    I also agree, in the sense that the older Nikkors may not seem as good as some of the newer versions, unlike Carl Zeiss and Zuiko lenses.

    Are you looking specifically for a portrait lense? Have you considered the 85mm range?

    wah lao now i become sloggivonnie. i shouldn't have said anything earlier.

    actually was looking for a relatively cheap macro lens. but since it isn't exactly a good price and what leong has said, i guess i'll scrap the thought. lol.

    For portrait, i felt that your 80-200f2.8 is a very nice lens, although it is a pain to use especially on crop sensor body.

    Or you can consider 50mmf1.4 or 85mmf1.8 for portrait. Brand new around $500 plus.

    For Macro, you might want to start of with Tamron 90mm, Tokina 100mm or 2nd hand Nikon AFD105mm.

    For 2nd hand Tamron or Tokina, the B&S price now is around $450.

    Actually i think whether to sell off my Tamron 90mm and Sigma 10-20mm, to get the Tokina 11-16mmf2.8.

    You means Sigma 50mmf1.4?

    No sure how to said worth it or not...... do you need that lens now?
    Would prefer you to wait for the new Nikon AFS 50mmf1.4, at least you wouldn't think of upgrading that lens anymore.

    hmmm i like my 80-200 too. except that i have confirmed it does backfocus, closer to the MFD side. At distances closer to infinity, its fine. so now i MF when shooting closer subjects with it.

    hmmm ok haha i want to type more but i need to go process photos. my friend chasing me again for the photos.

    Lay down your sweet and weary head
    Night is falling, we have come to journey's end
    Sleep now and dream of the ones who came before
    They are calling from across a distant shore.

    Why do you weep, what are these tears upon your face
    Soon you will sleep, all of your fears will pass away
    Safe in my arms you're only sleeping
    What can you see on the horizon
    Why do the white gulls call

    Across the seas, a pale moon rises
    The ships have come to carry you home

    And all will turn to silver glass
    A light on the water, grey ships pass
    It is such a quiet thing to fall,
    But far more terrible is to admit it
