Anyone TEST the Nikon 60mm AF-S? (aside from what is on the web)
Nov 8, 2012

I see some rather outstanding resolution numbers when used with DX. However, these were acquired at fairly close distances. On the-digital-picture.com I see the 60mm AF-S out performing the legendary 105 AF-S VR (barely). Can this be true. Anyone have actual testing experience with this lens - at other than micro settings? Photozone also gave great scores. I used the 105 for many years but gave it up when I went DX. Pretty heavy lens. The 60mm is much lighter.

The test below was with the D3x body.
