Full review of the Coastal Optics 60mm f/4 UV-VIS-IR APO MACRO is found in DAP.
This section shows photographs taken with the Coastal 60/4 APO macro in ultraviolet light, or at least an attempt at it: I do not have UV-capable camera.
The example below shows the Nikon D3 using the Coastal 60/4 with the Baader “Venus” filter (original). Chances are that some of this is UV, but a lot of it might be infrared— hard to say.
If the aim is to shoot ultraviolet, there are several other options. Here are a few:
- Coastal Optics 105/4.5 APO macro (250-650nm correction)
- Tochigi-Nikon UV-105/4.5, see the specifications.
This lens is very similar to the original UV-Nikkor, perhaps even the same design.
- A used Nikon 105/4 UV-Nikkor
All of these options are more limited in spectral range than the Coastal 60/4 APO macro. They might not offer the same level of performance in other ways as well (flare resistance, color rendition, etc).
