THis is a great lense.. but honestly.. I dumped it for the Tamron 90mm f2.8 and the Nikon 55mm Micro Nikkor AIS lens.

Found both lenses to be optically sharper and produced much more detail at 2.8 wide open then the 60mm did..

Also consider a cheaper solution.. extension tubes.. and/or reversal rings..

The 60mm Micro produces contrasty and SUPER sharp pictures. But you have to live with the short working distance of the lens, which may not ideal for macro photography.

Thanks guys for your comments and replies. Any idea how much does AP or CP charge this lens cost? The price at Nikon website is $760 which is kind of pricey. I am also looking at other brands as alternatives. Any recommendations? Thanks

Hi...try Lords also...they have competitive prices ~ if via NETS or cash...Can be $20 odd dollars cheaper than CP, AP or John.

Good luck...oh yes...look for James.

Cheers
