I don't understand why this lens gets 4 stars for optical quality. To my opinion this is a little overrated, because it is not that fantastic on several aspects:
Certainly for a brand new 60-mm lens I would expect a better resolution.
In terms of resolution it is better than the older lens, which I know to be absolutely first rate. In terms of CA it is comparable to the older lens (though they can only measure one form of CA). I have never seen CA on the older lens. Not ever and I use it every weekend. Rorslett makes a similar comment about the absence of CA. So I think it probably is a top lens. Though I am rather sceptical of these Imatest tests.
Ok, first, this lens shows some CA when you open the files in View NX. Open them in Capture NX2 and, surprice!, there's no CA left in the pictures! Whatever Nikon did with the lens, they corrected it in the CNX2 :biggrin:
That is also true of the 14-24mm lens. :smile: One point to note is that NX does not automatically turn on CA correction, whereas NX2 does. Even then NX2 CA correction is better, at least for the 14-24mm lens.
The AF-S 60 is a superb lens, no matter what "photozone" says.
The AF-S 60 gets 5 of 5 points (DX and FX), the AF-S 105 just 4 (DX and FX).
Ill stick with my 50/2 makro planar.
Luckily the new 60 micro perform alot better then it looks and handle, lets hope Nikon change their design for their new primes.
