The review does the lens credit, it has seemed a little oddball. A bit expensive though....
That third pic is like my wife giving me a hard time
I don't think it is expensive (compared to the rest). It is considerably cheaper than the 105VR and still below the 60mm/2.8.
So it is the cheapest makro lens you can get for the small DX cams without AF motor.
The only other option I see here is the Tamron 90/2,8, which is nice for portrait as well.

Nice pics, oppi, the dragonfly is awesome.
Also have some from my private collection to share.
Thanks. (I don't have too many of those shots...)
So you are into crab spiders? I love spiders too.
And I have one to show that was taken with a 55-200VR and a Raynox 150, my ultimate low cost macro solution.
It was much harder to shoot with that combination. Focus was only possible within a certain distance, a lot of light was needed, and picture composition was minimal, not to speak about the poor out of focus blur. But center sharpness was ok. <img src='http://forum.photozone.de/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/smile.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt='
The only advantage of using the 55-200VR and a Raynox 150 or 250 was that I could go beyond 1:1.
