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!

I have a feeling this is going to be a very popular lens. The price is less than many expected

Unfortunately, whilst I don't think $999 is in any way a bargain (sign of the times..), it's even more expensive here (Switzerland) where the recommended retail price is around $1400. What a ripoff..

Is the additional cost in Switzerland due to a form of taxes?  Or did Nikon decide the Swiss should pay 40% more than everyone else?  If not, "What a ripoff" is a rather disingenuous statement.  If it is the case, I'd agree.  Which one is it?
