    Very impressed.

    I had read reviews of the AF-S Micro NIKKOR 60mm f/2.8G ED but had never seen one in the flesh so to speak. I had the chance to have a play with a sample the other day and it seems to be as good as everyone claims.
    The sharpness is on a par with an old model Tamron 90mm we have but the Nikkor is far superior when it comes to colour, contrast and chromatic aberration as well as focussing very rapidly.

    I really think that it is probably the best bargain in lenses from Nikon for a long time. A couple of hand held sample shots. Both auto white balance, 6400 iso and NEF files converted to jpeg with an in camera picture control applied.

    1/200 F/8

    1/800 F/2.8
    Nikon, Fuji, Nikkor, Sigma, Tamron, Tokina and too many other bits and pieces to list.

    I had the AFD version mate was tack sharp ..but like a fool I sold it!!...i found that 60mm was too short for a macro lens..but it was great on a dx camera for portraits and I wish I still had it !

    Id imagine the AFS version would be very good indeed
    Cheers and my name is Steve

    OMD Em1...Now with two lenses !

    That was probably the only thing stopping me getting one .. working distances.

    Oh yeah!... plus the point that it has no aperture collar, and hence is useless on a bellows(my main reason to acquire one).
