  2. It is one of the best Nikon lenses (and not only for macro).
    Extremely sharp too.

    Spot on.
     
  6. The 60/2.8 is an outstanding lens. With the mult. factor of digital it makes an outstanding portrait lens.
    I see that you have an F4s coming your way.
    That was my all time favorite camera before digital. I went digital, ended up selling my F4s and don't regret it.
    But if you want to shoot film, I cannot imagine a finer camera.
    Enjoy it and let us know how you like it when you get it!

    hey, well thats for the support guys... i broke the bank with my new equipment but it really feels like it'll be worth it. too bad i have the focal length tripled...

    That 60 micro is renowned as one of the sharpest made by Nikon. You will however find that it is not popular as a portrait lens because it is too sharp (shows all the wrinkles). Great lens

    nothing a little photoshop can't fix... right?
     
  10. Right. It's much easier to introduce a little blur than to sharpen things up!

    so onto another question... in all practicality... can i skip buying my 35-70 2.8 if i own the 60 2.8? just use the ol'e foot zoom? or should i quadruple the focal range (approximate)

    well, it showed up today (finally) and so far i love it. i havent shot any digital with it, just film, but the negs looked great. and the new F4s is working just as good! i'm so excited.
