F/4 version is........ DARK. Combine it with PN-11 auto extension tube if you want to get to 1:1 and the viewfinder is nearly black.

That depends on the camera. 105/4+PN-11 is bright enough for me on D40 but too dark on EM or FM. Of course brighter would be nicer and 2.8 would be better for portraits. In this case faster lens isn't even heavier.
