    Ridiculous...I want this lens.

    How's the AF with it? Could you use it to shoot people/portraits (of course knowing the pore structure will be readily viewable)?

    I almost want to get the 105 non-VR since they're not too spendy.

    AF is good in good light. in dim light it sucks and hunts a LOT.

    the hunting is worse if you have it on "full" instead of the shortened focus range.

    The non-VR would be a great choice for the money. a lot of guys on here really like the tamron 90mm too, which is probably in that same price range.

    the VR is kinda useless for most of what I use it for, especially now that I have a 70-200 VR
