  • Nikon 55mm f/2.8 AIS Micro-Nikkor

    9 out of 10 points and recommended
    Small and tack sharp when stopped down

    This lens is not quite as sharp as the Nikkor 105 f2.8 ais lens but it is darned close. I purchased mine slightly used in the early 90's and use it almost daily for copy work. It performs well on my Nikon D2X and Nikon D700. I almost never use this lens at f stops wider than f8 and always with a sturdy tripod. My copy is a little finicky in focusing. The focus appears to jump or skip just a little at certain focusing distances.
