    This lens is rated pretty well... have a look at the following review...

    AF is very fast and silent. Very sharp!

    At first I was thinking of getting Tamron 180mm, tested it and found that AF is very slow and noisy!

    Some of my butterflies shots...

    great lens, AF is much faster than the little bro 105mm... only thing is a little heavy.
    if you do not need the working distance, might want to top up for the AFS 105mm VR... focusing is even faster, lighter and VR but about $200+ pricer

    Lords selling at $870, OP at $860 (grey set). My personal opinion is that 150mm have much greater advantage specially for butterfly shooting.

    The lens is quite sharp. For reference, have a look at Mtunlinn's posts in the Macro pics forum - he's using this lens.

    There is a good discussion thread in nikonians on the Nikon 105VR vs Sigma 150 you might want to have a look at it :
