How does this lens compare to the Tamron 90mm f2.8 AF, or the Sigma 105mm f2.8 AF?

This, though MF is one of the sharpest Macro lenses, by reputation.

I highly recommend this lens to the MF macro shooter.

This is one of the best macros around. Sharp as a tack. It's manual so using it for things other than macros takes some practice. I bought it for it macro ability but ended up useing it more for a portrait lens.

I tagged a couple photos in my flickr stream which were shot with this lens.

That thing is soooooooo nice, very tempting - I am saving for a couple of other purchases, would really love to have this thing - can't believe it lasted more than a couple hours on the forum (shocked that it has been listed for 5 days now)
