The Micro-Nikkor 55mm f/3.5 AI, is considered one of Nikons sharpest lenses. The AI version of the Micro-Nikkor is like you might expect a upgrade of the Pre-AI version. It shares the same optical formula of five elements in 4 groups. The only diffirence between the Pre-AI and AI version is the AI spec. You have to go back to the 55 f/3.5 Micro-P.C to se a diffirence between the lenses, at least as far as the look of the lenses goes. As most of Nikon's manual focus Micro-Nikkor's it only goes to1:2 macro, and needs a PK-13 or a bellows to reach 1:1 macro.

  • Sharp. Incredible resolution with this lens.
  • Infinity focus, this is the macro lens with the best infinity focus I have tested so far.
  • Price, on the second hand market this lens sells quite cheap
  • DOF/IR markings


  • 1:2 macro, you need pk-13 or a bellows to get 1:1 macro with this lens.
  • At maximum magnification there is not much room left in front of the lens.



This lens is crisp and sharp, with good contrast. The Micro-Nikkor 55mm is excellent for small product shots. In my opinion, if you want a macro lens, go for a manual focus lens, and you might as well go for the best of the best, the Micro-Nikkor 55mm f/3.5. This lens is sharper then the Micro-Nikkor f/2.8.
