Yesterday, 5th March, 2011 I acquired this lens. Financial constraints didn't allow me to go in for its newer version the AF-S VR 105mm f/2.8G IF-ED.

Got a brand new piece after days of waiting and costed me $624.

Great lens. Super sharp. I don't think the newer version improved much on this older design optically. I don't think you'll be disappointed.

Thanks Dee.

Congrats!

Thanks. The newer version has ED & inbuilt silent motor. The last pic of the water drop with the pink flower's reflection is awesome..

Looked around in my old camera bag and found Vitacon 1A 52mm filter and the 52mm screw-on rubber hood. Fitted on the Micro lens. Phew...some saving..!

Also found a Tamron 52mm cross screen filter.
