Technically a great lens but difficult to use, especially for moving subjects in dim light such as butterflies in a shaded area.  The  105 mm Micro Nikkor is very hand holdable, but the 200 is much heavier and magnifies all minor camera/lens movements making it much more difficult to hand hold this lens.  

  

The use of a tripod will also make it more difficult to chase moving subjects.  The lens absolutely excels at close-ups of still images such as flowers.  The lens's 200 mm perspective allows control of focus and backgrounds that cannot be duplicated by shorter focal length close-up lenses.
