Free Macro Lense


Established Member
I recenly aquired this for free from a work friend, is it any good for macro work ?

55mm f/2.8 Micro Nikkor

It will be going on my Nikon D60, i am guessing it have to be in total manual mode to use this.

If its not very good for macro is it possible to add any sort of extension tube to it ?

I'm sure its great, most macro lenses are.

Macro is usualy best done with manual focus anyhow (and live view if you have it).

You should be able to use extension tubes with it but at 55mm you will be working quite close to the lens so light will be an issue.
