AF-D Micro 105mm vs. 105VR sharpness

To those who actually used both lenses: I currently own the AF-D Version which is my most used lens. Although my 60mm Micro Nikkor is a little bit sharper I prefer the 105 for its working distance. I think about upgrading to the VR Version because I hope that it gives me the same sharpness than the 60mm Micro plus the working distance of the 105.
Hence my question if the IQ of the new Version is really better than the AF-D.

I also read in the review at popphoto.com that the actual magnificaton of the VR is actually 1:0.7 and not 1:1 which would be a great thing if it is actually true. Can anyone who has used the lens confirm this?

Regards

Fritz
