Re: Anyone TEST the Nikon 60mm AF-S? (aside from what is on the web)

Hey Frank,

I tested the lens at F/2.8, F/4, F/5.6,  F/7.1, F/8, F/9. Even at F/9 I didn't like the corners of the 60G at the distances I was using - the 50/1.8G was clearly superior, although don't get me wrong, the 60 wasn't "bad" in the corners either.

As for bad sample - I tend to doubt it since I had an early batch made-in-Japan version with no centering defects that tested very well at closer distances, but one never knows. Given my results with other lenses on the D800E, it doesn't at all surprise me that a lens designed for macro and closer in work shows a few limitations at greater distances on this very demanding body and scene that may not conform well to the field curvature of the lens.
