How suitable is the Nikon 60mm f/2.8G ED AF-S Micro-Nikkor Lens for smaller product (like sunglases) photography?

It would be used on a D5200 so it would give angles of view like a 90mm lens.

judging by this review I think its suitable

You'll probably be shooting at f/5.6-11 and this lens performs pretty stellar in that range. Also there is minimal distortion.

Here is a photo using that lens at f/11 from about 2.8 feet away

Any suggestions on how to improve the quality of the photo?

-light the sheet the glasses are on from underneath. This will remove shadows and clip it to 100% white. This white of your background should match the white of this website.
-light the glasses more dramatically, not so flat. Making things pop on white take a bit of work.
-watch your white balance, there is a yellow-green colour cast
