Pros: Incredible sharp! Nice focal lenght - 100 mm on digital
Cons:
Low focus speed. High focus noise.

I found this lense in my office basement. It was on shelf with "useless" old foto stuff. My version seems to have more than 10 years! and its working fine on digital. I dont understand why someone throw this to trash? Its superb sharp. It has very low chromatic aberration (less than mine 105VR). On digital body has ideal focal lenght for macro - about 100 mm. I love it, its my favorite lense. I think Nikon shoud make an SWM & VR version. Bad things: for 1:1, object is very close to lense - forget about bild-in flash (object is in a shadow), focus is slow and make big noise - live objects escape before it focuses.
