    Hello friends, I just bought used Micro 60mm D, and was wondering what would be the optimal Aperture for this lens. Did the research, but could not find anything. Thank you.

    Here is a lab test with some graphs and stuff: Micro-Nikkor AF 60mm f/2.8 D - Review / Test Report - Analysis

    It looks like the center peaks at f/5.6 and the edges at f/8. Shooting macro however, due to depth of field you'll likely end up stopping down more than this. This lens still does quite nice at f/16, which is a little more practical up close.
