Tamron 90mm macro v.s. Nikon 200 F4 Micro

I have the tamron macro, a very nice little lens.

recently i have got a line on a used nikon 200mm f4 micro.

I have read up on the posts on dpreview on the nikon.

Any thoughts here on how they compare?

Obviously i am getting a longer focal length which is nice when you don't want to be in your subjects nose when taking macro photos.

How about the image quality?

I have both of them and like them but I use mostly the 200, you just can't beat the working distance, and I like having the lens collar.

Its also a very nice 200 mm telephoto.

I llike that with the 6T added you get almost 2:1 and the 2x tc + tc you get 4:1 or just the 2x tc 2:1 and a huge working distance for 1:1
