    This lens is not as sharp as the 55 2.8 manual micro Nikkor. Softer corners and very crude manual focusing if you switch to that mode. Either mine was a bad specimen or pass on this one.

    I had this lens for a few years an used it with a D300, so it was really a 90 macro. Very sharp, and easy to focus. Could leave on the camera all day and not be bothered by the weight. I do miss it.
