First New Lens Ever Purchased

 

I haven\'t had a lot of use with this lens yet but what experience I have has been extremely positive. I bought this to round out my kit and was allured by the macro capability. As someone who has never worked with a macro lens before it blew my mind...

great for dental photography

 

use with rebel xsi, mr-14 ring flash, aperature at 29 or 32 and shutter speed 1/60. get great depth of field and incredible detail

takes great before and after photos of patients teeth. When I put patients pictures up on the screen, I can zoom in on the smallest detail and patients can clearly see and understand what I see. The smallest details are clearly obvious. Patients can...

will sometimes hunt for focus, but I manual focus anyway

great macro and portrait lens

 

60 mm is too short a focal length for photographing insects - you get too close to the subject and it flies away. If you like hunting bugs then you should consider a longer focal length lens that will give the same magnification from a greater distance.

A true 1:1 macro lens. Very sharp. This focal length works beautifully as a portrait lens too. Nice bokeh at f2.8 ; There's real-time manual focus or you can use the manual/auto switch ; Takes inexpensive 52mm filters. The front does not rotate when...

EF-S mount so it won't work on full frame bodies. Sometimes autofocus gets VERY confused and hunts a lot (you should use manual focus for macro instead)

Canon EF-S 60mm f/2.8 Macro USM Lens

 

Definitely worth the money.

Amazing macro abilities, every picture I've taken with this lens has turned out far beyond beautiful. It's easy to use, and I love the small DEF. Definitely recommended to any photographer interested in doing macro work. Its also great for portraits

Lens "hunts" a little in AF mode, but besides that I haven't found any other problems with it

Incredible lens

 

One of the best Nikon macro lenses you can buy. Highly recommended.

Razor sharp, quality build, little (if any) distortion. Far superior to the 18-135 mm kit lens

Auto focus on my D80 isn't always able to focus

Consumer review by:

Nice lens

 

This is a great portrait lens. Not the best walk around lens but it does take nice clean shots. Very clear and sharp

Since it is a 60 mm macro lens the DOF isnt large

What I wanted when I wanted it

 

I got this lens because I am particularly interested in doing macro photography as a pastime, not a professional. It looked like the best lens for this purpose as it lacked only image stabilization which is minimally helpful at such close distances...

Easily Interchangeable ; Fast / accurate auto-focus
