Summary: The AF is a tad slow and loud, but aside from that I get very sharp lovely images from it! If I had the money I would have splurged on the newer G version since I don't like using this during events like wedding ceremonies, because the AF is so loud.
Summary: Awesome lens! Its not VR.... But if you have a steady hand its not to bad and when doing macro you'll most likely want a tripod anyways. But I ordered this on the 19th and it was here on the 22nd....3 day delivery!! Amazing!
but I like the feel of the metal and build quality

Summary: TACK SHARP! Only had it two days and have taken nearly 2k pictures. It's old school in design, but I like the feel of the metal and build quality. Yes VR would be nice, but I don't know if that serves a purpose in Micro photography. All I can say is bugs beware! You are on candid camera!
