Thanks for the suggestions guys. It's not a matter of her regarding it as a slap in the her face; I would regard it as a slap in her face. Actually, when I told her, she too suggested returning it. But by that time, it had started to grow on me. I like it. And I can always get the extension tubes. In the meantime, I have a fast mild telephoto that works wonders in low light compared to my Sigma 150-500 f/6.3 at 1/4000 sec. With the 500 shooting flying cardinals and other small birds, after 2hours, about 70% of the shots have nothing in them. With the 85, most of the shots have something in them. Depth of field at f/1.8 is about the same as the 500 at f/6.3 so the number of out of focus birds is about the same. And it made a great portrait shot of her. So, all in all, I'm happy with the lens (not shooting any macro until the spring when the bugs and flowers come out). Just a little annoyed at the Nikon Store (or perhaps their webmaster)

No, wouldn't trade her in; took too long to find her.
