 The macro lens (or micro in Nikon's jargon) is an entirely different lens that is designed for shallow DOF situations and maximum contrast for copy work and similar tasks.

That is why when I bought my Nikon 105 VR there was a warning on a red paper inside the box (It is prohibited to use this lens for portraits)

But you are right, the new 58 1.8 designed especially for  rich show off people that has special characters poor people can't see.
