Thanks for the info, I would like to hear how you like the Nikon once you get it. In my case Tokina would have auto focus. The D7000 has a focus motor built in. So in my case that doesn't exclude the Tokina, it's still in the running.

Thanks again. Let me know what you think of the Nikon

One other characteristic I considered regarding the Tokina 100mm Macro is the external focus, the barrel extends out enough that it 'may' interfere with the object being photographed. Not a deal breaker though.

The Nikon 85mm Micro has internal focus and I can interchange the 52mm filters I already own.

I'll let you know of my initial impressions. :)

I use single point focus as well when setting my auto focus. With a moving object, in my case a bumblebee, it's very hard to point focus then recompose the shot (the bee just won't cooperate with me and remain still). The fault in the auto focus 'searching' is me , not the lens. Still objects are great with AF and VR.

I'm headed to Niagara Falls in the morning and can't wait to 'break-in' my rather new Tokina 12-24mm.
