All that said, it's not without flaws. I notice green and purple chromatic aberration on a regular basis. It shows up especially in high contrast areas, but even when I make attempts to minimize it by changing lighting, I can still see faint traces of it. Fortunately Lightroom can remove most of the aberration. But I would suspect that if one bought the "next lens up", i.e. the more expensive one, you would not have as much of an issue.
Before I buy this lens, I rented a 60mm sigma macro lens.
On my D700 the results sucked big time! Sigma's lens is DX and the minimum shooting distance is too far.
So, the results sucked, it took me sometime to decide to get the Nikon 60mm Macro.
The lens works perfectly on both DX and FX cameras, most importantly for me it gives the full frame on FX.
Sharpness and quality, you'll see them instantly with the first shot.
You can shoot as close as 3-4cm if you use manual focus.
I use it to shoot Diamonds and now I actually see the diamond while the equivalent sigma made it look like a frozen spit.
The focusing speed is a little slow. It will take some time to focus, so don't hold your breath! But I use a tripod to shoot anyway, so it's not a big deal for me.
Cut down my D700's 51 focus points to only one!
It's a little small and long for my D700 so whenever I put the camera on a table it makes it fall. It's nothing really. But you'd have to be careful.
Overall an excellent lens, would certainly recommend it, worth every penny! And I'd say GO for it!
BUT! Product should be labeled to indicate if item being purchased is U. S. product or Foreign (GREY Market). Nikon USA will not service any product if it is not imported by them and sold by an authorized vendor. Amazon has not responded to an inquiry concerning buyer's ability to identify grey market product prior to purchase. Another lens (18-200mm) purchased from Amazon, was denied service by Nikon and identified as grey market product.
