Looking for good quality used 60 mm lense while i save for a 200mm.
I've been looking for one for...well, it seems like forever! It seems like I miss all the good deals (both on forums and eBay )
Wish me luck. I may have to go ahead and just buy a new one.
Good luck! I have no doubt that the 60 f/2.8 is worth the 'new' price, but I'm a starving college student, hahaha.
How about a MF 55 while you wait? Do you think you'll really need AF that much for macro work? I find I turn off AF on my 200micro quite frequently.
I will consider the 55mm. Thanks for your advice.
Oh my gosh, I'm getting the 60mm f/2.8D on Thursday (day after tomorrow)!!! I am so insanely happy right now....so my head will probably explode when I actually GET IT.
Congrats! But maybe you should take precautions and tape your head or something :lol: , would be a pity if such a pretty face bursts into pieces :lol:
Please don't overlook Sigma 50mm EX non DG.
Really well made/built and very very sharp. On some tests it even beat the Nikon. You won't regret that sigma. I found it stunning.
The beauty of the 60mm micro is that it's very versatile. It's an excellent portrait lens, and good for general purpose work, too. I use it in manual focus mode for product work, but would get much less use from it if it didn't have AF for all that other stuff.
Darn - I just sold mine.
But I used it for a good cause . . . to fund D2X
Good luck - one thing though, I found it too sharp for portraits but an absolute killer for macro work.
I am considering the 55 Micro as this lens is said to be a better performer at "infinity". Any opinions on this - compared to the 60 mm?

Grace! - did you get your lens? Bjørn's review not-withstanding, I think the 60's an excellent lens for anything that's a meter or less in front of you. It'll give you the ultimate in detail in that range.
Yes, I got it!! Oh my goodness, it is such a sweet lens. I'm going to be playing with it ALL day today (my friends are throwing a going away party for one our best buds and you can BET i'm going to go crazy with it). I generally do my macros in close range, and I can get up to about 5 inches with this baby and get super sharp images :drool:
I'll definitely post my results tonight. I can't wait!
I am anxious to see the posts with the new lense. I am glad you were able to get one so quickly.
Looking forward to your posts as well. It's a great little lens and one of my favorites...
