Full review of the Coastal Optics 60mm f/4 UV-VIS-IR APO MACRO is found in DAP.

This page shows photographs taken with the Coastal 60/4 APO macro in visible light.

Color examples

The total lack of any residual color aberrations results in very high image quality with unadulterated color, an especially lovely combination with the beautiful tonal and color quality of the Nikon D3. Especially notable is the total absence of out-of-focus green/magenta color fringes seen with most other lenses; this leads to an especially natural look.

The Nikon D3 and Coastal 60/4 work together beautifully. The Nikon D3 offers exceptionally smooth high quality pixels, and the Coastal 60/4 contributes image rays free of virtually all aberrations, especially the disturbing magenta/green color fringes seen with so many other lenses on out-of-focus areas. The result is pure, unadulterated color.

Brick wall [Nikon D3]

Shot at f/8 for depth of field considerations. Focus was on the brick wall, but might have been slightly off. Obtaining critical focus is always a technical requirement, even with Live View.

This image shows the beautiful color and bokeh (background blur) possible with the 60/4.

The Coastal 60/4 provides striking color rendition; its total lack of chromatic errors means that the color comes through in all its subtlety as in this “spring green” scenery. After shooting with the lens for a while, one notice a certain dullness with many other lenses (though not all); they impart a slight veil over the natural rendition—the 60/4 always delivers.

The Coastal 60/4 delivers outstanding detail even on the 21 megapixel Canon EOS 1Ds Mark III, right out to the corners, though f/8 seems to be required on the Canon 1Ds Mark III to bring the extreme corners to perfection. Click to see a larger image and actual-pixels.

Many lenses would have a difficult time with a scene like this: white streaks on saturated red. The chances of red/cyan color fringing would be very high. But nowhere in the frame can even a trace of such color fringing be found with the Coastal 60/4. (Note: this image was shot handheld from a car and isn't at peak sharpness).
