Cheapish 400 5.6 AF lens... - Photography

Can anyone recomend a decent 400 5.6 in the Nikon AF mount? Ive seen Sigma 400 5.6 floating about the second hand markets, and it seems to be a reasonable performer, by all accounts....

    make sure you get the APO macro version with the 77mm filter it is a good
    percormer the 73mm version is bad

    Do you really need Auto Focus? I only ask because this lens:

    I found AF to be of limited use for both long lenses and macro work back in my
    Canon EOS 620 days. I now have a D100 (and F70) and have a Micro Nikkor 200/F4
    and Nikkor 400/5.6 ED, both MF lenses. I had them "chipped" by Rolland Elliot
    and they meter just fine in all modes.
