    Cons: The M/A switch is really bad design, but I rarely switch to AF, so not a big deal. You would need to operate this lens on a tripod in most situations to get crisp shots. The DOF will always be quite small, no matter how much you stop down, when focusing really close (I don't mind). It will block the pop-up flash when focusing close. Optical resolution might not quite enough to meet the demands of the newest Nikon bodies (but try to find a better substitute - I don't think you can).

    Pros: By far the best macro lens I ever tried. 200 mm gives a lovely working distance when working with insects. It is dead sharp even when stopped down a lot, which is amazing. Manual focus is a joy to work on this lens - very smooth and accurate.

    Summary: The best FF macro lens you can buy from Nikon.

    Cons: Heavy, AF-MF switch is awkward and seems fragile.

    Pros: 1:1, IQ and working distance. My favorite macro lens. I use three Nikon macros (60G, 105VR and 200). Which I use depends on subject matter and working distance requirements, but this lens tends to provide the most exciting images. I don't always carry it because of its size and weight, but I love the results when I do.

    Summary: Wow, splendid optics!
