Thanks for the advice, folks... it's an awesome photo, ruchai!

I'm guessing b&h will have the best prices on the Internet for the lens... I appreciate the link.

I guess it will be something for which I save up!

Okay, I see that B&H has the same lens IMPORTED for about $50 cheaper.

Should I NEVER purchase something imported? Am I just asking for headaches? I mean, $50 is $50!

The imported are what's called "gray market". They do not come with Nikon's 5 year warranty, just the 1 year that the STORE gives you. Also, any problem with the lens in the future, and Nikon USA will not fix it, even if you want to pay for it.

If you don't have a long tele lens, and is willing to settle with a non-true macro, you should checkout Sigma's 70-300 DG APO DG Macro. It's about $220, and those you have it says it has a pretty good macro feature. Plus you can use it as a tele.

Good Luck!

"Should I NEVER purchase something imported?...."

What camera are you going to use with the macro lens? LOL. Attached is another picture taken with made in Thailand D50 and micro-nikkor 60mm. My D200 was also made in Thailand.
