Nikon 60mm f/2.8 Micro Nikkor

My friend John from Western Wind Photography challenged me to go out tonight and shoot some macro shots with my new (new to me) Nikon 60mm f/2.8 Micro Nikkor lens. I’ve read many reviews stating this lens was one of the sharpest in the 50-60 mm range under $250. I had to give it a try. I looked around at the and saw many things to shoot but a new world opened up to me when I started to get uncomfortably close. I switched to manual focus mode racked it to the closest setting and placed the lens almost on top of some dandelions and pine tree. You can judge the quality for yourself. I, for one, am really impressed with the sharpness and how close you can get to an object. Needless to say, I won’t be photographing any wasps.
