As some of you might know I've been playing around with the idea of getting a lens in the 100-150mm focal length for a while. Reasons are to fill a gap in my lineup of primes (my lineup currently goes 24/2.8, 35/2, 50/1.4, 85/1.4, and 180/2.8), and also as the last step in 'readying' myself for D700, as a 135mm lens in FX will do for me in FX what my beloved 85/1.4 does in DX. So I'm now at the stage where I've read the formal reviews, I have one hand in my pocket about to take the wallet out, and I've found a copy of the lens at a decent price and have it on hold (I was lucky enough to be able to test and choose between 3). So just seeking those final valuable views, whether enouragement to proceed or things I should watch out for, from those of you who use this piece of glass (I know Nina and Ilkka both do for a start). To be clear I'm pretty excited about the possibility of having this lens, but my only little question is about the 105VR micro as an alternative - only because it would give me a macro option in my line-up which is something I don't have (then again there is always next year's bonus...). Thanks as always for your advice and shared experience.
