    Pros: Great image quality Fast Autofocus Manual focus ring isn\'t bad for a Nikon Lightweight

    Cons: Close focus on FX cameras is about 3-4 inches.

    Pros: Light, substantial feeling and smooth autofocus. Photos look sharp.

    Summary: Too slow for Portrait shooting, but can be used in a pinch. No VR is inhibiting in low light situations. It isn't my go to lens for macros very often due to the close focus distance and issues with shadow cast, but I do love the image quality.

    Cons: None.

    Pros: Compact 1:1 macro, great IQ with fast auto-focus. I use three Nikon macros (60G, 105VR and 200) depending on subject matter and working distance requirements. When I want to carry a macro and travel light this is the lens I carry. Works satisfactorily as a portrait lens on DX too.

    Summary: Terrific!

    Cons: A bit expensive. Need to get real, real close to achieve 1:1 reproduction.

    Pros: Superb optical quality. Excellent contrast; very solid performer wide open. Great as a macro and as a portrait lens.

    Summary: I love my Nikkor 105mm VR, but the images I've been getting from the 60mm have been blowing me away.
