I have used that version of the 55/3.5 Macro. It's one of Nikon's classics. Very fine results. My only real criticism is the 6 blade diaphragm produces hexagon-shaped out-of-focus highlights when stopped down-which can be distracting in the final image. But that was common in macros of the time. My EBC Fujinon 55/3.5 and Pentax K-mount 50/4 macros have a 5-blade diaphragm- about equally as distracting.
Also it's not multicoated, which is usually not perceptible.
