If a 105 2.8 micro has been sitting in your bag and is not being used...I am interested.

Thanks, Dennis.

Phil,

 

I have the G, it is a beauty and you will have to pry it from my cold dead hands.  No doubt you know that and that is why you are looking for one.

 

The Nikon 105 is really an amazing glass. Hope you find what you are looking for, you will greatly enjoy it.

I might have to go off-brand. Still thinking about it. If it's auto focus, I am interested.

Hi Phil,

 

If you do go that way, you might want to consider the Sigma 105/2.8 macro.  I've had mine since 2016 and have been very pleased with it.  :)

OK... Looking at Sigma. I don't think I will use it enough to get a new Nikon G.

Here is a Good Nikon 105 f/2.8 G at KEH:

And one here rated Like New - at Nikonians:

Looks like the used market is $550-600.

 

It's pretty remarkable how well that lens has held it's value.
