Nikkor AF-S Micro 60mm f2.8G ED
Written by Gordon Laing
The Nikkor Micro 60mm f2.8 is a high quality close-up lens which will work on both DX and FX bodies. The maximum reproduction is 1:1, allowing you to capture subjects at actual size for excellent close-ups, while the f2.8 aperture enables blurred backgrounds. Mounted on a DX body it also makes a good portrait option. Sadly there’s no VR, but it does come-in much cheaper than the 105mm model below. If you want VR at this price and are not using an FX body, consider the DX 85mm.
I hope to add sample images and comparisons with this lens in the future.
