models where it provides a 90mm equivalent focal length.
Ideal for macro shooting, this lens offers a life-size 1:1 maximum magnification along with a minimum focusing distance of 7.3" to suit working with close-up subjects.
Two aspherical elements are used to reduce spherical aberrations and distortion in order to realize sharp imagery with accurate rendering.
One extra-low dispersion element greatly reduces color fringing and chromatic aberrations in order to produce greater clarity and color accuracy.
Both a Nano Crystal Coat and a Super Integrated Coating have been applied to individual elements to suppress internal reflections, flare, and ghosting for improved contrast and color accuracy when working in strong lighting conditions.
Silent Wave Motor affords quick, quiet, and precise autofocus performance along with full-time manual focus override. An internal focusing design is also used, where only the internal lens groups are moved during focusing, to maintain the overall length of the lens during use and to promote faster focusing speeds.
Rounded nine-blade diaphragm promotes a pleasing out of focus quality that benefits the use of shallow depth of field and selective focus techniques.

    Nikon 60mm f/2.8 reviews

    AF-S Micro NIKKOR 60mm f/2.8G ED Lens is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 323.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Great Tradition Continues The 60mm F2.8G is the worthy descendent and successor of the legendary 55mm F2.8 micro. I use this lens for copying old photos, landscape and even people picture. The F2.8 aperture gives me a bright image in the viewfinder, and the nano coating helps to reduce ghosting and reflection, reducing the hotspot and glare. I consider this lens for good overall usage, in my opinion if you have this lens you shouldn't have to buy the 50mm F1.4, unless you constantly 'must' shoot at that setting. The glass is much flatter which means distortion is virtually non-existence, no exaggeration, just faithful reproduction of what you see through the viewfinder.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Creates Beautiful Sharp & Creamy Images I use this lens on a D200 for a lot of food photography and close-ups of a few other miscellaneous, mainly static subjects. The autofocus sometimes has trouble finding what to focus on, but overall the focus is silent and the images are crisp & sharp with creamy shallow depth of field (or bokeh as some like to call it). The images are always beautiful and the quality superb. I've had this lens for a couple months now and so far no regrets about the quality of the images it produces. One note though, the D200's 1.5 conversion factor turns this lens into a 90mm which is too close sometimes, but an upgrade to FX should fix that...

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great renovation of its predecessor Long-awaited renovation of the highly-regarded Micro-Nikkor AF 60mm f/2.8 D. The lens is quite compact and light. The build quality is very decent, the focus ring operates quite smooth. Thanks to the true IF design the lens neither extends nor rotates during focusing. It has really fast silent-wave AF motor thus AF is available for cameras without build-in AF drive. Unfortunately there is no focus limiter for non-macro photography... I am completely satisfied with the macro shots I can take. The lens is very sharp, the resolution is superb keeping in mind diffraction as the limiting factor for very small apertures (from f/22). I have also no problem with chromatic aberrations. A great macro lens!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great macro lens, solidly built This lens is a prized possession for this newbie. It's quiet (has the silent wave motor) and has internal focusing and the auto/manual switch. It feels solidly built but not too heavy. It's amazing how crazy close and clear photos come out. I've taken a few random portrait photos also and was greatly surprised at the quality (and have had photos with stunningly lovely bokeh). Most photos have been taken without a tripod and some off the hip with wonderful results. Now I need another Nikon body so I can leave this lens on permanently and my zoom on my original. Worth every penny spent!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This lense is AWESOME! ... As soon as I got home after receiving it I started using it to take macro shots as well as some portraits. This lense is extremely sharp and quick to focus. This is now the lens that I keep on my camera most of the time. The only thing about this lens that limits it is that it is not a zoom lens so you do have to move a lot. I knew that already so was already prepared for that. I would love to get the 105mm version of this so it will be easier to got super close up macro shots of insects and other wildlife but that one is out of my price range. I love this lens though and will be getting a lot of use out of it. It is very well built as well.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great macro lens This is the first lens for my first D800. I bought this first because of its cost performance. This lens has also got the highest point among all other lenses in a Japanese major comparison site. After I used it, I understood why it's so poplar. I especially like its very soft and smooth bokeh it makes. Even Zeiss lens makes more distracting bokeh compared with this AF-S Micro-Nikkor 60mm f/2.8G ED . It also makes great images for normal shots. But when you shoot large space like landscape, I think it would be its weak point compared with other expensive normal lenses.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent macro, portrait, slide copy I use this for macro photography where it excels for its price range, and for portraits where it is excellent on my D90 DX, giving a 90mm (in 35mm) short telephoto. It has a flat field, allowing it to be used to copy slides and other graphic material, including paintings. I often recommend it to my oil and water color painter friends as an ideal lens for taking photos of their artworks, due to its ability to move in close, for small paintings and plein air sketches, and the flat field does not distort the painting at the edges. I've even found it useful for night and astrophotography.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty good lens I am a commercial photographer specializing in plumbing fixtures. I bought this lens to replace my venerable 60mm micro which I had for 12 years. The new version is not quite as sharp, but the new coatings make a noticeable difference on the glare off the image sensor. The AF-S system is a huge improvement, as it both extends the cameras battery life and makes continuous focus a much better option for off tripod use. Build quality is solid, and this one comes with a hood. Not much negative to say, I just wish it had a Full/Limit switch. Overall a good lens for the price.
