Optically still a very good macro lens (optics), even though it is aging.
Very good build quality, only equalled by the Canon 180mm f3.5 (which obviously does not mount on a Nikon body).
Slow AF. But the Tamron is also slow. The Sigma 150mm f2.8 is faster with AF, but a shorter tele.
Very hefty price tag.
Won't AF on bodies without which lack AF motor.
Worthy competitors for this lens for Nikon body: Tamron 180mm f3.5 (won't AF on bodies without AF motor either) and Sigma 150mm f2.8.
