Focus is acceptable if using the "limit" switch. Macro is usually best done with a tripod and manual focus.craftsman wrote: ↑Oct 7th, 2007 6:20 pmAlways has been a sharp lens - the "recipe" for the lens has been around for decades.
There are really only two issues:
1. It's 60mm. You will find that the working distance to the subject is rather small - ie. you might have to get really close to get the shot you want.
2. Focus is really slow since it's a macro lens.

Not a problem. In addition to the Micro Nikkor 60/2.8 I frequently use a Nikon 18-200VR, Nikon 50/1.8, Sigma EX 70-200/2.8, and a Sigma EX 10-20. I've also got some less fancy glass in a Tamron 28-200 (currently for sale) and I've owned the usual assortment of entry level lenses.

Nothing comes close for bokeh, and the only lens that can touch it for sharpness is the 50/1.8 stopped down a couple stops.
I'm sure you'll love yours.
