    • I've watched on and off for a 200mm Micro for a while, as it's supposed to be outstanding. ~$900 seems to be the going rate-quite telling for an AF-D lens to still be that pricey IMO-and even though I'm certainly not averse to spending that much on a lens it's been a lot of back and forth for me to see it makes sense for me for that particular lens. I LOVE the 105mm f/2.8D Micro. In fact in actual macro use I tested it a fair bit along side the AF-S VR version I briefly owned and found the D lens better from about 1:4 on down(although I might be tempted to try it again since IIRC the D850 can do automated focus stacking with AF-S lenses although I could be confusing that with a different camera). If the 200mm f/4D is even equal to the 105mm, I know I would be extremely pleased with the results. My problem is that the 105 is often snug for me in my typical studio macro situation, and even down to 1:1 I don't normally find the lens getting in my way or obstructing the light(that is a real problem with the 60mm f/2.8D and every other ~50mm macro lens I've used). I know that's drifting far from the original topic of the thread, though. To me dedicated DX lenses are a good thing for times where I want a small and light kit, even though for someone who shoots FX and DX side by side there's also a good argument against dedicated DX lenses. Going back around again, that's why I settled on Fuji for small and light, and am continuing to use F mount for everything else.
