Fine lens No problems... Nice micro. Easy to use. What you would expect in a Nikon lens. July 2, 2014
versatile and sharp This lens provides the versatility that I needed when traveling in Thailand, I shot scenery and portrait using this lens with very satisfying results. I recommend this lens when you are traveling light and want sharp quality for all conditions. Excellent in low light conditions, great depth of field. March 16, 2014
Excellent I have gotten some really excellent close-up shots with this lens. Amazing image quality. I've been using it for general photography as well and it works great. The only thing to note is that in order to get true 1:1 macro shots you will need to be within an inch of your subject. If you are hoping to get shots of insects that won't like that then you may want to consider a longer focal length. August 23, 2013
Wonderful Clarity I bought this lens to add to my professional kit. I never thought I could hand hold a camera still enough for a macro shot but I was wrong. This is a fantastic lens that lives up to every expectation you can ever imagine you would need a macro lens for. Don't dither, buy it! June 11, 2013
Prime Example of Fine Art This lens loves doing Micro work and feels like a natural fit on your camera body.. It is small, light, and does double duty as your standard lens in a single package. It works very well in situations for working in botanical gardens, in the park or where tight crops or wider whole plant portraiture is important. You can't ask for a better walk around lens with Micro capabilities than this 60mm. Makes almost anything pop off the page with detail. I love it because it is short, compact, carry proof for all day outings, and has a wider field of view for whole plant portraiture. May 3, 2013

Answer: 
There are some problems with the auto focus with this lens and the D7000. It has a lot of trouble focusing on subjects that are initially far out of focus. You can manually adjust the focus near the subject, then use auto focus to get it right though. It's very strange.
