I have used this lens on a Nikon D3X. CONS: 1 On black and white resolution charts with a chart 80 cm across filling the FX area the lens gave lower resolution than an AIS f4 105 mm Micro Nikkor or PC Micro Nikkor 85 mm f 2.8 D. 2 It has noticeable barrel distortion and vignetting. 3 It has a short working distance as it is not a higher focal length, but the longer Micro lenses I have tried do not perform well enough. It is comparable to AIS f2.8 55 mm of which I have worn out three examples. It is not always practical for field use and I may have to carry a longer lens as I had to with the 55 mm Micro. 4 Does not take extension rings. PROS: 1 Easy to focus as it is f2.8 and is not manual. Autofocus worked perfectly even at closest focus. Very clear image on 'zoomed' Live View. 2 Focus control tight with little backlash. Old f4 105 mm is bad and needs the focus ring locking. 3 Should be more weather-proof and mechanically strong than the 85 mm PC Micro which is a delicate design. 4 Focusses to 1:1. Does not need extension rings! 5 G type lens. Aperture changes do not interfere with close focus setting. Excellent for taking aperture series! f9 is sharpest over the maximum field, but through to f16 is necessary to increase DOF. f16 is acceptable on some subjects. 6 It significantly outperformed the other lenses at 1:2 reproduction on fabric samples. Probably due to better maintenance of focus. Pictures taken using a remote release and 'Mirror up' in Live View. 7 Quick and easy to use outside in a snowstorm taking close ups of flowers on plants. Individual pollen grains are visible in pictures. Lens hood was adequate as the lens is commendably narrow. This was not true of the 24 - 70 mm f2.8 which retired with a wet filter. 8 Landscape pictures are without fault! Conclusion: A worthy replacement for the AIS f2.8 55 mm which was for years my standard lens used with Kodachrome 25 and Ektar 25. On the 24 MP D3X it outperforms the sensor. Few other lenses I have tried do so. The pictures I have taken so far are visually extremely satisfying.

This lens is perfect for our specialist field of interest which is underwater macro photography of very small things. That being said, it is currently used as our general all-round lens for above water work which is mostly portraits. Mounted on a D70 the autofocus seems swift and accurate and the colour rendition superb. Its not the smallest lens available but compared to the rest of the gear we use underwater - its no issue!
