AF-S Micro NIKKOR 60mm f/2.8G ED

Go Back


Popular 60mm macro lens with 1:1 reproduction ratio for use with Nikon FX and DX format digital SLRs. The whisper-quiet autofocus delivered by the Silent Wave Motor (SWM), fixed focal-length internal focus system and non-rotating objective lens makes it ideal for getting really close to subjects. Exceptionally high-quality optics produce outstanding close-up results and make the lens a viable alternative for general-purpose use.
