    NIKON D2Xs    ---    105mm    f/4.0    1/40s    ISO 100

    NIKON D2Xs    ---    105mm    f/11.0    1/500s    ISO 100

    Taken last week with the 105mm VR. I haven't given up my 60mm, though, as I still love that lens, too. I especially like it for doing tabletop photography:

    NIKON D2Xs    ---    60mm    f/32.0    1/1s    ISO 100

    NIKON D2Xs    ---    60mm    f/22.0    6s    ISO 100

    I think the 105 has a better working distance for 'classical' macro shooting, however, the 60 is optically fantastic and much more affordable. You can find them used for like $240, which can't really be beat.
