You probably realiser that most macro lenses lose maximum aperture as you focus closer. The 105mm VR Nikkor displays the same characteristic, though you would be a little better off as it is f/4.8 at minimum focus. You'd gain quite a bit in working distance, though - the Nikkor is 148mm at minimum focus because its barrell doesn't extend, whereas the Tamron goes down to just 95mm.

If you haven't seen it, the charts in this thread are quite useful
