Nice VR, bla bla, but I'd rather have 105/3.5 or F4 and give more than 1:1 macro. Oh, wait, I already have 55/3.5 macro without spending $650. The 40mm looks like a nice addition.

Not a resounding amount of interest in the MC 105... Perhaps that means there will be fewer people buying this lens - good for me!

It is a bit underwhelming given that the new Canon RF L macro does 1.4x and includes the DC feature (defocus control to control bokeh which was on the Nikon 105 and 135 DC lenses).

The macro lens I use the most now is my Laowa 100/2.8 2x macro. I don't find AF useful for macro (I set the desired magnification and move the camera) and the Z bodies have VR that works on any lens.
