Default If you cant beat them.......


Up for sale is my excellent 60mm macro.Only reason I am selling is I have just brought a 50mm 1.8 which tbh will get more use than this.I seldom do macro anymore so it just stays in the bag.It is a very very sharp lens with fast AF.You only have to read the reviews to know how good this is!
Its in fantastic condition with no marks I can see and comes boxed with soft pouch,hood and both nikon end caps. Price is firm at 290 plus p&p by RMSD. Bank transfer only or cash on collection

Lol, when I first read the thread title I thought it was going to say you had bought a Canon!

40mm is too short imo for macro next to no working distance. Go on you know you want to

That's what my thinking was until I seen slipperys photos recently. Give me a couple of days to think about it and I'll get back to you, if it isn't sold before then that is.

40mm is nice sharp lens but to get 1:1 macro your only an inch or two away from your subject.You can use any lens and crop it in but you will lose quality.
I have a 35mm 1.8 so see no need for a 40 mm when that focuses to within a foot anyway and is faster.The 60mm afs version is one of nikons best macros..
