I'll own this lens immediately, it'll be a welcome portrait lens when I don't want to carry the 200/2. Not understanding why everyone is crying about the price, maybe you all should shoot Canon or Sigma. It is what it is, or rather, what it's always been; expensive.
105 is among my favorite focal lengths and f1.4 coupled with Nikon's latest technology make this increasingly attractive. I won't argue about the price either, I'll just wait for some future time when I can get 4% from B&H and a $400 Nikon rebate (hope springs eternal).
