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.


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.
