Re: Advice on pick for DX - 60mm Micro or 85 1.8G

The 60mm has a very short focus throw once you get past 1 meter.  It can make manual focusing difficult, and I found it affected autofocus accuracy as well - I tended to have a lot of "misses" when playing with it on my D7000, especially on non-static targets (e.g., a person who will move a little bit, even when standing still).  The 85mm is much more accurate in that aspect, at least in my experience.
