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:saturnine said: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.
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.rebrewer said:Do you think you'll really need AF that much for macro work? I find I turn off AF on my 200micro quite frequently.
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:Chris101 said: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.
