Re: 60mm 2.8 AF-D or 55mm Micro 2.8 Ai?

My 55 2.8 is super sharp on my D300 at macro range but disappointing at a distance. I would not recommend it for your work. According to Bjorn Rorslett's review, the AFS Micro-Nikkor 60 mm f/2.8 ED G N would be a much better option.

Also, had you considered the 45 mm f/2.8 PC-E Micro-Nikkor ED N? I would think this would serve you well for both architectural work and general photography. It would also give you more room for creativity.
