It produces beautiful bokeh (background blur) at its wider aperture settings, and with its wide focusing range, the AF-S Micro NIKKOR 60mm f/2.8G ED is not limited to extreme close-up photography—achieve great results with nearly any subject.

Crisp sharpness from life-size (1:1) to infinity

Discover a world of extreme clarity and unseen detail with close-up shooting only achievable with a macro lens. The AF-S Micro NIKKOR 60mm f/2.8G ED is a compact, versatile macro lens capable of producing stunning sharpness with beautiful bokeh (background blur) in a wide range of focus distances from infinity to life-size (1:1).

Fast f/2.8 aperture and versatile focal length

Thanks to a broad focusing range and a wide f/2.8 maximum aperture, the AF-S Micro NIKKOR 60mm f/2.8G ED can be used for more than just close-up shooting. Create truly spectacular portraits and more with exquisite levels of detail. Nikon’s exclusive Silent Wave Motor (SWM) enables ultra-fast, ultra-quiet autofocusing performance with seamless manual focus override for increased versatility.

Silent Wave Motor

AF-S NIKKOR lenses feature Nikon’s Silent Wave Motor (SWM). This technology converts “traveling waves” into rotational energy to focus the optics. This enables high-speed autofocusing that's extremely accurate and super quiet.

Nano Crystal Coat

An anti-reflective coating developed by Nikon that virtually eliminates internal lens element reflections across a wide range of wavelengths. Nano Crystal Coat solves ghost effects caused by red light and effectively reduces ghost and flare caused by light entering the lens diagonally.

ED (Extra-Low Dispersion) Glass

An optical glass developed by Nikon that is used with normal optical glass in telephoto lenses to obtain optimum correction of chromatic aberrations.

AS

AS stands for Aspherical lens elements. This type of lens utilizes non-spherical surfaces on either one or both sides of the glass in order to eliminate certain types of lens aberration.

M/A

Select NIKKOR lenses have a focusing mode which allows switching from automatic to manual focusing with virtually no lag time by simply turning the focusing ring on the lens. This makes it possible to seamlessly switch to fine manual focusing while looking through the viewfinder.

IF Lens

A NIKKOR lens in which only the internal lens group shifts during focusing. Thus, IF NIKKORS do not change in size during AF operation, allowing for compact, lightweight lenses capable of closer focusing distances. These lenses will be designated with the abbreviation IF on the lens barrel.

Those looking for a short focal length macro lens for their Nikon camera can't go far wrong with this new 60mm from Nikon. It is competitively priced and well featured, with the fast silent wave focusing motor and Nano Crystal lens coatings.

Those few mistakes which we managed to find don’t change the fact that we deal here with a splendid lens. The most important thing is that it provides very good image quality across the frame up from the maximum relative aperture. It is exactly the most appreciated feature in a macro lens.

This is my favourite lens. It’s sharp, razor sharp, right across the frame (DX in my case) at all apertures. I’ve heard people say that it focuses slower than the Nikon 105mm macro lens but when I tried the two side by side in the shop before buying this lens I found that on a D7000 or D7100 the...

Nikon's latest 60mm Micro lens replaces the old D version and adds a silent wave focusing motor, a bright f/2.8 maximum aperture, internal focusing and can be picked up for around £365. This lens is compatible with both FX and DX format cameras.

Imaging Resource

In its own right, the Nikon 60mm ƒ/2.8 AF-S is an excellent lens, providing excellent results for sharpness, tolerance to CA and almost no distortion. Light falloff is a little noticeable when mounted on a DX body, and very significant on a full-frame body like the D3, but only if you shoot wide...

An excellent macro lens for capturing detail close up. Try it on a spider's web covered in dew or rain drops on a leaf. Sharpness is excellent with good contrast. It's one of those lenses that you don't know you need until you use it.

This lens will do it all (macro, portraits, landscape, action). I always have it with me.

Too slow for Portrait shooting, but can be used in a pinch. No VR is inhibiting in low light situations. It isn't my go to lens for macros very often due to the close focus distance and issues with shadow cast, but I do love the image quality.

I wanted a better macro lens for photographing the rings at weddings. Nikon's 105mm Micro lens had too shallow a depth of field and was difficult to focus handheld. The 60mm Micro is much lighter and easier to focus although this is best done manually.

Doesn't look much for the money, but is a seriously good lens.Especially good indoors.

I use the Nikon 105mm micro for a lot of my work. Sometimes it's a little long though, so recently I bought the new 60mm f2.8 AFS G macro for a couple of food projects. The wider angle of view was perfect, but, using the 105mm as THE industry standard in terms of sharpness and overall image quality,...
