I will try to help you, but please understand that my experience is with Nikon film cameras. Assuming that the D60 works in a manner similar to a Nikon 35 mm body and that Sigma macro lens work like Nikon macro lens, you should be able to determine the usable subject to lens distance by experimentation. First, make sure the lens is in the macro mode. To do this you must set the auto-focus mode control to the manual focus mode (see your manual). On Nikon lenses, you must first set the focus ring to infinity, then move slider switch, which has two positions marked; "normal" and "macro., to the macro position. You should now be able to rotate the focus ring to the macro range. Use the zoom ring to zoom in and out and focus with the focus ring. The the range over which the lens to subject to lens distance will yield an in focus image will be rather limited and in the range of an inch or so to 6 or 8 inches.

Sigma lens manuals


Chuck, sorry for the late response. Last days I had to work through several hundred anonymous questions. Most irrelevant and not complete, so I could not answer most of them, but I had to read them all.
Sigma, does not have a service, where you can download a manual. But the manuals from Nikon, most of the time don't tell anything about how to use the lens.
I found a page with all specs. The link is down here.

I have to guess why you did put the question here in the first place. I think because you have a Nikon camera without a focus motor. Like a D3x00 or the D5x00 or a D40 or D60. (for the x you can add 0 1 2 or 3)
If you have one of these camera's the lens can't be used with auto focus You only can use the lens in manual focus. Most other camera's from Nikon, like D80 D90 D7000 D300 and more expensive, all do have a focus motor and can work with this lens in full automatic focus mode.

Would a Sigma 50mm 1:28 DG Macro work on a Nikon N8008 SLR film


Sigma makes lenses with a variety of mounts. Assuming the lens has a Nikon mount, then yes, it will work fine on the N8008.

Will Sigma 70-300mm f/4-5.6 DL fit a canon D60


Sigma make this lens with different mountings (i.e. Canon, Nikon, Sony/Minolta, Pentax and Sigma). So, if you get this lens with the Canon mounting - yes it'll work with your D60. Any other mounting will not fit on your camera. Hope that helps

How do you make af work on nikon 3000, using a sigma 70-300 f4-5.6 dg macro lens?


Unfortunately, you don't. The D3000 does not have an autofocus motor; it relies on the the lens having one. This particular Sigma lens, unlike its Nikon equivalent, does not have a motor.

Nikon calls their lenses with an autofocus motor AF-S. Sigma calls theirs HSM.

Fitting a Sigma Lenset to Nikon D40


You have to make sure you bought the sigma lens with a NIKON mount. Sigma makes a Sigma mount as well as a Canon mount, of course neither of those mounts will work with your camera. Also you must also make sure your lens is the Sigma 70-300 HSM (/Hyper Sonic Motor) or it will not AF on the D40. I just bought this lens from Abes of Maine and I love it on my D40.
