Love it! I've had this lens for about 2 weeks and I'm so happy I purchased it. I truly love it. June 13, 2013
One of the best from Nikon Super Sharp. Incredible Nikon build. It doesn't get much better than this. It's on my F3 film camera most of the time. Classic! April 30, 2013
Everyday lens This lens has rarely left my D700 FX camera since purchasing the 28mm new in July 2012. Perspective is just about perfect for street photography and landscapes. Images have a sharp "feel" (beyond technical sharpness) and I like the color renditions better than the most moden Nikkors. This is a great lens for telling stories. And, I like to tell stories. Note. If you have always been an autofocus user (as I have been), do not worry about manual focussing this lens on a Nikon FX camera. Easy. Fast. Any minor inconveniences easily out-weighed by excellent pictures. October 1, 2012
perfect 28mm i get these lens in used condition, but performance is just about perfect and its work great on my APSC sensor D90. i love the sharpness, color rendition and close focus of this lens. i have several nikkor ais family, and i use nikkor 28mm F/2.8 most of the time. this is great lens, buy one and you'll love this lens. February 28, 2012
Excellent I found this lens to be excellent in quality and performance. The ease of use is great. I'm new to the SLR world and the quality of photos is exceptional. December 11, 2011

According to compatible lenses information for the D60, I cannot see if this lens work or not? Would I need an adapter ring?

Answer: 
You do NOT need any type of adaptor ring for this lens. Remember that this is a manual focus lens so it will not autofocus with any Nikon camera body, even the pro FX bodies can not focus this lens. Also, with a D60 body, your camera's metering system will not automagically meter your exposures for you. Which means all scene modes, aperature priority, and shutter priority will not work. You should, however, be able to use this lens in Manual Mode. Setting the D60 to manual mode should allow you to adjust the shutter speed. You would then, of course, choose the ISO speed you want to use in the camera. But you will not be able to select an aperture setting in the camera. You must use the aperture ring that's built into the lens to select your aperture - just like the good ole days. Just remember that if you're not familiar with manual exposure, prepare for a lot of trial and error shots. I use this lens with my D90 (which also doesn't meter AIS lenses) in the way I just described. It can be frustrating at first but I'm actually getting pretty good at getting the exposures right the first time. Also, EV bracketing is a great way to start out. Not to mention my little iPhone light meter app which can provide a decent starting point to work with. I'm not sure about the D60, but my D90 has an infrared focus meter which turns red in the viewfinder when the selected focus point is in focus. Also keep in mind that no EXIF data is written to your picture files, which is a bummer when you're trying to learn full manual exposure through trial and error by looking at photos you just imported into Lightroom. Having said all that, I have absolutely no regrets about buying this incredible lens. The image and build quality is second to none. I hope this helps.

Answer: 
It can be used but because the camera doesn't have an internal focus motor, it won't auto focus.

Answer: 
does the phrase "economies of scale" ring a bell for you? nikon doesn't make as many of the older AIS lenses as it does modern models, hence they're more costly. have you ever used a manual focus lens? if so, you know how well-built and solid they are. the optical formula is often the same as the AF equivalents, so they sport superior optics. remember, too, how some of the german brand lenses are also manual focus, and sport price tags in the stratosphere. manual focus is not synonymous with "cheap".

Answer: 
The manual focus lens is more expensive to build. It has 8 elements in 8 groups as compared to 6 element in 6 groups for the autofocus variey. The manual focus lens also has a coupling prong for older metering systems and also has a more robust build. There are also those who prefer its optics as well.

Answer: 
Nikon offers two types of autofocus digital camera bodies: those with a built-in focus drive motor and those which require a lens to have a motor. Cameras such as the D3000 do not have a focus motor in it so they require the lens to have the focusing motor – an “AF-S” lens. While these bodies can use a lens with no focus motor (an “AF” lens) you would have to manually turn the focus ring to bring the subject in to sharp focus.
