Yes, yes, I know I shouldn't.
I've take a lot of nice images of my girls with it - and that's what I mostly used if for. But we've entered a new phase in our household - the girls no longer want to go to parks/playgrounds after dinner or on the weekends. This has been replaced by homework and tons and tons of reading (no TV in our house!).

It is nearly half the weight of the NIKKOR*ED 180mm f/2.8 AI-s, and loses only one stop, and gains built-in macro (kind of), and apochromaticity, so both it and the 125mm f/2.5 are forever of interest to me, though now the recently released Zeiss 135 Apo-Sonnar may trump the 125mm (since they are in the same ballpark price range too)...
Kit building is certainly forever!
