I got the lens on special from B&H for $99.00 just before Christmas.


It's 267 Euro here in Germany (= 320 USD). Did you get a used lens?

New. I think they are $149.00 now.


Very strange. The lowest price in Germany is 267 Euro:

US marketing is different from European. Sporadic no margin sales are
used to get attention for a brand. Rarely done here...

I think the 60 mm has a more useful working range, though. I've enjoyed
mine (working on a Panasonic GX7).

I'd like a 150-180mm as things like insects are skittish, but they don't make it.


Nikon makes a fine 200 micro lens. my personal preference though has
become the 105. When used on an APS c it's right within your range.
You can also put an extension tube on a macro.m
