Re: cheaper macro lens instead of $1000 Nikon


I was looking at the older macro 105 , but it didn't come with VR ?
I found a listing for the one you mentioned below on ebay for $400 , which is pretty cheap.. but trying to work out why it's so cheap?
I though if it had VR it was the $1000 one?

the PN tube.. doesn't this just allow the camera to focus closer?, but you will then lose some light?
Thanks for the suggestion.. and for $400 it's a decent price.. just always wary about buying 2nd hand old lenses.  
I'm wondering if I'm better off , just spending $500 for a 70 - 300 and then attaching my raynox 250 to it somehow
