The 1.5 times multiplier that gets quoted for the D series cameras is a rather misleading term: it's actually a reduction in the field of view caused by the cropping effect of the sensor being approximately two thirds the size of a 35mm frame.

For example, if you take the centre two thirds of a 35mm frame taken using a 50mm lens, you'd have the same field of view as a 75mm lens would have given over the full frame. Hence the 1.5 times "multiplier".

But this doesn't change the depth of field or how close the lens can focus so your 60mm macro will function just the same on a D100 in those respects - it's just that the field of view will be equivalent to a 90mm lens.
